HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 receives Server of the Year award from PC Pro!


We are excited to announce (and not at all surprised) that the HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 has received the title of “Server of the Year” from PC Pro Magazine. “HP has sharpened its focus on SMBs recently, with a range of affordable entry-level server systems.” Dave Mitchell of PC Pro writes in the HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 Review.


The MicroServer Gen8 is a small, quiet, and stylishly designed server that is ideal as a first server solution for small businesses. With an easy-to-use and service form factor, it can help your SMB customers drive down their expenses while improving productivity, efficiency, and security. 


In his review, Dave is impressed by the MicroServer Gen8’s build quality, internal access, and its noise and power specs, and states it is a fine candidate for virtualization testing. “However, the two features that really stand out are its remote-management and OS-deployment tools.” he explains. “The original MicroServer supported HP’s optional RAC (remote access card), but this one comes with the standard iLO4 chip found on higher-end ProLiants. This provides a dedicated network port at the rear and a web interface that delivers masses of data to every system component, plus HP’s Intelligent Provisioning makes OS installation a breeze.”


Not only does iLO4 provide instant access to innovations such as Intelligent Provisioning for quick and simple installation and setup, the MicroServer Gen8 offers users instant out-of-box server set up and deployment so they can start using their new system as quickly as possible. In addition, the MicroServer Gen8 has tool-less access to hard drives, memory, and a PCIe slot (for simple installation or upgrade) and two up-front USB ports that allow for easy deployment.
