Animal Systems won their first Gen 8 Hero's award with an order for Dl380 Gen 8 servers.
We were up against Dell who were the cheaper option. ASL with the help of the OEM HP server division provided the customer with a fully customised solution. Including customer front panel colour and logo and also full documentation (TCF/technical construction file) and also a guarantee of delivery for up to 5 years.
By also introducing Microsoft Embedded server software we were able to match the Dell quote but will these added extras.
