Hi experts,

I have been using UPSs for a while now but just realized that I am not using it properly.

We have the power cables of 2 entrée level tower servers, both running Linux,
connected on a 1000 VA APC Ups.
It keeps the server online on power outages, but when the outage is too long it doesn't turn of the servers. Led to 1 entrée server not powering on (power supply damaged).

What tips, guides or resources can I use to put UPSs in a server environment to better use?
Think about the UPS software/configuration, the types of connection the UPS needs, the type of UPS suited for this environment etc etc.
