UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What exactly is a diesel backup generator? For what reason are they present in each and every data center?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery used to power some type of computer or a web server in order to avoid the loss of information when the main source of energy fails for whatever reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the consistent operation of all of the machines located there. Since the UPS runs all the time, it provides the desired power for the machines to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is essential for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case there is a power surge or outage, as it gives them ample time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
