2012 Year in Review: Top 10 products

We look back at the 10 standout products which have been reviewed on IT Pro this year.

6)HP DL360p Gen8 1U server

Packing a pair of 2GHz Intel Xeon E5-2650 processor and 32GB of RAM (upgradeable to 256GB), this 1U server is a pint-sized powerhouse.

But it is HP's automated management and monitoring capabilties that makes this the best server we've tested to date. HP's Agentless Management, Active Health System (AHS) and Embedded Remote Support features ensure this device is an IT admin's dream.
