Hybrid Cloud 
With the popularity of the cloud, your customers may be asking you more and more about their cloud options. How can they best utilize the cloud? We recommend utilizing a hybrid cloud approach, extending their on-premise to the cloud and adding built-in hybrid management capabilities with Windows Server 2019. HPE ProLiant Gen10 Servers with Windows Server 2019 offers many new features that bridge on-premises environments with Microsoft Azure Services such as Azure File Sync and Enhanced Active Directory Authentication.  


Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) 
Hyper-converged Infrastructure (HCI) is a growing trend in the server industry embraced by organizations of all shapes and sizes for cost and performance reasons. In hyper-converged deployments, compute, storage, and networking are on the same cluster helping to simplify configuration, reduce cost, and maximize server investments. Running Windows Server 2019 on HPE ProLiant Gen10 Servers gives organizations many new HCI features. For example, Windows Admin Center (WAC) an elegant browser-based HCI remote management interface that includes software-defined network configuration and monitoring and gives users full control over all aspects of their server with no Azure or cloud dependency.
