I recommend an APC UPS. I'm very pleased with apcupsd,
http://www.apcupsd.com/ It lets you hang multiple machines off one UPS,
and will communicate between them, so they can all shut down gracefully
if need be. It has a set of CGI scripts so you can inspect your UPS
from any web browser you've given permissions to access the web server.

I have a Back-UPS LS 700.
