What i'm not glad is to use a UPS which cannot charge the battery, so it's just a glorified surge regulator.

Server UPS (~3 minutes for both servers):

 

 

 

 

Printer + Network equipment (at least 20 minutes, haven't tested longer)

 




Spoiler!

You should also get some Apple stickers so it won't get viruses, an Alienware logo so it can play games amazingly and some Razer gear so everyone knows you are totally 1337.

240W is likely nowhere near enough (assuming sig rig).
I was never a fan of those "pod" type UPS systems...

Might be worth investing in another UPS unit for your rig, however those things are great for other things like monitors etc!

Wow. Great write up. I'll agree with Axipher on perhaps adding some pointers on software interactions and data protections with a quality UPS. I live in an area with frequent power fluctuations during the summer and a UPS is a must. Beeps like a jack russel terrier during those times too. biggrin.gif

I'll be sure to point people towards this guide the next time there is a wave of UPS questions. They always seem to come in waves here.
