Get greater IT efficiency with Windows Server 2019 and HPE ProLiant Gen10 Servers

Running outdated servers and server operating systems can cost organizations time and money. But, you can easily improve your IT efficiencies, and ultimately save time and money, by migrating to current generations, such as Windows Server 2019 on HPE ProLiant Gen10 Servers.


Think about this… organizations that are still running Windows Server 2008 are most likely running it on a server that is more than 10 years old! Older servers carry an increased risk of component failures simply due to their age… 10 year old hardware and software is simply no longer at the pinnacle of reliability.


AND, these legacy IT environments can be really expensive to maintain! This is because the systems tend to be a lot slower… so they will typically require more servers and processor cores to perform a given task or workload… more servers = more complexity & higher costs!


HPE ProLiant Servers have changed a lot throughout the generations in providing improvements in performance and efficiencies, as well as increasing storage and security. Did you know that when comparing a HPE ProLiant Gen10 server to the previous generation, Gen9, you can see up to a 27% increase in performance?  In addition, internal storage capacities are up to 58% larger2 and memory bandwidth is increased by 66%3... more storage and bandwidth allows more capacities for productivity in handling customer demands.


When replacing older servers with new servers, many organizations will consolidate their servers to increase their utilization rates and overall efficiency. In fact, when transitioning to HPE ProLiant Gen10 servers from an equivalent HPE ProLiant G7 model, consolidation ratios are in the area of 10:14 due to increased computing power and drastically higher storage capacity and memory - the ROI is very attractive!


And, HPE ProLiant Gen10 servers are touted by Infusion Points as the “World’s most secure industry standard servers”5. Thanks to security features such as Silicon Root of Trust, you can rest assured knowing your organization has the utmost IT security.


Upgrading to a new IT infrastructure can be a valuable proposition for any organization!
