Greetings Experts.  I am purchasing a server and would like to get a UPS at the same time.  However, I have a dumb question.

The server is a HP Proliant DL380 G3 Server that has redundant 400W power supplies.  When shopping for the UPS, does that mean I need a UPS that can handle 800W?  I appreciate the help.
