You can just have one UPS for a bank of servers. You do not need a separate one for each server.

Well, there are some possibilities, depending on what you rate important :
if you have 4 separate ups, 1 can go out while the others still work
if you have only one, obviously all 4 servers go down.
If you have 4, you can schedule them separately for maintenance, or shutdown.
Technically, both are possible, a single one will teke less room and generate less heat than 4 of them.
So it depends on your choice; mostly the bigger ones will have better interface and control possibilities.
