UPS for small business?

currently we have the following hardware in our rack:

  • 2 x Dell Poweredge R430

  • Synology RS3617xs+

  • Sophos UTM

  • small Dell PowerConnect Switch

  • HP ProLiant Octacore something

 speed testWhats still missing is an Uninterruptible Power Supply. What would be an appropriate UPS to power these devices plus maybe one or two more R430s? showbox

Re: UPS for small business?

I usually allocate one Smart-UPS 1000 (2U) with a Network Management Card to support each server along with some ancillary equipment.  This provides the longest run time during a power outage.  If I wasn't being conservative, I'd double the number of servers.

 

Based on your current configuration, that'd be three devices, which also allows for your anticipated growth pattern.


I'm sure others would approach this differently.
