A project from HP initiated to develop ultra-low-power servers for specific data center workloads such as cloud computing and big data. The HP Moonshot Project was first announced in 2011, and systems became publicly available in the first half of 2013.
The company claims its HP Moonshot server systems are the first "software-defined servers." HP Moonshot systems use 89 percent less power and 80 percent less space than traditional systems and reduce complexity by 97 percent, according to HP. Up to 1,800 HP Moonshot servers can fit in a single server rack.
HP Project Moonshot servers are powered by ultra-low-power processors such as Intel’s Atom S1200 Centerton chips as well as chips from companies like Calxeda, Texas Instruments, and AMD.
