HP Launches Moonshot, Intel Atom Powered Cloud Server System

HP, as a part of a multi-year plan to cut down on power and space needs, has launched the new servers that would help companies with massive web applications and big data requirements to accommodate more computing power within the same space and that too with reduced power requirements.

With more and more people making use of the internet for storage and cloud based applications, the need for computing infrastructure will increase to a point where larger facilities will be required. HP has claimed that Moonshot will help enterprises do away with bigger data centers as the new servers would take up 80% less space and would help cut down on power use by nearly 89%. Further, the servers would be 77% less costly than traditional servers.

The new server system is available on US and Canada and is priced at a whopping $61,875, which will include the enclosure, 45 HP ProLiant Moonshot servers and an integrated switch. Users will be able to customize the system as per their requirements though. Moonshot will be available in Asia, Europe and Latin America starting next month.
