    What UPS?

    I currently have a UPS (cant remember which one but its running max constantly) all it has connected are 2 servers.

    What basic UPS would you reccommend for a 2 server set up leaving a little head room?

    Thanks

    Chris

    Depends on the power requirements of the servers there is a calculator on the apc website somewhere.

    You may also want to take into account how long you want the Server to last on the battery. Obviously the bigger the UPS the longer it will go.

    Have been using the APC 1500 rackmount for dual server setups with good success. Some have mentioned elsewhere it's slightly overkill however as above the life expectancy on them is raised somewhat over places I've gone to running a pair of high demand servers on a single APC 1000 *and* in remote locations, with very unstable power supply. Definitely best safe rather than sorry with UPS.
