"They all suck!" Re: UPS failure modes (was: fire at NAC)

I agree, of course it is ludicrous to think otherwise.

It has always bothered me that we rectify AC power to store it in
batteries, then
re-invert it to power AC servers only for them to rectify it again....

What I mean, of course, is that in a collocation model, where you have
customers bringing in computers, it is not reasonable to mandate that they
use DC power. You'd have no customers. Which, in turn, may be a benefit,
since you wouldn't need the power system in the first place.


Yes, that is in fact a _Model T truck axle_. And I thought I was only
keeping it around as a LART. :slight_smile:
