UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Discover a lot more about UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why each and every hosting data center has them.
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the proper functioning of the web servers located in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers all of the time, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can give you the necessary energy to keep the web servers functioning for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
