UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Learn more about UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why each and every hosting data center offers them.
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a web server operational if there are troubles with the main power supply - an outage or shaky current which cannot keep the machine functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, an effective battery that's connected to the hosting server and to the electric power network consistently, so in case there is any blackout, it is already operating, which enables the server to carry on working without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up an entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS that provides this time. These two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to avoid info loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electric power issue.
