We always recommend HP Enterprise servers for our customers and work with two of the largest distributors in the UK to make sure we can deliver quickly and accurately.
HP provide us with a server configurator that we use to design the best and most appropriate server for your needs. This means that before quoting we need to have a short discussion to confirm disk space, what operating system and applications would be loaded and the use of the server. From there it’s a simple task to recommend and quote for the best server.
HP manufacture both desktop and rack mounted servers and all have the iLo (Independent Lights Out) management system that will let you see the server screen, switch power on and off and check errors remotely. All of this is included as standard with the server and makes for simple management long term.
When well configured, the addition of high speed disks and fast RAID cards mean that you can get access to your data quickly with the confidence that a disk failure won’t harm your business.
We spent the last few days desperately installing generators for our clients in Scotland - trying to get ready for the XMAS period amongst strikes and power cuts.
If only you provided generators, then power would be as reliable as the network you set up for us. That never goes wrong - if a line fails the system automatically connects to the spare line and our customers keep running! Well done.
You made a real difference to our business, because you stopped us getting a massive surge of calls each time there was a line fault.
