UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What precisely a diesel backup generator? Why are they found in each and every data center facility?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting companies inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the proper functioning of the machines located within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can provide the required power to keep the web servers up and running for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.

You won't notice anything even in case there is an interruption, because our backup units will be able to power all the devices and we won't have to limit the amount of working servers or the network equipment which manages the traffic to your sites.
