Today HP introduced its “Just Right IT” portfolio, which makes it easy for micro and small businesses to get exactly the IT capabilities they need at just the right time and just the right price so they can focus on better serving their customers.
The portfolio includes new server, storage, and networking products designed and priced “just right” to deliver affordability and value to small businesses.
“While small to mid-size businesses (SMBs) remain cautious about the economy, they continue to look for ways to simplify operations and prepare for growth,” said Anil Miglani, senior vice president at AMI Partners, a strategy consulting firm. “HP, with the help of its channel partners, offers an expanded technology portfolio with realistic financing options that enable SMBs to manage data expansion, improve employee productivity and retain, as well as attract, clients.”
Designed for micro and small businesses with increasing IT needs, the HP ProLiant MicroServer leads the lineup of Just Right IT offerings, as a quiet, energy-efficient server combining affordability, performance and data protection for businesses with up to 10 employees. It helps them more effectively centralise information and access files faster so employees can more easily share information while knowing business and customer data are secure.
The company is also increasing performance and storage flexibility with the 10GbE iSCSI capabilities of the HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 Modular Smart Array (MSA), which speeds the server/storage connection bandwidth by 10 times.
New HP data availability and data protection solutions offer clients improved business continuity and a simplified user interface for managing backup and recovery with HP Data Protector Express 5.0 Software. Designed specifically for the general user, it makes operation fast and easy.
Also being announced is a simplified shared storage with the HP P4000 Virtual SAN Appliance (VSA) software, a solution that offers clients with virtualised servers the ability to move to shared storage without purchasing a physical storage area network infrastructure.
Additionally, the new HP blog 367 Addison Avenue features best practices, tips and tools from HP executives and industry experts that can help SMBs tackle challenges and achieve growth objectives.
New HP SMB solutions are available through HP channel partners and directly from HP. The Just Right IT portfolio lets channel partners save their micro and small business customers time and money by meeting the full range of technology needs – from printers and PCs to servers and networking – with one trusted partner.
