What is HPE ROK?
Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Microsoft bring together the world's leading server hardware and software innovations, applications, resources, and support.
HPE sells Microsoft OEM licenses in a number of ways. To ensure our customers purchase the right HPE ProLiant server with the right Microsoft® Windows Server® editions, we developed the HPE OEM Microsoft Reseller Option Kit (ROK) that delivers, through our reseller partners, value pricing, flexible choices, one-stop ordering, and single source support to help you be more productive, achieve more with your investment, and keep your business running smoothly.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise resellers can preinstall the Windows Server operating system you choose to deliver a solution that is entirely customized to your needs and immediately ready to use.

How is HPE ROK different from other versions of Microsoft Windows Server?
HPE ROK is the very same Windows Server operating system you would get directly from Microsoft. However, through our OEM agreement with Microsoft, we are able to customize and optimize Windows Server specifically for ProLiant servers and it is BIOS-locked to ensure it can only be installed on ProLiant servers.
HPE ROK Base Licenses may only be purchased with a new HPE server. However, Windows Server Standard Additional Licenses, for more VMs, or Windows Server Client Access Licenses (CALs) can be purchased separately.

Benefits of ProLiant servers and HPE ROK
Our customers need tools that accelerate the complexity of getting servers deployed quickly and inexpensively. Hewlett Packard Enterprise Intelligent Provisioning (HPE IP) provides a server-provisioning tool that eliminates media and time-consuming effort as all required drivers and software tools are pre-loaded onto your ProLiant Server. No configuration CDs to use, no drivers to find, no guesswork. HPE IP recognizes if system software is out-of-date and automatically downloads the latest version's update direct from the Internet, eliminating server configuration steps and deploying servers faster.
