I actually may start folding on the machines which aren't too heavily used.

This is not true of all Generac Guardians. I work with with a couple and they do not do this.

And if they do, it's still a UPS in this case.

Most Guardians provide power that is as clean, or cleaner than what comes from most utility companies as well.

The rack is mostly finished but I am missing a few things like rails and drive bay blanks. The servers are one of my sources of income as I host things on them. There are a few towers and also some actual rackmounted servers. Most importantly I do not choke these on a wimpy internet connection. I have a 38 down and 25 up connection and my new 300 down 65 up Fios connection should be set up in a few days.
Services:
--- Shorewall
---MYSQL
---DHCP
---DNS
---Squid
---PBX
---Splunk
---VPSs
---Minecraft
---Storage
---Smart House --- Mirage (Custom coded in java by me biggrin.gif)
---Alot of other things aswell
Here are the rackmount servers in order from top to bottom starting below the screen.
Dell Poweredge 1750 -- Dual Xeon 2.4 GHz -- 6 GB RAM Ubuntu Server 12.04
HP Proliant DL360 G4p -- Dual Xeon 3.4 GHz-- 6 GB RAM Ubuntu Server 12.04
HP Proliant DL360 G4 -- Dual Xeon 3.6GHz -- 6 GB RAM Ubuntu Server 12.04
HP Proliant DL360 G4 -- Dual Xeon 3.4 GHz -- 4 GB RAM Ubuntu Server 12.04
HP Proliant DL360 G4p -- Dual Xeon 3.6 GHz-- 6 GB RAM Windows Server 2012 RC
#This one is my baby -- The Beast
HP Proliant DL585 -- Quad AMD Dual Core Opteron 3.0 GHz -- 40 GB RAM Ubuntu Server 12.04
Compaq ProLiant ML350 G3 -- Intel Xeon 2.4 GHz -- 3 GB RAM Ubuntu Server 12.04
All of the Xeons are kind of dual core since the OS sees the threads as cores.
All of these guys have 15k Drives and most of them are in raid 10 with capacities varying from 18 Gigabytes to 146 Gigabytes.
*cough If anyone has 2.5 Drives that are gathering dust I would love to have some! The Beast is hungry
The whole house is linked up with 100 Mbp connections and all the servers are interconnected with a 1 Gbps Backbone and my sig rig is on 1 Gbp too. All of which are separate through VPN in teh switch itself (HP Procurve 8000m).
Please ask questions, comment or tell me where I can improve!

Couple questions for the OP or others with experience (don't really mean to hijack a thread, just have a couple questions).
I just bought two HP Proliant DL360 G4p servers used from a local college. They wiped the hard drives and such so I am looking into installing ubuntu or xubuntu on these servers with the hopes of using one as a LAMP server and the other possibly as a media server for movies and music or else as another LAMP.

Ok, the main question... Did you have any problems installing ubuntu on yours? Did you use any "special" version? I saw on some site (I actually think it was somewhere on HP's site) that there were "special versions" of ubuntu (and other linux flavors) that were built specifically for these servers. Were there any other drivers that you had to install?

I'm a little nervous diving into a "real" server. My previous experience is "re-purposing" old desktop pcs and making them into small servers. Just hoping for a little guidance or insight. Thanks.

BTW, your setup is awesome! Can only dream of something like that for me in the future.

Oh, and reading about the speeds listed above... You guys make my DSL sound like a pile of crap! 'Course, I already knew that! lol

Thread Starter 
I know this is a really late reply but the my G4Ps did not have any issues with ubuntu but some of the other machines did. I was only able to get 10.04 to run on them because the installer for 12.04 would freeze up.

Thanks for teh compliments by the way.

mgdev, System Engineer here for the past 10 years. When ever you have the means to get your hands on a good UPS i would do so.

It has been mentioned here before as to why, so I will not repeat it.

It would be sad to have a box, half of them or all to go pufff.

We have 2 APC SURTD5000XLT with an extra bank of batteries for each UPS. This runs 10 physical servers, plus EMC VNX SANs, switches and more.
Yes we also have a generator, Generac, but the UPS is a must.

Just my $0.02
