There's another discussion active here, more or less same subject -
might be interesting for you.
My own server (which uses only about 35Watt) has an APC Back-UPS
CS-500 UPS, connected via USB. Debian compatible by using the apcupsd
package. I get about 45 minutes of runtime before automatic shutdown.
