Informed Purchasing Decisions: HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 v2 Server North America SmartBuys are Smart


If you are in North America and need to purchase a HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 v2, have you considered looking at our SmartBuys?  A SmartBuy is a pre-configured server that HP has packaged together and discounted to make your purchasing decision easier. 


The SmartBuy program is an extensive US based program with 90+ SmartBuy server configurations and 75 SmartBuy options available (memory, hard drives, processors, software).




Where can you find details about SmartBuys?  Look at the NA QuickSpecs for the HP ProLiant server of your choice.  In this chart below, the ML350e Gen8 v2 will show you a choice of three SKU’s.  SmartBuys change – so keep your eye out for these bargains.  Also ask your distributor or channel partner.
