    Hi, when choosing a UPS What type of specifications do you look for? I’ve seen different models of ups systems and various devices connected to them. I can imagine the more you have connected, the more voltage or wattage you need. And I know u also have to consider how long the ups system will run if you lose power. What should you look for in an UPS as far as the voltage, wattage, and the length of the ups power?

      I don’t think you need more voltage than 110 or 230 depending on your country. Do you?
      The wattage should be enough to power all connected devices. The IT manager tells what devices to connect.
      The lenght of the time it should give power is a requirement given by the IT manager.

      It’s quite different for your home network or for a Google or Microsoft or Amazon or Facebook owned data center with 5,000 processors and 20,000 disks or so. You wouldn’t like your gmail not working because such a data center is down.
