UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Learn more details on UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why every hosting data center features them.
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery which is used to power some type of computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of information if the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the constant operation of all of the web servers located there. Since the UPS runs constantly, it provides the necessary power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is crucial for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the event of a power surge or outage, as it gives them lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
