UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Learn more info on UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why each and every hosting data center offers them.
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting service providers within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the correct functioning of the web servers located in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the servers at all times, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can supply the required power to keep the servers functioning for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.
