How Many Problems Can You Solve with HPE Hardware and ClearOS?


Learn about the server-related IT challenges and benefits the new ClearOS and HPE partnership helps small businesses solve.

I welcome Michael Proper, ClearCenter CEO, to our blogging community and am excited to have him tell the HPE and ClearOS IT management and server story.

ClearOS_June26.jpgIf you run a small IT shop, you know how expensive and time consuming it gets to buy, deploy and maintain an assortment of hardware and software products to run all of the server-related resources for your users.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise and ClearOS have announced a new partnership making it easier than ever for small businesses to save money and consolidate IT resources—and then manage them from one console. ClearOS is a flexible IT solution that offers simplicity, affordability and security without compromise.

ClearOS features many layers including the ClearOS Server Layer and a wide selection of ClearOS Marketplace apps designed to replace multiple hardware and software solutions from various vendors with just one server running ClearOS.

What could you do right now using the ClearOS Server Layer running on an HPE ProLiant server?

A lot! Deploy databases, directory services, FTP, file sharing, file scanning, print servers, and more via ClearOS Marketplace apps. Use the Kopano app for a full email, communication, web meetings, and collaboration suite. Connect to Hybrid cloud-based elements like Google Apps for authentication or Dropbox for cloud storage to augment your on-premises infrastructure. You can even deploy a private cloud storage solution like ownCloud.

ClearOS is easy to test on HPE hardware. Try it yourself then calculate how many problems you could solve and how much money you could save on licensing, maintenance and support compared to your current deploymen

Thanks Tim, I’m honored to be part of the community. The combination of HPE ProLiant hardware and ClearOS is an incredibly powerful, yet simple tool that is changing how IT gets deployed and managed.

ClearOS gives HPE customers the security, freedom, and flexibility to protect and manage an entire IT environment on one HPE ProLiant server, or deploy individual server, network, or gateway applications needed to fill gaps in an existing infrastructure.

I’m looking forward to future discussions that will show how this new model offers unique benefits to HPE partners, resellers, service providers and customers.
