Make a smooth transition to Gen10, read the HPE Transition Guide

Posted: 2 February 2018 By: Tech Data Advanced Solutions Categories: Servers

With the introduction of Gen10, HPE is the first vendor to put silicon-based security into its industry-standard servers. This addresses firmware attacks, which are one of the biggest threats facing organisations today. 

Aside from delivering the world’s most secure industry-standard servers, HPE has also included enhancements to its software-defined infrastructure and flexible payment models. Powered by HPE ProLiant Gen10, this new generation of capabilities is designed to help your customers accelerate business insights across a hybrid world of traditional IT, public and private cloud. With HPE’s pay-as-you-go options, customers can scale up or down based on their business’ needs, only paying for what they actually use. 

What should I be selling to which customers and when?

When it comes down to the actual conversations you’ll be having with your customers, how can you identify and optimise the opportunities to transition to Gen10?

The Gen10 Guidance Pack, which aims to support partners in managing the transition to Gen10 platforms, highlights the correct upgrade pathway, based on your customers’ current platform.
