HP Makes More SMB Moves
As part of a “Total-Care” push, Hewlett-Packard continues to expand its SMB product portfolio for channel partners. While the moves aren’t groundbreaking, they could provide numerous upsell opportunities for VARs and managed service providers. Here’s a super-quick rundown…
According to Kathy Chou, VP of Worldwide Small and Midsize Business Strategy at HP: “SMBs are the pulse of the economy, and HP is partnering with SMBs to provide a boost as the economy rebounds…”
Hooray. The new line-up is geared to be cost-effective, aimed to optimizing new or existing resources and all spiffy and “green” for your energy concerns. There’s two new desktops with related displays, new virtual collaboration work environments, a new printer, and some tweaks on storage and network solutions.
The three takeaways that seem worth your time are:
- HP Virtual Rooms: allows users to connect with business contacts, employees or family at any time.
- The HP ProCurve 2520 Switch Series is designed for SMBs that need to deploy voice, video and wireless applications requiring PoE (Power-over-Ethernet).
- The HP ProLiant ML110 and DL120 G6 Servers offer SMBs enterprise-class performance at a cost-effective price.
In order to help VARs accelerate customer purchases, HP is offering financing on many of the purchases.
