SMBs get IT independence with solutions from HP and Microsoft

Xani on ‎07-04-2014 09:00 AM Thursday Willa

HP and Microsoft bring together the world’s leading server hardware and software to give small and medium-sized businesses flexible, affordable, easy-to-use solutions, designed and priced just for them, giving them the freedom to focus on running their business, not managing their IT.


As strategic partners and industry leaders for nearly 30 years, HP and Microsoft combine the intelligence of HP ProLiant Gen8—the world’s most self-sufficient servers—with the virtualization and scalability of Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2. Together, their integrated hardware and software solutions automate their IT lifecycle, accelerate workloads, optimize energy, and help assure availability to deliver the applications needed today and leverage the cloud-based models of the future.


HP ProLiant Gen8 Servers

Responding to growing customer demands and evolving business needs can often be challenging for SMBs due to limited financial and human resources. To help, the HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 provides simplified setup, management, and maintenance, with innovative HP Smart Technologies. In addition, it offers SMBs centralized, anywhere, anytime data access, helping employees boost productivity and collaboration through data sharing. And the cherry on top? It is quiet enough to sit right on a desk!


The HP ProLiant DL320e Gen8 v2 and ML310e Gen8 v2 also offer cost-optimized solutions for micro and SMB clients. These servers provide the reliability, flexibility, and scalability needed to accommodate current and future business needs.




Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials

Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials is a flexible, affordable, easy-to-use server solution designed and priced for small businesses. The Essentials edition is an ideal first server that helps reduce costs and increase productivity, and can also be used as a primary server in a multi-server environment for small businesses. Small businesses are able to protect, centralize, organize, and access their applications and data from almost anywhere, using virtually any device with Windows Server 2012 Essentials.


HP Just Right IT

No matter what stage of business an SMB is in, they need to be free to focus on future innovations and HP has designed the Just Right IT program to grant them that freedom. With networking, storage, servers, services, printing, scanning, and computing solutions tailored to fit SMB’s needs at each stage in their company’s development.

  • Small business solutions: Whether the SMB needs basic technologies to launch their business, or are poised to expand into new territories, HP JRIT offers end-to-end technology solutions
