Celebrating the 200,000th server to come off its local assembly line, HP recently donated a ProLiant DL380 server to not-for-profit organisation, Mission Australia. The handover ceremony was held at the vendor's plant in the Sydney suburb of Rydalmere.
HP is partnering with Mission Australia to help isolated young people in rural areas engage more effectively with society. Starting in rural Victoria, HP will provide training, hardware and funding through the Micro-Enterprise Development Scheme.
"We are very grateful for HP's support and expertise which further enables us to reach out and empower marginalised and disadvantaged Australians," Mission Australia corporate and community partnerships manager, Colin Falls, said.
HP director of Enterprise Storage & Servers, Stephen Bovis, said Mission Australia was helping to achieve better outcomes for Australians in need.
