Small, quiet, stylish and powerful – CRN’s take on the new HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8

Last week CRN published Edward J. Correia’s review of the HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 and recommended the new Server for small organizations and departments.



The HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 is a small, quiet, and uniquely designed server that is ideal as a first server solution for micro and small businesses.  With server class performance in a form factor that is easy to use and service, it helps micro and small businesses drive down their expenses while improving productivity, efficiency, and security. And best of all, there is no need to have a server room.



My favorite quotes from the CRN Review include:



“…[CRN] found it to be a sturdy appliance that performed well beyond its $449 starting price.”


“The first thing resellers are likely to notice are improvements to serviceability.”


 “The ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 now includes support for iLO 4, the company's Integrated Lights-Out embedded management engine, which makes it possible for service providers to remotely monitor, manage and configure the server. It also allows remote admins to mount media, install software and reboot, even if the machine is otherwise not responding to input.”


“For its versatility of pricing and configuration, and the new ability to be remotely managed, the Test Center recommends HP's latest ProLiant MicroServer for small organizations and departments.”
