As a midsize business, you don’t have the luxury of having a large IT staff. You may only have a few IT leaders to support your entire business or rely solely on a trusted advisor, or local channel partner to support all your IT needs.
In this economy where there is *no time* to spend on managing IT— with the few IT resources you have strapped down supporting a wide range of end-user requirements—you will want to check out HP’s new ProLiant Gen8 servers and Always-On Services. With embedded automation and intelligence that cuts lifecycle operations tasks and downtime costs, ProLiant Gen8 servers can give your midsize business insight into every aspect of your IT infrastructure.
I’d like to point out a couple notable benefits of the HP ProLiant Gen8 servers:
- Installs 2 times faster than a rack server; and as a small or midsize business, you likely have an HP rack server or two.
- Helps prevent data loss and downtime with the new Active Health System, a 24 by 7 Mission Control tool that continuously monitors 1600 system parameters giving you direct insight that help keep your systems running.
After all, when a small or midsize business gets hit by downtime it can have dire consequences. You don’t have the backup data centers larger enterprises have where they can automatically fail over and avoid downtime altogether. Doing more with less and keeping your business up and running are critical, and ProLiant Gen8 servers and Always-On Services are designed to make sure you can do both.
