Hp Unveils New Microserver, Proliants For Smbs

BYOD HP officials unveiled the new systems June 11, saying they are simpler to deploy and manage as well as easier to afford, which is important to small businesses that don't have the IT budget or staff of their larger counterparts. The announcement comes as HP gets its annual Discover conference under way in Las Vegas, and a day after company officials unveiled a number of new enterprise PCs . The new servers aim to give SMBssuch as retail stores and medical practicestools to scale their computing capabilities while enabling greater content sharing and collaboration among employees. Noting numbers from AMI, HP officials said that within the next five years, 5.1 million small businesses around the globe will buy their first server. They're going to look for systems that meet their particular needs, according to Mark Potter, senior vice president and general manager of servers for HP. "Small and midsized businesses require innovative server solutions that meet their specific business needs and price points to remain competitive," Potter said in a statement. "These new HP ProLiant servers are easy to use, highly reliable and cost-effective to maintain, enabling our SMB customers to boost business performance, save time and cut costs."

The new MicroServer Generation 8 is still designed to be a solid first server, and is small and quiet enough to be put onto the floor or a desk in an office space. It's aimed at businesses with fewer than 10 employees, according to HP.
