Another option could be to place this machine on a dedicated UPS of its
own with a larger battery to ensure that it stays up even after your
site UPS fails.  APC's web page has a page that can suggest a UPS based
on server type and uptime requirements.  If it's a small enough server,
you can get 24 hours out of a $1500 1KVA UPS.
