    good ups

    Hi, does anyone know any good ups that will power a linux server till the battery gets to a certain percentage empty, then safly power it down

    i am looking for one that will supply a couple of hours of power for a linux box, no monitor or anything

    Also, one where u can connect separate batterys to the unit would be good, so, for example, you got the main ups, with, say 4 batterys connected to it

    So does anyone know any companies, or websites, with good ups.

    Thanx

    Matt

    I agree with Mark... APC makes nice stuff, and you can configure their UPSes to talk to your server via serial port for a safe shutdown. Check their site, they have online KVA calculators and all sorts of geeky funkymonkeyjunk that relates to power.

    First comments on the link you posted refer to the dude finding answers with google. Are you trying to say that searching (locally and googley) is the key to all answers?

    Answering APC to a UPS question is like answering Windows to an operating system question. You are suggesting good marketing as opposed to good technical quality.

    A company that has the higher market share does not necessarily make the better product. Look at others beyond APC. Pay close attention to the testing for surges.
    This space for let.
    Inquire within.

    Ok, thanx allot guys, i have seen a pretty ups in one of the offices of a company my friend is a server admin for

    cant remember the make, but you can add upto 8 speparate batteries. Also, if the power goes below 240, it regulates it up2 240, and if it goes above, it regulates it down

    it also shuts down the server, but its a windows server, so i will have to find out if it does the same with linux, because thats the main thing i want really
