dual power supply, case and motherboard for a server

hi i hope you are well.

i want to build a server (dont want to buy a dell or whatever) and want to put in a redundant power supply that auto fails over if the other one dies.

does anyone know of any cost effective way of doing this? if so what case and what psu?

cheers!

In the past, I've depended on these products:

HOWEVER, I was a reseller with their local office nearby. If you don't have the correct channel (i.e. a good reseller with good contact with that company), it's hard to get the product, but also harder to get good service/warranty.

Pricing was reasonable at that time, case + PSU I'm guessing about 300 to 400 euros
