HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 + PS1810-8G Switch: an Ideal Pairing for SMB!

Xani on ‎07-17-2013 10:19 PM Thursday Willa

Small businesses must constantly find new ways to grow amidst the many challenges they face. This often means they must do more and more with fewer resources. Many SMBs feel they lack the IT resources needed to manage rapid data growth and are concerned with increasing security risks and the challenges of protecting critical business data. Moreover, many SMBs must find a way to do it all on a limited budget. To do it all, they require products that scale up as their businesses grow, and investments that will give great return, while still allowing them to save on operational costs and overhead costs.
