Windows Server 2012 Essentials is an ideal server for small businesses providing a powerful, flexible solution that helps protect your business data, while allowing you to access the information you need from virtually anywhere using almost any device. The Windows Server 2012 Essentials edition uses per server licensing, and has a max of two processors, twenty-five users, and no CALs. Although it cannot be used as a virtualization host, Essentials can be virtualized.

 

If you have a small business and want to be able to protect data, organize and access business information from virtually anywhere using almost any device, and access cloud services the Windows Server 2012 Essentials is an ideal server solution for you!

Now that you know a bit about Windows Server 2012 Essentials, you may be wondering which servers pair best with Essentials. There are two ProLiant servers that I recommend using with Essentials, HP ProLiant ML310e Gen8 and HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 Servers.

First, we will look at the HP ProLiant ML310e Gen8 Server. The ML310e Gen8 supports the latest Intel Xeon E3 series quad-core processors and delivers the availability and expansion needed to accommodate your changing business needs. The single processor server with DDR3 memory, operating at up to 1600MHz, gives you better system performance and a higher memory capacity of 32GB. The ML310e Gen8 also offers PCIe Gen3 support for a reduced, efficient, power supply.

 

The ENERGY STAR compliant configurations of the ML310e Gen8 illustrate HP’s commitment to helping customers conserve energy and save money. Built for efficiency, the HP ProLiant ML310e Gen8 Server reduces unnecessary fan power by utilizing the first 3D array of temperature sensors. This helps precisely control server fans to direct cooling and reduce your energy costs. In addition, HP SmartMemory prevents data loss and downtime with enhanced error handling while improving workload performance and power efficiency.

 

The HP ProLiant ML310e Gen8 Server’s features allow you to unlock the infrastructure’s potential with HP’s easy to use integrated management and support, give you continuous data protection, and offer flexible options to meet changing business needs.

 

The next ProLiant server I recommend pairing with Windows Server 2012 Essentials is the HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 Server. The ML350e Gen8 Server is a dual processor tower platform built on the latest Intel Xeon E5-2400 processors to create unique system architecture. This unique architecture and flexible deployment options allow your business to scale as needed so you can optimize you IT spending dollars. The ML350e Gen8 provides you the industry’s most powerful embedded management technology, with HP integrated Lights-Out 4 (iLO4), which allows you to manage your servers anytime from anywhere.

 

The HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 offers you a true 2P server that is optimized for price performance. It has unprecedented performance and technology with the Intel Xeon E5-2400 processor and integrated DD3 memory architecture that supports both Registered and Unbuffered memory. This design provides you with low-cost expansion capabilities as your business grows. It also gives you the flexibility of adding a second processor, additional hard drive space, more memory and more storage. This means you have a lower upfront investment, while still allowing for growth in the future.
