Tech 10: Blockbusters In The Data Center


1. HP Moonshot

Hewlett-Packard's upcoming HP Moonshot modular server line is being touted as an alternative to traditional servers, including other HP servers, for use in Internet data centers and other areas where high performance, low power consumption and flexible configurations are important. The Moonshot servers feature a common chassis with server cartridges that can be configured with different processors and even preconfigured with specific applications. HP's initial Moonshot server features the Intel Atom processor, which allows up to 450 servers per rack.
