UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Learn more about UPSs & diesel backup generators and discover why every hosting data center includes them.
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the appropriate operation of the web servers situated in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers at all times, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can provide you with the required energy to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.
