Customers can use the new MicroServer, which is the size of a typical hardback text book, for less than $20 per month. And HPE says the offering is as easy to set up as a smartphone. In fact, the new offering weighs in at just 10 pounds and is a third of the size of existing server market products, the tech firm added.

“We are committed to helping small businesses innovate, serve their customers, and drive growth and digital disruption by empowering them with enterprise-class technologies that uniquely address their needs for IT expertise, budget and space,” said Tim Peters, vice president and general manager at Global SMB & Mid-Market, HPE.

“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.”

The new ProLiant MicroServer Gen10 Plus offers a range of capabilities that HPE said enable faster performance, data protection, automation and ease-of-management. For starters, the inclusion of Intel Pentium or Intel Xeon E delivers compute support for virtualisation and database workloads but registers at just 36 decibels for versatile placement.

The system is also the first ProLiant MicroServer - and the industry’s only server family - to provide the HPE-exclusive silicon root of trust technology, the company explained, which extends security protection at the silicon level.

Users can also use cloud-based AI management tool HPE InfoSIght for Servers, HPE Integrated Lights Out 5 (iLo5) for remote management, as well as flexible options for both in-office operations and the cloud.

“SMBs are looking for easy-to-manage solutions that can scale as needed. Solutions, such as this one from HPE, addresses this demand with small businesses by delivering enterprise-grade technologies, which combine servers, software, networking and cloud capabilities that are easier for small business to adopt and manage regardless of their in-house IT capabilities,” commented Shari Lava, research director, Small Medium Business (SMB) Research Program at IDC.
