HP Fuels Growth, Innovation for Small and Midsize Businesses


HP announced new solutions, advanced technology and an expanded entrepreneur program to enable small and midsize businesses (SMBs) to drive growth, improve employee productivity and protect assets.

HP Industry Standard Servers

HP announced it has expanded its ProLiant G7 portfolio with two new servers to support the specific technology requirements of small and midsize businesses (SMBs).

The HP ProLiant ML110 G7 and HP ProLiant DL120 G7 servers enable clients to achieve improved return on investment (ROI), speed application delivery and better utilize IT resources.

HP Networking

Small and medium businesses (SMBs) require reliable networks to deliver critical services and support business growth. At the same time, SMBs cannot afford complex systems that are inefficient and expensive to maintain or manage. Business owners want confidence that their networking infrastructure is aligned to their business needs and delivers the appropriate features.

Today, HP delivers new networking solutions to address these needs. The new standards-based HP V1810-48G switch and the HP V1410 switch series offer unique energy-saving features and deliver simple, reliable and cost-efficient networks. In addition, the new products are covered by HP’s industry-leading lifetime warranty that provides next-day equipment replacement to keep networks up and running.

HP Storage

Managing a storage environment with overwhelming amounts of data can hinder performance and increase operating expense, especially for small and midsize businesses (SMBs). The demand for continuous, high-performance access to information via multiple platforms has led to an increase in both infrastructure complexity and costs.

The HP P2000 G3 Modular Smart Array (MSA) is among the first entry-level storage arrays in the market to support VMware vStorage APIs for Array Integration (VAAI), making enterprise-class performance and VMware manageability accessible SMBs. It also supports HP Insight Control Storage Module Manager for VMware vCenter Server, enabling SMBs to simplify storage management and increase performance.

HP Enterprise Services

HP PC Backup Services (PCBS) is a new service designed to ensure midsize businesses and large enterprises have access to important data in the event of an outage, corrupted data or a lost or stolen PC.

HP Converged Infrastructure

HP announced new solutions to help small and midsize businesses (SMBs) reduce the risks of business disruptions.

Disasters, hardware failures and security concerns such as viruses loom heavy over SMBs. Without proper resources for multiple data centers or for thorough fail over processes, SMBs are often more vulnerable than larger enterprises to data loss. Just one disaster or hardware failure has the potential to bring down the entire business.

HP Business Intelligence

Originally announced in January 2011 as part of a $250 million extended partnership agreement, HP and Microsoft have unveiled the first self-service business intelligence (BI) and data warehouse appliances to specifically address the needs of small and midsize businesses (SMBs).
