HP To Release Low-energy, ARM-based Servers


HP today announced a new industry program comprising a new server development platform, customer discovery lab and partner ecosystem to help its customers reduce complexity, energy use and costs.

HP's new program, dubbed 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 paves the way to the future of low-energy computing for emerging web, cloud and massive scale environments.

Project Moonshot is designed to fuel the advancement of low-energy server technology, while promoting industry collaboration to break new ground in "hyperscale" computing environments such as cloud services and on-demand computing.

HP claims that through these efforts, data center efficiencies will reach new heights for select workloads and applications, consuming up to 89 percent less energy and 94 percent less space, while reducing overall costs up to 63 percent compared to traditional server systems.

Project Moonshot includes three elements:

- The HP Redstone Server Development Platform is the first in a line of HP server development platforms that feature extreme low-energy server processors. Initially incorporating Calxeda EnergyCore ARM Cortex processors, future Redstone versions will include Intel Atom-based processors as well as others. 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, and delivering a 97 percent reduction in complexity. The initial HP Redstone platform is expected to be available in limited volumes in the first half of next year.

- The 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 first lab is scheduled to open in Houston in January, with additional sites planned to open in Europe and Asia. With remote or onsite access, HP's clients can work directly with HP engineers and industry peers to learn about the benefits of extreme low-energy servers for their specific application needs.

- The HP Pathfinder Program, part of the HP AllianceONE partner program, is dedicated to client discovery efforts across the data center. It also encourages development of elements of the Project Moonshot program within open industry standards. The program includes independent software vendors ? compute, storage and networking partners who contribute hardware, software and technical expertise. Initial participants are expected to include AMD, ARM Holdings, Calxeda, Canonical and Red Hat

Additional information about Project Moonshot is available in an online press kit at www.hp.com/go/MoonshotInfrastructure.
