  My whole computer room currentyl runs from two 5KVA UPSs...The Cray
J90 alone loads one to about 40% and the other to about 25%.  It's
split across the two UPSs for connector availability reasons.

  Smaller systems can pull less power...the YMP-EL family, for
example...but they're nowhere near as fast as the J90.
