“The design of our latest HPE MicroServer and strategic pricing model was inspired by our SMB customers to meet their expectations for the most economical, secure and easy-to-manage solutions that supports their entire business operation,” he said.
The new HPE ProLiant MicroServer Gen10 Plus weighs only 10 pounds and is a third of the size of existing server market offerings3, allowing it to be light enough to carry and be placed in any-sized environment. Through a monthly subscription-based service, customers with any business goal can adopt it for less than $20 / month and gain the following capabilities that enable faster performance, data protection, automation and ease-of-management tailored to small business needs and scale.
