HPE Small Business IT solutions iLO Offer 800.jpgWho knew this would still be going on? Many HPE customers and partners are still facing challenges such as closed offices, inaccessible server rooms, and and/or work-from-home mandates. And like many businesses across the globe, they need to quickly adapt to continue to serve their customers’ needs. If you are an HPE customer or partner (or plan to be), know that we are here to support you, so you can focus on your customers.

Here is one way we are helping. We have made HPE Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) Advanced FREE OF CHARGE for all HPE customers and partners through December 31, 2020. Normally offered at a cost, this server management software enables you to configure, monitor, and update HPE servers (see footnote) seamlessly - from anywhere. Lots of our customers and partners are already leveraging this opportunity to empower administrators to manage their environments in a safe and reliable manner through HPE iLO’s robust remote capabilities via a rich remote server management experience that’s easy to use – and it also provides end-to-end server security. When paired with our FREE HPE iLO Amplifier Pack software, this license provides scale and additional recovery capabilities to support your business continuity.

HPE iLO Advanced has been instrumental in helping customers through past crises as well. For example, J-Tech Enterprises, a Miami-based service provider whose airline customers average between 600 and 1,000 users, was able to remotely access 50 customer sites through HPE’s iLO server management toolset during Hurricane Irma, which struck Florida in 2017. Utilizing HPE iLO Advanced management capabilities, the IT administrator was able to control, configure, shut down and bring up servers as needed from his office – all without having to travel. This enabled the company to save data and prevent potential hardware damage, and it ultimately led to a very nimble recovery after the hurricane passed.
