    I wonder how much you could of saved with a generator ... battery backups are expensive and don't last long. Generators are comparatively cheap, and can last days if you have the fuel supply (especially if natural gas is available). All you need is a battery that will last long enough for the generator to warm up.

    Our work UPS is a bit smaller than that, but powers a dozen network switches, 9 servers, phone system (including all desk phones), Wi-Fi, alarm and fire systems, a few lights, and 11 workstations. Estimated runtime, 32 minutes.

    Linux you need a 17K natural gas power generator. Never worry about power again. Don't spend money on battery is just throwing money away.
