Yeah, the 1KVA range is definitely a home-environment UPS. There's no
point putting them in a datacenter -- it's just not cost-effective. You
end up with fifteen frames filled with 1KVA UPSen.

Oh hell yes. One machine in that class can probably over-draw an 1100VA
UPS. I wouldn't put even a single machine in that class on anything
less than a 2KVA UPS.
