Servers & Systems: The Right Compute

Now is the time to upgrade IT: Get exceptional value and performance, plus favorable financing

You got to where you are by going left when everyone else went right. Right now is the perfect time to upgrade your IT so you’re in a better position to compete as the market heats back up—with a server that gives you better performance, value, and flexible financing terms to help you thrive in the new normal.

You’re a survivor. You didn’t get where you are today by following the crowd. You got here by going left when everyone else went right. Whether you’re fighting to save your business day by day, or if you’re one of the lucky ones trying to best position yourself for future success as the economy heats back up, it’s time to carefully lay your foundation for success.

Small Business IT solutions.400.jpgNo matter what’s happening to the economy, you still need the latest technologies to really excel—and that may be even more true when the going gets rough. If right now doesn’t seem like the right time to upgrade your server, maybe it’s time to think again. A new server can give you the right balance of price and performance to really tip the equation in your favor. You can increase not only performance, but also responsiveness, efficiency, productivity, and your ability to move quickly to meet customer and employee demands.

  • If you’re supporting remote workers, you need a server that can support virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).
  • If you’re giving customers more online ordering options, you need to offer a seamless app-enabled user experience.
  • If you’re moving more applications to the cloud, you need to be sure your on-premises server is hybrid cloud ready.
  • If you’re downsizing your office, you could use a smaller server that still gives you the performance and capacity you need.
  • If you’re having cash flow issues, you may want to purchase IT with monthly payments—preferably as low as possible.

2 great options for SMBs

If any of the above apply to you, an HPE ProLiant ML110 or ML350 Gen10 Server may be just the right fit. Both of these servers have been recently refreshed with Intel’s latest 2nd generation  Xeon Scalable processors for increased performance and industry-leading frequency at an exceptional value, just like the HPE ProLiant DL360 and DL380 Gen10 Servers in February 2020. (See this blog post: HPE releases servers with Intel’s latest 2nd-generation Xeon® Scalable processors.) As tower servers, they can be placed anywhere, with no rack or dedicated space required. Plus, they are both highly energy efficient.

The HPE ProLiant ML350 Gen10 Server helps you transform to a digital business with more agility and within a limited IT budget. It’s a secure dual-socket tower server with the performance, expandability, and proven reliability that make it the choice for small and midsize businesses (SMBs), remote offices of larger businesses, and enterprise data centers. It’s been redesigned with a shorter, rackable form factor with multiple upgrade options giving you flexibility to expand as your business needs grow. Other benefits include:

  • More compute, memory, storage, and PCIe expansion capability than the ML110
  • Porous bezel design that keeps air flowing through the chassis
  • Modular design to allow different storage configurations, including LFF 3.5" drives
  • Great labelling with basic map instructions that most white-box server makers often overlook
  • Air baffle systems to keep the server cool even if the side panel is removed
  • Two fans to keep the CPU and memory cool by pulling air over the heatsinks
  • GPUs that can be outfitted in this server for deep learning and AI tasks
  • Support for up to 8 Non-Volatile Memory (NVMe) SSDs for a maximum of 32 TB.
