HP shows off Project Moonshot

Written by Nick Farrell



Intel inside

HP has lifted the lid on its "Project Moonshot" server rnage which is being billed as a new ultra energy-efficient server architecture.

Moonshot began life two years ago with Calxeda-based ARM SoCs, but it looked like Intel Atom S1200 processors ended up in the spec instead. HP said that the Moonshot System uses 89 per cent less energy, 80 per cent less space, 77 per cent less cost, and 97 per cent less complexity than traditional servers. We should point out that the phrase “traditional servers” could mean anything.

The HP ProLiant Moonshot Server available as of today is contained within a 4.3U server enclosure and built around the Atom S1200 chips. Up to 1,800 servers per 47U rack are supported. The Intel Atom S1200 processor is what Intel claims to be the first six Watt server and is comprised of a 64-bit dual-core processor with Hyper Threading.
