HPE Gen9 Servers

Your SMB customers need your help to close the gap between their current server infrastructure and today’s business demands.  IT solutions for the new style of business are driven by big data & analytics, cloud, mobility and security, but legacy servers simply don’t have sufficient power, performance and flexibility to support these initiatives.  It’s time for your customers to transform their infrastructure from a cost centre to a service differentiator – replacing siloed, slow and inefficient physical infrastructure with pools of IT resources that are aligned to business goals - driving efficiencies, speed and business value. 

The latest generation of Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Gen9 servers has been designed to help optimise the customer’s business, not to optimise the server, which is still the case with other vendor solutions.  This approach has seen HPE cement their position as #1 in the server market - maintaining a hefty lead over their main rivals, according to research firm Gartner’s latest market-share numbers.
