UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Understand a lot more about UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why each hosting data center has them.
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power a computer or a web server to prevent the loss of data when the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the uninterrupted functioning of all the machines located there. As the UPS works at all times, it offers the desired power for the servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is vital for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it gives them plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
