OEM Doubles Revenues after Switching from White Box to HPE

Do you use white box servers in your solutions to reduce costs?  Are distribution and support limitations inhibiting business growth?  Choosing the right technology partner can make all the difference. Just ask HPE OEM MBX Systems.  They doubled sales in a year by joining the HPE OEM program and standardizing on ProLiant servers.

MBX delivers custom-configured appliances for ISVs and service providers.  MBX takes care of system integration, test and optimization efforts, so their customers can focus on developing software and enhancing their intellectual property.  The company originally relied on white box servers from vendors like Supermicro, but quickly realized they needed a Tier-1 supplier to take sales to the next level.

As Chris Tucker, Vice President for Customer Engagement for MBX Systems, explains, “From platform engineering, custom branding, and manufacturing to certifications, global inventory management, and warranty support, we want to be there for our customers every step of the way.”

The HPE OEM program offers global distribution and support services, and unique capabilities like cross-border warranties that make it easy for MBX to serve international markets and meet the needs of large multinational customers. “When one of our customers is evaluating global expansion, we don’t want to have to evaluate whether a hardware platform is certified for certain European or Asian markets,” explains Tucker. “HPE offers approved platforms throughout the world backed by strong service and maintenance programs.”

The results speak for themselves.  In their first year as an HPE OEM, MBX increased revenues for their custom server appliance business by 106%.
