UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Learn more details on UPSs & diesel backup generators and discover why each hosting data center features them.
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery used to power a computer or a hosting server to prevent the loss of info in case the main source of energy fails for whatever reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the continuous running of all the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS runs all the time, it provides the necessary power for the machines to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is vital for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case of a power surge or outage, as it offers them enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
