HP has launched new server and storage solutions aimed at small and medium sized businesses in Australia.
The new HP ProLiant Gen9 Tower servers are designed to provide small businesses with affordable performance and efficiency.
While the latest storage offerings, which include flash, data protect and enhanced file solution have been created to give mid-sized companies the ability to cost-effectively increase performance and reduce risk.
HP ProLiant Gen9 Tower servers are designed to run general purpose workloads and essential applications, such as IT infrastructure, collaboration, web and business applications to support current and future business needs.
HP director and general manager, server and converged system, enterprise group, South Pacific, Raj Thakur, said the ProLiant Gen9 servers, together with the services and support expertise from channel, could help small businesses enhance competitiveness and achieve better business outcomes.
The release includes the ProLiant ML10 v2 -- an entry-level 10 Series tower server with low acquisition cost.
There is also the ProLiant ML110 Gen9 -- a 100 Series tower server with more memory, hard disk drives and I/O expansion for growing business IT needs.
It is also optimised compute for SMB physical and virtual workloads and applications.
The HP ProLiant Tower servers are incorporated into certain HP Just Right IT solutions for SMBs.
These pre-defined solutions include HP servers, storage, networking, and services configured with proven applications from HP partners.
HP ServiceOne partners also deliver support experience for SMBs with HP Foundation Care and HP Proactive Care.
HP Foundation Care provides support to keep IT environments up and running.
HP Proactive Care provides additional level of support that helps prevent issues and provides rapid access to advanced technical experts when there is an issue.
As the SMBs compute requirements grow, the HP ProLiant Tower servers have room to accommodate additional HP Qualified Options, such as hard drives, memory, storage controllers and network adapters.
The HP ProLiant ML110 Gen9 and the HP ProLiant ML10 v2 are available to order on April 1, 2015 from authorised HP distributors and channel partners in Australia.
Local pricing will be announced closer to the date.
Flexible investment solutions and financing options are available through HPFS to provide authorised partners and customers with an easy way to acquire the HP ProLiant ML10 v2 and HP ProLiant ML110 Gen9 servers and refresh over time.
The company has also launched new storage offerings for mid-sized companies.
For customers looking at hybrid flash storage, it is now offering a new HP StoreVirtual Storage system which is 12 times faster than an equivalently priced spinning media array.
Additionally, HP is now helping customers protect data with a more scalable HP StoreOnce Backup appliance and new HP StoreEasy.
