We're trying to select the best UPS within our budget.
Our goal is to allow 2 x HP Proliant ML350 G6 servers time enough to shutdown. We're estimating this to be no more than 10 minutes.
Can anyone help me to understand what I should be looking for in a UPS? Our usual suppliers have quoted us for some fairly expensive gear:
APC Smart UPS 3000 RM XL
.. coming in at close to £2000.
Previously on our old servers we had some APC units that, I believe, were purchased for a few hundred pounds. These were SBS 2003 machines running on Proliant g3's, I think.
