Battery Backup solution for a server...
Nov. 22nd, 2004 @ 01:23 pm
So I have a colocated server, and it went off this weekend due to a power-hic-up at the colo facility. They said it was less than a second, but my server has no battery backup so down it went.
I'm running linux on it (fedora core2).
I need a battery backup solution. Anyone have one that they particularly like?
I can't pay an arm and a leg, I'm look at $100 or less if possible.
Doesn't have to give me 5 hours of uptime without power, just has to be able to prevent the server going down because of a minor hic-up. 5 minute uptime is fine by me.
(x-posted a bit)
edit: guess I should have specified, I'd like one that's interfacable so that I can have it shutdown the machine if the power doesn't return in a short period of time.
I like the APC UPSs, even the low-end ones have serial or USB interfaces that you can use to monitor or shutdown the system with.

I'm just suprised that they're not providing UPS as part of the CoLo service. I thought this was SOP for these arrangements. Are they going to charge you any more for the space that the UPS is going to take up?
Oh. And a 2nd on the APC recommendation. They're supported by the free UPS monitoring packages pretty well it seems.
I'm getting a sick good deal, so I don't think they're throwing in nice little extras like that.
They're in the midwest and have a huge facility, so they really don't care how much space things take up. heh.
