All UPSs which can be controlled (and can control) through the serial port
can shut down a server gracfully.
We use APC SmartUPS 3000 (3kVA) with 3 servers on each.  All the servers are
connected to their respective UPS via Serial. When the power goes out and
the battery is low, it sends a signal to the servers which shut down all the
services and shut themselves down.

I am looking for a UPS that is specifically for use with Exchange Servers.
I want something that will shut down services before bringing down the
server.  I have had problems in the past with the UPS bringing down the
server and as a result I have experienced database corruption.  Any
suggestions would be appreciated!
