This one has a dual power supply on 2 different UPS systems, one backed 
up by generator power.  It's an old IBM Netfinity (about a PIII, 800) 
and had been around a while before the long uptime started the but the 
funny thing is that it was a closeout special from TigerDirect back when 
they used to do that sort of thing and cost about $800 plus some 3rd 
party RAM and drives.  I got several at the same time and most but not 
all would still run. A PIII is barely worth the trouble as a server 
these days though, so most have been replaced.
