Enhancing Security and Performance with HPE ProLiant Gen10 Solutions



In an economy where IT modernization drives performance and cyber crime poses a major threat to a variety of data types, organizations are seeking innovative technologies to increase productivity and safeguard business-critical information. Small and midsize businesses (SMBs) rely on on-premises servers with the right Hybrid IT technologies to ensure end-to-end data protection.

According to a 2016 study by the Ponemon Institute, U.S. companies lose an average of $9.5 Untitled design (3).jpgmillion per cybersecurity breach, an increase of 21% over the previous year. Every day there are 720 million cyber crime breach attempts, and while many business leaders invest in advanced security measures, 60% of SMBs that suffer an attack go out of business within six months.

Traditional operating systems are no longer sufficient to provide the speed and security that modern companies demand. With restrictive budgets and limited IT expertise, SMBs are particularly susceptible to cyber crime, making innovation crucial to their growth and longevity. Today’s organizations need a hybrid IT environment that provides the constant availability and performance of the cloud with the security of on-premises technology down to the hardware level. 


SMBs must invest in Just Right IT solutions to reduce time-to-insight and rapidly respond to evolving industry and business requirements. Digital Transformation is the first step to success.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) is equipping up-and-coming organizations to operate with confidence with the introduction of the world’s most secure industry standard servers. HPE ProLiant Gen10 servers provide a better IT experience, helping users accelerate complex workloads, leverage cloud-based scalability, and safeguard sensitive data without overwhelming their budgets. Announced on June 5th, the Gen10 portfolio is the first of its kind to utilize silicon-based security, which mitigates firmware threats while achieving greater levels of agility and economic flexibility. HPE is the only vendor to offer a Secure Compute Lifecycle by embedding silicon in the firmware. The Silicon Root of Trust creates a digital fingerprint in the silicon to prevent compromised firmware code from executing and recovers proper code automatically, ensuring comprehensive protection throughout manufacturing, distribution, installation, and usage.

These machines are improving IT operations in three key ways: 

ü A better way to drive business results: Gen10 servers help users get the most out of their applications and data, delivering enhanced reliability, performance, and IT automation with an on-premises infrastructure, and empowering companies to create new value instantly and continuously.

ü A better way to secure data: HPE is offering customers a security-defined infrastructure with built-in protection against cyber crime from the core to the intelligent edge to the cloud.

ü A better way to consume IT: Users will benefit from subscription services, or a technical refresh program, to make affordable monthly payments. Greater economic control enables SMBs to dramatically reduce TCO and allocate compute resources to sustain safe, simple, and affordable growth.


Included in this revolutionary portfolio, the HPE ProLiant DL360 Gen10 and HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 are delivering superior performance and security for small offices, home offices, and disparate branch locations.

The DL360 offers dense compute capabilities for multi-workload environments, delivering exceptional flexibility and unmatched scalability. Packed in a dense, 1U rack design, these servers create a 2P secure platform for diverse workloads in space constrained environments.

Expanding on these capabilities, the DL380 is the industry-leading server for multi-workload compute. This secure, resilient 2P 2U system delivers world-class performance and versatility for multiple environments. DL380 containers allow software to run across a hybrid environment, integrating complex processes into a single, secure, and easy-to-manage platform.

HPE ProLiant Gen10 platforms help users build a powerful and reliable IT environment. And by leveraging proactive support and predictive analytics, HPE solutions can help customers quickly diagnose and resolve potential issues, enabling continuous monitoring and reducing downtime.
