HPE servers with AMD EPYC processors can handle the workload needs of any small to midsized business. Find out how they combine to drive powerful business outcomes.
Choosing the best SMB servers for your company’s needs can be a daunting task. Given the wide variety of server types, processors, storage, networking, and other options, it’s tough to know where to begin.
Business servers can host a variety of services and applications for all sorts of SMB needs, including:
Managing documents storage
Supporting virtual servers
Providing virtual desktop solutions to employees
Hosting websites or e-commerce stores
Backing up company data
Hosting applications such as customer relationship management (CRM), accounting software, employee/HR management, planning and collaboration software
The latest business servers can power all of the above and more. Powerful servers such as the HPE ProLiant DL3X5 Series are capable of supporting all of them simultaneously.
HPE servers with AMD EPYC 7002 and 7003 series processors can manage all SMB needs
Whether you’re an SMB with no IT staff, or a growing company with some IT generalists, HPE SMB servers powered by AMD EPYC processors can help you achieve your business goals. HPE and AMD deliver the flexibility and reliability you need to meet your specific business requirements. The HPE ProLiant DL3X5 family of servers with AMD EPYC processors are competitively priced, readily available, and meet most SMB purchasing needs.
HPE continues to provide industry-leading compute innovations,1 including flexible and versatile design choices and improved energy efficiency, helping achieve a lower total cost of ownership. The HPE ProLiant Gen10 Plus rack family, integrated with a simplified, comprehensive management suite and industry-leading support, delivers a reliable, fast, secure infrastructure solution; helps increase IT productivity; and speeds service delivery.

Power through problems with AMD’s record-smashing processor performance
HPE ProLiant DL3X5 servers include the highest performance processors in the world: AMD’s EPYC 7003 series processors.2
The HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 Plus v2 server has taken the title in VMmark 3.1.1, providing 39% better performance than the previous 4-node 2P record holder.3 In fact, the performance of the HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 Plus v2 server edged out a competitor’s 16-socket result with an 8-socket result by nearly 2%. HPE ProLiant servers offer industry-leading density, giving businesses the power to consolidate their compute footprints by packing more VMs into fewer servers.4
These outstanding processors extend HPE and AMD’s server leadership, helping customers solve their most demanding IT challenges. There’s a tailored solution for any workload, when and how you need it—on-premises, in the cloud, or as-a-service with HPE GreenLake.
Defend against server and infrastructure security attacks
Your server infrastructure should be protected with your strongest defenses, armed with the latest security for servers and infrastructure security innovations to guard against and recover from cyberattacks. Limiting security to firewalls is no longer enough. You need up-to-date firmware protection and recovery, and malware detection—right down to the silicon.
Even before you buy, HPE helps ensure that your data is protected, inside the world’s most secure industry-standard servers.5 As data centers become more virtualized, servers should be your strongest defense, arming you with the latest innovations to prevent, detect, and recover from cyberattacks.
AMD EPYC processors feature AMD Infinity Guard, a suite of sophisticated security features at the silicon level. Infinity Guard helps defend against internal and external threats, with minimal impact on system performance, with security features including AMD secure processor, Secure Memory Encryption (SME), and Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV).
AMD Infinity Guard technology ties with and compliments the HPE silicon root of trust at the UEFI or BIOS level as an added validation of the BIOS during the boot process. Upon boot-up, the AMD secure processor validates that no firmware anomalies or compromised code are present. After this confirmation, the server boot process can continue. The AMD Secure Memory Encryption provides encryption on data stored in the server memory. The AMD secure encrypted virtualization creates security between virtual machines on the HPE ProLiant server when supported by the operating system and hypervisor software.
