UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What exactly is a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they present in every data center?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting companies within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the correct running of the web servers based in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the web servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can deliver the necessary electric power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.
