Entry Servers for Small Business Customers
No matter what the size of your business, the value of your data is enormous. Keep it accessible and better protected at all times with an affordable Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v6 product family-based entry server. An on-premise server delivers answers for a number of small business customers including:

  • Bandwidth constraints, latency, or heavy data usage that cause performance issues
  • Uncertainty and inability to plan for setup and ongoing cloud service costs
  • Preference for up-front payment over extended payment schedule
  • Some legacy applications cannot be migrated to the cloud
  • Regulatory, compliance, or data sovereignty requirements mandate that data must be secured on-premises

For a small or medium business, all of your data is your data center and is your connection to customers, sales, inventory, financial records, and ultimately growth. Help protect your customer, inventory, and financial records with a server that delivers the integrity and reliability of an all-day, all-night workhorse.

Professional VR Visualization with Entry Workstations
Virtual reality (VR) is one of the most exciting and revolutionary capabilities to impact professional workstation customers in recent years. One example is how professional designers can draft their CAD drawings and quickly visualize in full 3D/VR with a compatible hardware and software configuration that support a VR headset. The ability to view your design in VR delivers huge savings in design time, production, testing, and development. Previously, designs would often require rendering in 2D or limited 3D experiences, printing, assembly, or physical testing. Today, many of these tasks are streamlined and accelerated through the aid of commercial/professional VR usages and capabilities.

Supports the latest VR headset processor requirements from manufactures like HTC* Vive and Oculus* Rift.
