HP MicroServer Gen9

There doesn't seem to be any new information about the MicroServer Gen9.  Will there be a MicroServer Gen9?  If so, I know you can leak the release date, but where can I go for current information?  Googling seems to point to old news.

Re: HP MicroServer Gen9

Hi ResidentPro,

 

well the mere fact none of the big search engines has indexed anything new for a while now is because we haven't released any market-ready details about it yet. Having said that, I'm sure it's obvious, that regardless we'd like to, unfortunately we can't leak any information here either, but the most I can tell you is that there should be plenty of additional info in a few months.

 

I know it doesn't help much, but at least you'd know why there isn't any info out there yet.

 

Cheers,

Vlad

Re: HP MicroServer Gen9

Hi Vlad,

 

The HP Gen9 servers were released August 2014.  HP still have no announcement on the HP Gen9 Microserver release date.  What many people in the community want at this stage is not just a leaked  infomration on the HP MicroServer Gen9 release date but the answer to this question:

 

Will HP be releasing a Gen9 version of the MicroServer?

 

The answer to this question will inticipate if we:

 

a) keep waiting for HP to release the product

b) look for an alternative solution.

 

I am in need for a new home server to replace my current Gen8 MicroServer, one that supports up to 32GB of memory.  The HP MicroServer is a great fit as it provides iLO management - hopefully if HP do release a new version it will come with 32GB of memory support as this is currently a requirement by many people in the community.

 

Regards,

Clint

Any news you could possibly give me? Thanks.

If hp gen9 microserver is still a year away I will give it a miss, but if gen9 microserver is just around the corner then I will happily wait and purchase the gen9 as soon at it hits the shelves.

Re: HP MicroServer Gen9

Hello @liuhuan

 

I am excited and happy you are a loyal HP customer.  I have checked with my colleges and there is no information as of yet about the release of the HP MicroServer Gen9 series.  Typically, HP does not announce product release dates in advance, because HP does not want to set customers' expectations and then for some unforeseen reason not be able to deliver a product on the promised date. 

 

There may have been leaks from third party sites on the release of the HP MicroServer Gen9 series but HP does not comment on third party site as it is not know where the information was originated.  As said before as soon as the information is made public, we are happy to answer any questions that customers may have about the HP MicroServer Gen9 series. 

 

I recommend visiting the HP Filter News Results that gives information on HP products that are available for customers like New Advisory, Press kits, and Press releases.  I do sincerely apologize for not having any more information for you at this time.

I am an HP employee in the ISS, Storage and Networking group, and I love helping our customers. If my post helps you, please mark it as an Accepted Solution. If you need further insight into HP Solutions, please send me a private message or contact an HP Solutions Expert.

Re: HP MicroServer Gen9

HP doesn't care about customers.....

downloading a simple BIOS/Firmaware Update is not possible anymore, because you need to link the Products-Warranty with your unique HP Account...

Warranty status has to be Active and you need a "HP Service Agreement ID (SAID) *" and a "Support Account Reference (SAR) *" and a "HP Support Center user ID" to gain access to entitled features including Support Case Manager.

HP - You! are just loosing a loyal customer :(

Any update about the release of HP MicroServer Gen9?

We are loyal to HP, therefore HP should be looking after the customers, this is very simple question, It's not a rocket science.

I have two HP MicroServer Gen8 and I need to move to Gen 9?

Please respond!!!

Re: HP MicroServer Gen9

Look at the name above the blog -> HP Enterprise.  If any of you are with a true "Enterprise" or large quanty buyer, you would probably already know the answer to the question.  But most are SMB individuals who HPE knows are their secondary market.  They keep the big boys happy, and if there is something left over that they can make money off of without giving too much away, then they will toss it to the SMB.

If above said HP-SMB then you would have a chance deserving of getting an answer. 

And no I am not a loyal HP SMB, I am an pragmatic SMB that has used HP for years when they make a good product, but I leave them as often as they screw me, its a relationship that works like most other business relationships.

And to borrow from the matrix, I will tell you how this will work out. 

HP will continue to adhear to "Enterprise" standards and that includes treatment of any individual who is using the equipment, you want support, you give us $$$. No free handouts until you prove that we need you more than you need us.  

And that is a good thing for us, because if HP focuses on making themselve efficient, then they will have more resources to spend on bringing Enterprise class items to the SMB market place.  We already know from this thread that HPE has employees who care and that is all we can ask for right now.
