UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Discover more about UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why each hosting data center offers them.
The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server functional in case there are problems with the primary source - a disruption or shaky current that can't keep the web server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, a powerful battery that's attached to the server and to the electricity network constantly, so in case there is any interruption, it is already functioning, which allows the hosting server to carry on operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS which gives it this time. Those two power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or service provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power problem.
