Thanks, Ted.
This would solve power feed problem. Unfortunately we have similar situation with the switches. Failure of one will bring half of the servers down. It is understood that changing/adjusting hardware infrastructure can solve the problem. Unfortunately this is not under my control. So I am trying to explore possible options (I understand that there is no currently available solution out of the box) within existing conditions.

  If you have 5 ZK servers, put 3 on one power source and give one of them
the UPS.  Then give put the other 2 on the second power source.  If power
source A fails, you keep 2+1 servers and if power source B fails, you keep

If you can stand manual intervention during an emergency, you might be able
to devise a recovery scenario.  You can put 3 and 2 on A and B as above
without a UPS.  If B fails, you are fine.  If A fails, you can go in and
reconfigure the remaining nodes to only consider themselves as the quorum.
  This is not a good plan in general because ZK is reliable enough that
people forget about it.  That means it won't be top of mind in a disaster

Three power sources obviously would solve the problem. Unfortunately at
this moment it does not seem to be feasible (we will need to rebuild the
whole existing infrastructure).
