We are going to upgrade our UPS on site.
We currently have a single Eaton 5PX and Eaton 5130 UPS running our single and only cabinet at head office. We recently had a power cut which flagged issues. These are the run time & load on the 5px and also a battery warning message. We would now like to increase the wattage and run time, along with managing the UPS and also shutting down our on-premises vmware hosts if required.
We also have 2x old managed APC PDUs.
We have worked out that we have c6000 watts to cover. Rather than buying a N=1 UPS at a steep cost are we able to use two 5px 3000 eatons splitting the load across the dual powered devices (switches, storage and servers) and use the 5130 for non-critical systems.
Is this possible?
Would you also replace the APC PDUs for eatons, would we requires x2 and how best to configure?
