This is just as much a case of matching equipment to application

Every time I've seen a standby generator sized for a computer data
center the 'continuous run' figure was used for the maximum loading.
Data center loading is generally fairly well known, if you have a
N KW UPS, it's known to draw N + M KW on input at full load, and the
generator needs to be able to supply N + M for continuous run.

Overrun amounts are _very_ limited.  Typically < 30 minutes @10%
over, and < 5 minutes @20% over.  I don't think I've ever seen one
with a rating for more than 20% over.  Even a bean counter won't
expect a power outage to be over in 30 minutes.
