Hewlett PackardHewlett-Packard Company began distribution of press invitations to a special webcast, which will prezntatsiyu new class of its servers, development of which was carried out as part of Project Moonshot.

Webcast is scheduled for April 8 and will hold its CEO Meg Whitman with David Donatelli, general manager of enterprise products HP.

Recall that in the framework of this project since last year, HP is creating a model-based server processors ARM, which would be focused on Internet companies, such as Facebook or Google, and offers users a low-power, low performance per processor unit but would sverhmasshtabiruemym. In 2012, the company said that it will apply for the server ARM-processors manufactured by Calxeda.

In their organization Moonshot-servers should be similar to the previously presented servers HP Gemini, runs on a processor Intel Atom. In the project development HP Moonshot used in reducing energy consumption. Among them, the technology HP Data Center Smart Grid, which can double or triple the capacity of the data center, as well as the recently introduced platform HP EcoPOD. The program is based Project Moonshot is HP ProLiant server platform based on x86 processors from Intel and AMD. “Project Moonshot – a long-term program that provides for a phased implementation. It is based on the experience of HP with the largest cloud infrastructures, as well as on the results of a decade of research IT systems with ultra-low power in HP Labs”, – says Meg Whitman.

The new program includes three initiatives:

  • HP Redstone Server Development Platform – is the first platform to develop and test applications on servers with the new architecture. Initially it will be used by processors Calxeda EnergyCore ARM Cortex; later versions will support Intel Atom and other processors. HP Redstone platform initially will be used for testing and trials. It includes more than 2,800 servers, mounted in a single rack. The first system based on HP Redstone will be available for a limited number of customers in the first half of 2012.
  • HP Discovery Lab – an organization of laboratories to test customer applications on the HP Redstone, on other platforms with low power consumption, as well as on traditional servers. The first laboratory will open in Houston (USA) in January 2012, then there will be a similar laboratory in Europe and Asia. Customers will be able to work directly in the laboratory and remotely. Together with HP engineers are able to test your applications on servers with low power consumption.
  • HP Pathfinder Program – part of the partner program HP AllianceONE, designed to encourage the development of elements in the Project Moonshot open industry standards. The program is designed for independent software vendors and technology partners. It is expected that the first will be attended by company AMD, ARM Holdings, Calxeda, Canonical and Red Hat. Other partners will be announced later.
