HP has just launched what they call the Project Moonshot, which will also be powered by Intel’s Atom processor, as HP takes a step forward to be a server leader when it comes to hyperscale servers, targeted workloads, power savings and better density. The HP Moonshot server line will arrive with additional chipsets down the road, and the computer manufacturing giant will work on Moonshot hyper scale software defined servers to cater for custom workloads as well as an ecosystem.
HP is hoping to roll out new Moonshot systems at three times the product cycle where traditional servers are concerned, as it remains a symbol of HP when it comes to innovation, while they remain a server leader and have every intention of keeping up with cloud customers, as this particular market group tend to have a penchant for building their own gear lately. A little bit more on the HP Moonshot servers – they are able to support 1,800 servers a rack, where individual chassis will share components for cooling, power supply and management software, while running on the Intel Atom S1200 processor.
