HP Squeezes 288 Servers into a 4U Rackmount Case!

HP Project Moon

While this project is aimed at huge data centres, many Automated Home readers have several rackmount servers controlling all aspects of their home automation systems (view some photos of them here).

Running costs that few used to worried about, are now much more significant with recent energy cost rises.  So these HP Project Moonshot low energy ARM SOC servers could have a bearing on the future in the home too.  Check out the videos and the PR after the jump.

“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.

Through these efforts, data center efficiencies are expected to 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.(For companies with thousands of servers delivering web services, social media and simple content delivery applications, Project Moonshot is designed to deliver improved simplicity while achieving energy and cost savings never before possible.

Project Moonshot is based on experience gained through HP’s leading low-energy innovations such as HP Data Center Smart Grid, which enables customers to double or triple their data center capacity, as well as the recently announced HP EcoPOD, the world’s most efficient data center. The Project Moonshot infrastructure is an extension of the industry-leading HP ProLiant brand of servers, which incorporates traditional x86 processors from Intel and AMD, and which has been the top server choice for 61 quarters.
