But you’re no IT expert, so how are you supposed to know which vendor actually offers the best product?
More often than not you’ll find that HP is your best option. There’s good reason why HP consistently makes more revenue from servers than its competitors, holding 27.9% of the market share with $3.9 billion in revenue in fourth quarter 2014, while Dell had the next-biggest slice of the market and was still more than 10 points behind with a 17.3% share and $2.4 billion in revenue.
HP not only makes more money, they also sell more units, leading the pack with 642,000 units sold in fourth quarter 2014 while Dell took 2nd place again with 529,000 units sold.
HP servers are rarely the most affordable option available, and yet somehow they outsell the competition. Just what is it that makes HP servers so popular?

How do they compare?
If you’re going to invest in a server, why not invest in one of the fastest, easiest to use servers money can buy. Get a HP.
