You may want to look at 4500 series switches if you want a single frame or look at stacking 3750 switches. You could also just use 2960' if you don't have so much traffic you are going to saturate your uplinks.
You must protract the power externally from the device. Normally you put a UPS in front. This protects against outage but also it will toast the UPS rather than your equipment if you get a power hit.
If you look at the case of a larger dual powered switch you really want to run 2 seperate UPS because the UPS itself can fail and sometimes take your power supplies with it. Your other option is to plug one power supply into the city and the other into a UPS. You are protected against power outage and if you get a spike it will kill the UPS and just one of your power supplies. You could then move the other power supply to the city while you get a new ups.
thanks for all your help... I can tell that the 6500's are distribution layer switches... so do you think that the 4500 is a more suitable replacement for the 2980G-A to provide access layer functions to desktops?
