Hp Moonshot: Say Goodbye To The Vanilla Server

Current enterprise data centers arent prepared for the onslaught of devices coming their way. Its not as easy as adding more homogenous, virtualized servers. Theres just not enough power or space to do this with standard architectures. Its just not efficient. This is where HP Moonshot comes into play. At massive scale, the key is to deliver the most efficient service for a specific workload. HP has created an ecosystem of specialized cartridges that can use vastly different kinds of compute engines to deliver a wide range of specialized services. These compute engines are CPUs, GPUs, APUs, DSPs and FPGAs from AMD, Applied Micro, Calxeda, Intel and Texas Instruments . Datacenters can put up to 1800 servers in a single, 47U rack, which could take 10X as many racks using a standard architecture. This extreme density reduces, per a given unit of work, the datacenter size, energy consumption, complexity and cost. HP officially launched today the first ProLiant Moonshot Cartridge with the Intel Atom 1200 processor and will roll out more over the course of the year. HP wont stop with those 5 vendors, as there are many different kinds of compute solutions that provide good specialized workload performance. These are workloads like cloud gaming, visualization, HPC applications, financial services and facial recognition. Stay tuned for more partners and accelerators. To help drive and manage the growth of the ecosystem, HP has created the Pathfinder Innovation Ecosystem.

HP, NEC join forces to develop next-generation x86 servers

user avatar

The new partnership will aim to speed up the development of HP's Project Odyssey, which it first announced in 2011. The project is an attempt to integrate x86 server blades running Windows or Linux with its Itanium-based server lineup based on Unix. NEC said the companies will specifically focus on a system that HP has been developing for years called "DragonHawk," which is supposed to be able to incorporate both types of servers into a single cabinet but has been slow to materialize. HP and NEC first began working together in 1995, offering systems built on HP's Unix-based solutions. NEC is also trying to expand its cloud offerings, competing with local rivals like Fujitsu, which is closely allied with HP rival Oracle in server hardware. NEC runs a dozen data centers across Japan, where it counts major domestic firms view publisher site and local governments among its clients. HP is trying to turn itself around as its main PC division suffers from an overall decline in the market, and its server business attempts to adjust to the rise in cloud-based services.

Intel, HP tout newest Itanium server technology

Rory McInerney, vice president of Intel's architecture group said that future Itanium chips would be built using some of the key features found in the company's more widely used Xeon server processors. He did not say when future chips would be released. Once envisioned as a high-end processor that could become pervasive across the server industry, Itanium suffered a series of setbacks and was eventually overtaken by 64-bit chips based on Intel's x86 architecture, which is now widely used in the PC industry. Software created for x86 servers is not compatible with Itanium servers, which are mostly sold by HP. In August, a California state court judge ruled in favor of HP and against Oracle over the latter's decision to end support for servers HP makes using Itanium chips. Oracle has since said it would support Itanium servers.
