HP ProLiant DL80 Gen9, a server for a cost-conscious SMB.


To be competitive, your SMB customers must overcome many different IT challenges that larger enterprise businesses probably don’t worry about. While we know that all businesses want affordable, easy to use, adaptable IT, for small businesses , these are often not just wanted, but actually required due to reduced IT budgets and/or reduced IT staff.


If your SMB customers are looking for an affordable storage server for capacity applications, we have the perfect solution for them: the HP ProLiant DL80 Gen9 server. Designed with affordable storage, networking and processor stability, and manageability in a 2U server, this server addresses the basic needs of any cost-conscious SMB. Its cost-optimized design features ample storage and I/O scalability for sufficient data back-up and accessibility, up to two Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3 processors, eight DIMM slots of HP DDR4 SmartMemory, and improved ProLiant Gen9 management capabilities to meet essential performance and manageability requirements.
