Servers & Systems: The Right Compute

Innovative 4-core processor micro server offers optimized compute for new businesses

Whether you are building a new business, buying an existing business, or entering into a franchise arrangement, being your own boss can be the realization of a lifelong dream.

Optimized compute.jpgYou’ve studied your options in terms of your own skills, experience and interests. You have considered the current and anticipated markets for your product or service, and carefully evaluated the strengths and weaknesses of your competitors. Your research has helped you to create a compelling business plan that facilitated obtaining necessary financing. Today’s THE day. You are finally ready to make the break from working 9-5 for someone else.

Your first months in the driver’s seat can be a most exciting time of life, when adrenalin flows and opportunities seem limitless. Those visions of success are empowering, but you know in your bones that dreaming alone doesn’t make for success. Putting in long hours, making choices as to how to focus your finances and energies, and personal sacrifices that can impact your family life, are all part of the mix when venturing out on your own.

Big question: How do I manage my business when it comes to IT?

A critical decision before you hang out your “Open for Business” sign is determining how you will manage your business from an IT perspective. Creating the all-important customer experience, building and tracking your sales funnel, e-mail, accounting, payroll, and day-to-day office operations are just a few of the tasks that will need to be handled by an IT solution that helps you to review, fine tune and manage all aspects of your business. Unless IT management is your career, you will soon learn that finding a technology solution that solves all of your business challenges is a daunting exercise. There are probably a hundred or more products out there that claim to be the answer to all of your IT prayers. But there is a clear leader, the HPE ProLiant MicroServer Gen10. Designed and priced for start-ups and professional users alike, this micro server offers optimized compute for businesses just starting out, or those with smaller IT budgets. Now available with a quad core AMD Opteron™ X3418 processor, it’s a perfect server for offices with up to 25 staff members. 32 GB of storage gives this compact workhorse 2x more capacity than previous generation servers. Plus, utilizing the AMD®[1] accelerated processing unit (APU) with graphics cores embedded greatly improves graphic software performance. Its whisper-quiet operation and cool design suits a smaller office environment, without being intrusive. And low acquisition costs, fast setup, and ease of use make it a winner for those shops where there is not a dedicated IT resource.

You can choose ClearOS from HPE as your server operating system at no additional cost. Just pay for applications and services as you use them. ClearOS, an operating system with an intuitive web-based GUI, was inspired by the simplicity and ease-of-use of the smartphone. It features a built-in application marketplace, allowing you to customize your fully functional server with just a few mouse clicks, and rapidly build an IT solution that’s just right for the precise needs of your business—and budget.
