I don't know about the G5. We know there are issues with the ML350 G6. See thread below.

No. batteries can't hold up a ML350 G5. You could use many a 3000VA with extra batteries.

Re: APC smart UPS 1000va

A Smart UPS 1000 may be good enough for the 800 watt power supply in this server, but you need to make sure it isn't the lower end, non enterprise class, UPS. If it is a true Smart UPS, then it should work fine with the power factor correction power supplies in this server.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..

Thank you for your opinions, maybe I increase it to Smart-ups 1500va to balance the power supply.

Let's step back. What is your goal in using a UPS? Do you need a specific run-time?

For an APC SmartUPS 3000

you can expect a runtime of 34 minutes with a load of 800 watts (when the batteries are new).

YMMV
