HPE SMB Solutions for Storage and Backup with Windows Server 2016 help maintain momentum

We've said it before and it hasn't changed… your small and midsize business (SMB) customers need IT solutions that they can trust to keep their businesses moving at full speed. Downtime can mean a loss of business (and money) for companies of all sizes, but this can be extremely detrimental to a SMB! If your SMB customers are currently relying on solutions that include laptops, PCs, or online cloud software to share and store critical data, they could be headed for unexpected downtime… BUT you can help turn this around… talk to them about upgrading their IT infrastructure to server computing and explain the benefits it can provide.

To help with this process, HPE has created new SMB solutions for storage and backup.


The solutions start with HPE ProLiant servers, powered by Intel® Xeon® processors and optimized and validated to run Windows Server 2016. With features such as centralized storage and security, data protection, 24/7 availability, and optional HPE Secure Encryption,1 HPE SMB Solutions for Storage and Backup with Windows Server 2016 can help your SMB customers protect their business, increase efficiency and productivity, and save time and money.

These HPE SMB Solutions are perfect for SMBs and remote office/branch offices (ROBO) that are small enough to still be running on networked PCs, notebooks, or mobile devices (making them particularly vulnerable to computer loss/theft/crash).

HPE ProLiant Gen10 servers help SMBs protect their businesses with automated only data backup, virus protection, and optional HPE Secure Encryption. When you add Windows Server 2016 to the mix, your customers get even more protection thanks to security features such as: Just in Time and Just-Enough Administration, Shielded Virtual Machines, Windows Defender, Trusted/Secure Boot, and Host Guardian Services.

Security is not the only benefit your customers get from HPE SMB Solutions for Storage and Backup with Windows Server 2016. These solutions can also help your customers increase productivity and enhance efficiency by making files, emails, and cloud operation tools accessible from any device, improving application deployment and simplifying server operations with Windows Server containers and Windows Hyper-V Containers, and optimizing their server performance with HPE Intelligent System Tuning (HPE IST).

And, to top it all off, these solutions help your customers save time and money by reducing hardware costs, simplifying IT management tasks, improving infrastructure agility, and increasing deployment flexibility.
