UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Learn more about UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why each hosting data center includes them.
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power a computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of data if the main power source fails for some reason or becomes unstable. 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 the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS runs at all times, it provides the required power for the servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is essential for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case there is a power surge or outage, as it offers them plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
