Act now: Upgrade from Windows Server 2008 with simple HPE SMB solutions that improve productivity


From my previous blog you learned how you can leverage simple solutions that have been created to help companies keep their businesses running. Today I want to share with you some key solutions that will help improve productivity. 

 HPE SMB Solutions to improve productivity.jpgYou already know that end of support for Windows Server 2008 is happening soon; and perhaps you are looking for that right solution that you can trust.  For a start, HPE Small Business Solutions have been lab tested and validated to accomplish the workload objectives outlined in all these use cases.  HPE has simplified the configurations so that you can easily select what you need to run your business size and they are specially priced for affordability.  On top of this, these solutions are built on security that protects, detects, and recovers – forming the strongest defence for your server infrastructure.  Plus you can also take advantage of the modern security, management and performance features of Windows Server 2016, providing even greater peace of mind.

Improving productivity is a major goal for many businesses; the more productive the business is, the more money they can bring in.  HPE and Microsoft have worked together for over 30 years to combine our respective strengths and deliver innovative technologies, services, and support that can help businesses increase productivity. 
These Small Business Solutions are built to keep IT simple and provide SMBs the tools they need to thrive.
