<p>HP Helps SMBs Streamline Business Operations with New Entry-level Server</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia: March 29, 2007: HP today announced the HP ProLiant ML115 server, a new addition to its x86 server line-up. The ML115 is designed to meet the growing IT and budgetary demands of small and mid-sized businesses, while optimising their business outcomes.</p>
<p>The HP ProLiant ML115 is an affordable, entry-level computing solution built with the needs of SMBs in mind. Powered by Second-Generation AMD Opteron™ 1000 series processors based on DDR2 memory and dual-core technology or single-core AMD Athlon™ 64 processor 3500+, the HP ProLiant ML115 is available at the price of a desktop. The server is ideal for networking, file-and-print, shared Internet access, small team email and LAN infrastructure.</p>
<p>“HP combines proven trust and design excellence of the industry-standard ProLiant server technology with the power of AMD’s dual-core processors for SMB customers by making it simple, reliable and affordable,” said Tony Parkinson, vice president and general manager, Industry Standard Servers, HP Asia-Pacific. “The HP ProLiant ML115 is a true server available at a desktop price to improve networking, business efficiency and protect company email and files.”</p>
<p>The ProLiant ML115 joins a strong portfolio of ProLiant servers that customers of all sizes around the world have come to depend upon. “The HP ProLiant ML115 was the best step up to a real server for the network. Its speed, ease of configuration and support from HP made the setup and configuration a painless and rewarding experience. I had no problems getting my key server applications to run and now have the headroom I need to keep my business growing. Investing in a trusted company like HP was a great business decision,” said Dean Calvert, Managing Director, Calvert Technologies.</p>
<p>According to IDC (1), HP maintained the No. 1 position in the Asia/Pacific (inc. Japan) x86 server (2) markets in unit shipment terms for the 19th consecutive quarter since Q2 2002 capturing 25.7% market share in Q4 2006.</p>
<p>"Small businesses require cost-effective solutions that will reliably execute a single transaction as effectively as a hundred. With the introduction of the new HP ProLiant ML115 server powered by AMD Opteron™ processors, AMD and HP have collaborated once again to deliver technology that will help small businesses maximise their IT budgets with the computing performance that addresses their everyday demands." said Kevin Knox, vice president, Worldwide Commercial Business, AMD (NYSE: AMD).</p>
<p>Ease-of-use and remote management drive customer value</p>
<p>The ProLiant ML115 is packaged in an ergonomic chassis that makes typical server hardware configuration changes simple – it is easy-to-use and easy-to-configure with off-the-shelf functionality. Remote management features allow network administrators to easily check and update the server from outside the office.</p>
<p>The smaller chassis and desktop acoustic levels make the ProLiant ML115 ideal for small office environments, in data centres, under desks or ‘out of the way.’ The ProLiant ML115 also offers:</p>
<p>· Four non-hot plug hard disk drive bays</p>
<p>· Eight total USB ports (2 front, 4 rear, and 2 internal)</p>
<p>· Easily accessible chassis for upgrade and expansion</p>
<p>· Optional drive key via front USB or internal USB for ease of booting</p>
<p>With the ProLiant ML115, customers have access to the expertise and guidance they need through HP and its global network of channel partners. In addition, dual-core AMD Opteron™ processors are built with Error Checking and Correcting (ECC) memory that protects businesses from data loss and unplanned system downtime. Unlike standard memory, ECC memory can actually detect and correct single-bit errors.</p>
