The HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 v2 was Named one of SmallBizWindows’ Servers of the Year 2014!



By Lucy Ellis

WW Product Marketing Manager at Hewlett-Packard



How do you choose the ideal server for your small and mid-sized business customer’s needs? Some SMB resellers may pick the server based solely on their personal experiences, while others will often research and consider server reviews written by different organizations. One place SMB resellers can get reviews and information is AbsolutelyWindows’ SmallBizWindows site, a blog resource allowing discussions and reviews of products important to the SMB space in Windows- and Microsoft- based computing.


Recently, SmallBizWindows announced their Servers of the Year 2014 and the HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 v2 was among several HP ProLiant Gen8 servers in this category! SmallBizWindows’ review of the ML350e Gen8 v2 stated, “We standardized on the ProLiant ML350 a couple of years ago, and we have never regretted the decision. The ML350 servers are rock solid, have bulletproof performance, and give our clients’ computing environments the reliability they expect from their servers.”


We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!





The HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 v2 server provides essential performance and features, and delivers exceptional value, making it ideal for businesses with a tight budget. This server allows businesses to scale and grow as needed with support for up to two processors, 12 DIMM slots, 16 small form factor (SFF) or 8 large form factor (LFF) drives, 6PCIe slots and 8 USB ports. Accommodating changing business needs is easier with the ML350e Gen8 v2 with its designed-in flexibility for adding a second processor, additional hard drives, and more memory as needed.


To give your customer a complete server solution, we recommend pairing the ML350e Gen8 v2 with Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials. Windows Server 2012 Essentials is ideal for up to 25 users and up to 50 devices, and includes a single virtual instance. Essentials is well suited for small and midsize businesses growing into their virtualized private and hybrid cloud environments. In addition, Essentials can be enabled as a role in Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter and Standard editions.
