Too bad a substantial amount of equipment doesn't allow for
redundant plugins.  The ability to plug { servers | routers |
whatever } into two totally separate power feeds is nice.

Anyone for building a rackmount transfer switch for two inputs?
Assuming it didn't fail (!) -- would the economies of scale work
for or against it compared to big transfer switches?  Between
dealing with _much_ smaller current levels and the opportunity
for mass production, what are the chances of something like this
I'm not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for, but:

List price is between $359 and $559, depending on if you want network management and how many outputs.
