Why is the new HPE ProLiant DL20 Gen9 Server a great asset for my SMB?

On November 11th, Hewlett Packard Enterprise announced new end-to-end solutions which would provide small and midsize businesses (SMBs) with the tools they need to increase productivity, reduce costs, and grow the business. Part of this announcement included the introduction of the HPE ProLiant DL20 Gen9 server. This dense and compact server, the latest edition to HPE’s one processor rack family of Gen9 servers, is powered by Intel® Pentium®, Core i3 and E3-1200v5 processors and provides a unique blend of enterprise-class capabilities. The DL20 Gen9 was engineered specifically for SMBs, and features a short-depth chassis, 15.05 inches, which is ideal for space constrained environments. In addition, this server provides ultimate mobility, and has the best entry level price point in the HPE ProLiant rack family—great for SMBs!
