Our system as provided came with an Intel Core i3-3220T CPU running at 2.8 GHz, 8 GB of memory and two 2TB disk drives. Internal drive bays accommodate up to four large form factor disk drives. The system also includes an embedded Smart Array B120i disk controller for enhanced hardware-assisted RAID.

HP Gen8 MicroServer - Figure 1 There is no OS and the server is stock from the box - but I notice that when the card is in, there is nothing output from either the HDMI or onboard VGA. HDMI I can understand - but but doesn't onboard VGA always work? If I pull the card out again, the onboard VGA works. Do I need to remove the card until Windows is installed and use the onboard VGA?

HP Unveils New MicroServer, ProLiants for SMBs

It's aimed at businesses with fewer than 10 employees, according to HP. The system makes it easy to store, secure and share information from a central location, enhancing collaboration and content sharing among employees. With Microsoft's Windows Server 2012 Essentials offerings, the data and applications on the server can be accessed remotely from almost any Internet-connected device. The MicroServer Gen8 also takes advantage of HP's ProLiant Gen8 server features and its ProActive Insight architecture, which helps simplify installation and maintenance via HP's Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) Management Engine and Intelligent Provision capabilities, which are embedded in each server. Through iLO Essentials, businesses can remotely manage the server, while HP ActiveHealth lets them continuously monitor the system's performance. According to HP, ActiveHealth not only monitors the health of the server but also the power consumption. HP Smart Update lets users make application updates faster. HP also gives users the option of integrating the company's stackable PS1810-8G managed networking switch, giving SMBs a converged infrastructure offering that automatically discovers, monitors and speeds up the connectivity performance of both the compute and networking components. The server is powered by an Intel Celeron or Pentium processor and offers up to 16GB of memory. The PS1210-8G switch, through support for bonding or link aggregation of two Ethernet interfaces, doubles the data speeds of the previous generation of MicroServers.
