I'm looking for a redundant power supply for a desktop PC. (i7 CPU). I have VMWare ESXi with several Windows Server 2008 R2 servers
I've found this iStarUSA IS550R8P but there are no reviews. Any recommendations?

yes I built a whitebox too and could not find a redundant psu to add to a full tower case
I did find one but it was £700 so it was too expensive so it might have been the IS-550R8P

the question is however why are you wanting a redundant psu when your motherboard and cpu are not redundant if you running a production server you can get rack servers with redundant psu's but even so your talking several grand for a truely redundand fault tollerant system

What you could do as I thought of doing this is runn your drives off a seperate psu how to wire this up to power up off the motherboard see

no problem I didn't go down that route either as my whitebox was a test rig and I have also bought a xeon server for my esx vsphere test rig to learn advanced vsphere techniques like clustering and vmotion/ha, that is a tue server mother board and has two 1366 cpu sockets but only has 1 power input so like i said a true ft system is silly £ or $
