Are there redundant power supplies on the Google Search Appliance?

I believe that the GSA is essentially two 1u boxes pancaked together, so each of them would need a redundant power supply for the GSA to stay up during power loss from one UPS.

The Google Search Appliance models GB-7007 and GB-9009 and the storage unit for model GB-9009 are provided with two redundant power supplies.

The Google Search Appliance model GB-1001 (series S5) is provided with a single power supply, which can be augmented with a second, user-installed power supply. The second power supply must be purchased from Dell Computer. Copy the information from the Dell service tag on the search appliance. Contact Dell to purchase the appropriate power supply, which has the Dell part number 430-2240 / 430-2730. Installing the power supply does not void the search appliance warranty.
