The HP Smart Buy program offers mainstream business solutions at competitive prices with amazing savings, excellent availability, and superior HP quality. It includes 90+ Smart Buy server configurations and 74 Smart Buy options available (memory, hard drives, processors, software).

 

HP ProLiant Smart Buy Benefits

ProLiant Smart Buys benefit you and your SMB customers in many different ways. HP has spent years gathering knowledge and listening to the wants and needs of SMB customers. This information was then used to help design pre-configured Smart Buy servers, which are then offered at a discounted price tag.

 

When working with your customers to create their ideal server solution, start with a pre-configured Smart Buy ProLiant server, and then add features and Smart Buy options to fit their specific needs. Smart Buy options may include HP qualified memory and hard drives,  industry leading Insight Control management software as well  as Care Packs to extend or expand support.

 

**Please note, outside of NA, HP has similar programs called Promotions, Top Values, and Golden Offers

Why did we choose the ML350e Gen8 v2 as our Smart Buy example? Simply put, we think this is a great server for your SMB customers! The HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 v2 server delivers exceptional value in a less than 24-inch chassis depth, great for businesses with limited budgets and limited space. Designed as a dual-socket tower server, it provides essential performance and features with great configuration flexibility and expandability.

 

For a complete SMB server solution, pair the HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 v2 with Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials edition. This edition of Windows Server 2012 R2 is the ideal server for small businesses, simplifying the integration of optional cloud-based applications and services such as Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Azure. Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials helps SMBs minimize the time, effort, and money they spend on IT.
