UPS & surge protection power advice APC Back-UPS 350
Posted on 2011-02-24
We have a small office here in the UK and are looking to affordably protect ourselves from power surges and power outages. We are contemplating purchasing an APC Back-UPS 350, 230V which has three UPS sockets as a forth socket with only protection against power spikes.
We have a Dell server running Windows Server 2008 and a Windows 7 workstation. Would we be able to configure both to shutdown gracefully in the event of a power loss or would only one be able to respond to power loss with this unit?
For our other equipment could we plug a cheap extension into the non-ups port to get power surge protection for our printers, scanners, etc?
