Hi all,

I'm fairly new to working with UPS's and enterprise systems and have
been given the task to find a UPS that can power 3 servers for up to 10
minutes before the generators at our datacenter can fire up. Also, I've
heard of systems which can make a phone call in the event that power is
lost so that staff can be dispatched to deal with the outage. Does
anyone know of a UPS with these features? I'm not sure about the
voltage requirements of the servers, but all three are dual processor
machines with nothing special added as far as server components go so
bascially a rough estimate will suffice for my first requirement.

Much thanks in advance,

I think you will be cheaper and more flexible with 3 small programmable UPS
units, one for each server, rather than one big and expensive unit.
