We’ve shown you how to pick the best backup battery for your computer, but what about configuring it and ensuring your computer shuts down gracefully and safely in the face of power surges, outages, and other undesirable power states? Read on as we show you how to configure a UPS and explain why each feature matters.
I really need to get one of these. How is the software for linux? Are there some brands that would be a better option, etc?
There are two versions of the software, from CyberPower at least, you can use with Linux, the Linux desktop/lightweight version and the Business Edition we mentioned at the end. The Linux desktop version is pretty spartan with no GUI, so even if you don't need all the features of the Business Edition you might as well install that one so you get a nice control panel that lets you easily check in on things.
