Eaton 9130 UPS feedback

Are these UPS units going inside the racks? Would it not be better to do
something in the power room with an inverter on the circuits that feed the
racks, such as a large Outback unit with sufficient battery capacity?

With one device acting as your UPS you'd have only one point of failure
(that may be a plus or minus), only one set of batteries to worry about,
and those inverters are very well made.

They have 120v and 240v units. There are other brands you could use but my
experience with various brands is that Outback is the best in their class.
