UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their role and why are they available in data center facilities all around the globe?
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server functional if there are problems with the primary power source - a disruption or shaky current that can't keep the machine functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, basically, a powerful battery which is attached to the machine and to the electric power network all the time, so if there is any interruption, it's already functioning, that permits the server to continue running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS that provides that time. Those two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power problem.
