Im trying work out the best size UPS for our servers. (without going over board and over priced)
We have -
1 x Dell t300 (Single quad core processor, 2x SAS drives, two power supplies)
1 x Dell t410 (Dual quard core processor, 2 SATA drives, two power supplies)
How do I correctly detirmine what I need?
Servers only need to run for 10 minutes in a blackout so they have enough time to safely shutdown.
Each server would need to connect to USB on UPS so it can get the shut down signal. Does this mean I need a seperate UPS for each?
PS; the APC website has a UPS sizing application. It told me I need 1 2200VA UPS. This seems overkill to me as it says only 48% capacity on the UPS will be used allowing the servers to run for 27 minutes.
