HP unveils new server development platform Project Moonshot

To support the industry’s evolution to hyperscale computing

By CBR Staff Writer

HP has come up with a new a multiyear, multi-phased program – Project Moonshot – which paves the way to the future of low-energy computing for emerging web, cloud and massive scale environments.

The Project Moonshot infrastructure is an extension of the HP ProLiant brand of servers, which incorporates traditional x86 processors from Intel and AMD.

Project Moonshot combines with HP Converged Infrastructure technology to allow the sharing of resources – including storage, networking, management, power and cooling – across thousands of servers.

It includes three essential elements – HP Redstone Server Development Platform, HP Discovery Lab and HP Pathfinder Program – to support the industry’s evolution to hyperscale computing.

HP Redstone is designed for testing and proof of concept. It incorporates more than 2,800 servers in a single rack, reducing cabling, switching and the need for peripheral devices.

HP Discovery Lab enables clients to experiment, test and benchmark applications on the HP Redstone Server Development Platform, and other extreme low-energy platforms, as well as on traditional servers.

The HP Pathfinder Program, part of the HP AllianceONE partner program, is dedicated to client discovery efforts across the data center.
