UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Understand a lot more about UPSs & diesel backup generators and discover why each hosting data center has them.
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unstable and unable to support the appropriate functioning of the web servers situated within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the servers at all times, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can give you the needed energy to keep the servers functioning for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
