Will my current UPS software monitor my new Eaton UPS?
When a data center goes down and then back up during a power outage without a managed shut down, it doesn't come up nicely. Storage arrays initialize after servers that try to mount their shares, while some servers boot without access to DNS servers that are also booting and thus have other problems. Although the outage was short, it can take hours to get everything back online. In addition, data corruption is a serious concern.
