Microsoft Windows Server

Combine the ease of management, virtualisation, and scalability of Microsoft Windows Server with the intelligence of HPE ProLiant servers. HPE and Microsoft have worked together for over 30 years, delivering technologies, services, and support strategies to help transform your customers’ businesses, and unleash new business value.


Take advantage of virtualisation and cloud through infrastructure as a service (IaaS). You can count on HPE and VMware to deliver the high infrastructure service levels, flexibility, and reliability you need to power your business-critical workloads.

ESXi Images

Certain ProLiant servers require the use of the HPE Customised image for a successful installation. The drivers for the new network and storage controllers in the servers are integrated in the HPE Customised image and are not part of the generic ESXi image that is distributed by VMware.
