We have a DELL Power edge 2900 with a few SCSI drives in it and an external USB hard drive for some backup.
Could someone recommend a UPS that would be suitable for this machine? Since having new SCSI drives put in our old UPS can't handle the load anymore.
I tend to find the APC UPS Product Selector is pretty handy for this:
Run through your specs and confirm your other environmental factors and it should give you some appropriate options.
Any problems, give me a call.
Just the one server on this UPS? APC should do something for that that won't break the bank - their calculator is handy as stated.
What was the capacity of your old ups? I would think an APC 1500 would be adequate.
Depends on the runtime you want.
Be careful if you have a windows 2008 box as some ups do not work with this version of windows and will not talk to the ups.
