HPE is the Smart Choice for x86 server environments

Growing uncertainty around the future of competitors’ x86 server platforms makes HPE the smart choice for customers that are increasingly reliant on their IT environments to support end user productivity, business growth and innovation.

With 100% commitment to the x86 server space, 75 years of innovation and 25 years of server industry leadership, HPE has an unbeatable value proposition:

  • 70 consecutive quarters as the top IDC vendor for x86 servers
  • Gartner Magic Quadrant leader for blade servers, storage and enterprise LAN
  • Rated #1 for performance with VMware, SAP and SPEC Benchmark
  • Innovations that drive down cost and complexity and enable convergence

As your customers transition towards the new style of IT and areas such as mobility and social become increasingly business-critical, the way in which they deliver, manage and maintain their infrastructure to optimise business value will be key to their success. With so many businesses running on x86 servers, having an enterprise class support partner with the experience, expertise and proven commitment to stay ahead of emerging IT trends is invaluable. HPE leads the industry in this respect – identifying IT trends and delivering the right IT support strategies to enable and support the latest multi-vendor environments effectively.  

With recent acquisitions in the x86 space resulting in a gap between the multi-vendor expertise your customers rely on and what other vendors and service providers are capable of delivering, HPE’s unique ability to provide a single point of accountability that reduces cost and complexity is an extremely compelling proposition.

Work with Tech Data Advanced Solutions to help your customers optimise the investments they make in their x86 server environments by using the power of HPE's industry-leading automation, expert proactive planning and advice, and rapid problem resolution effectively.  Use HPE solutions to help drive customers’ strategic initiatives around Cloud, Virtualisation, Mobility and Big Data – supporting their transition to hybrid IT environments.
