Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am planning to build a single server machine which is highly dependent on data residing in RAM for performance reasons. I am looking for a UPS which can power the PC during a blackout (very rare) and when the battery level is like %20, it sends a signal to Windows 2008 to shutdown. Even if it's only for a few minutes, that's good enough. This is for home use so I am looking for an inexpensive unit ( less than $300? ).

Which brand/model is good choice? I prefer one whose battery is easily & cheaply replaced.

Any UPS that comes with an appropriate connection and compatible software should meet your needs. I've had both Tripp Lite and APC myself.

Same here. Good experiences with APC SmartUPS, both onder Linux and Windows. –  Martijn Heemels May 15 '10 at 17:11
