Thanks for the infoBtw here is the guy that sells the flaming sports team logo stickers that work great as a skin for your laptop. Some of them really are "flaming" in the sense if the word even for those who prefer alt. Lifestyles. Most all r really cool though. Average $4.99 price.

It depends on the criticality of your data center. I assume that a library’s data center is less critical than a business’s and cannot not justify as great an expense. I also assume that a librar y is not flush with cash at the moment. (My daughter works for NYPL. I know how tough things are.)However, if you can afford dual stages, Webster is absolutely correct. Don’t spend more on the battery capacity than necessary. Co nversely, remember to allow for future server expansion and the inev itable decline in battery strength over time.It sounds like you want to replace the aging UPS. Depending on its adaptability and condition, maybe you could add the generator stage to it now and replace the battery stage at a later date.Good luck. Paint a flaming Indian on it and it will be fine. <image001.jpg> Steve Raffensberger Produban US Mail Code: 11-900-PB3 1130 Berkshire Boulevard Wyomissing, PA 19610 sraffens@xxxxxxxxxxxFrom: thin-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:thin-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of WebsterSent: Monday, February 22, 2010 12:47 PM To: thin@xxxxxxxxxxxxxSubject: [THIN] Re: OT: Thoughts on Vendors for Suggestions for Backup UPS and or Generator Vendor for medium size computer roomAPC and get a UPS that will last for as long as it will take the generator to come online. The more battery capacity you buy for your UPS, the more expensive the UPS system (both cost and rack/ server room space).WebsterFrom: thin-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:thin-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Jim Kenzig Subject: [THIN] OT: Thoughts on Vendors for Suggestions for Backup UPS and or Generator Vendor for medium size computer roomHi All,I am running about 70 servers along with disk arrays and a/c on our current ups in our computer room which lasts about 15 minutes in a power outage. This is clearly not enough time to shut down the servers if an outage lasts past that. The unit is from 1991.The question is, If you were setting up a computer room today, what vendor/model of UPS would you choose for a UPS and would you backup the backup ups with a power generator? Is it more cost effective to just have a UPS that can say for example hold power for 4 hours and hope for the best, or to get a UPS that lasts for say 2 hours along with a power generator.Suggestions of Vendor names and contacts who will work and equipment I can get in Ohio would also be a plus. Thanks Guys!Regards, Jim Kenzig http://www.kenzig.com
