I have to propose to my manager an upgrade to our Data Center UPS infrastructure.
We contacted APC sales to inquire a bit about this and the basic questions that were asked was:
1: What is your expected uptime?
2: How many servers and other devices?
3: What's the wattage sum?
The first two were easy to answer, but the third was not so easy.
All of my servers and devices have redundant power supplies.
So when I looked up the specs on our HP Proliant DL 360 G5/G6/G7 & DL 380 G5/G6/G7 they both showed 700 W (1 + 1) or 800 W (1 +1)
Now is that 800 W combined or 800 W * 2?
