Eaton [1], a global technology leader in electrical products and long
time Debian partner, has donated several large-capacity uninterruptible
power supplies (UPSs) and intelligent power distribution units (PDUs)
for Debian's core infrastructure located in Darmstadt, Germany and
Vienna, Austria.

"Not only do we, at Eaton, strongly back the principle of freely
available open source software, we are also finding that our customers
increasingly prefer to work with open source packages, especially with
Linux and related systems," said Arnaud Quette, Eaton Opensource
Solutions Lead and Debian Developer.

"Most Debian porter machines and Debian auto-builder machines are not
equipped with out of band management access or remote power control.
Eaton's donation gives us this capability, significantly improving our
ability to operate our infrastructure efficiently and effectively,
without having to disturb the staff of our hosting partners. We are very
appreciative of this generous donation," said Martin Zobel-Helas, member
of the Debian System Administration team.
