We were honored to be selected by HP to be among the very first Project Moonshot partners at the November 1, 2011 launch and to have our processors incorporated into HP’s first generation of extreme low energy servers. - Calxeda CEO, Barry Evans
Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 09, 2013
Calxeda, a leader in the low power server market, today announced its ongoing commitment to HP Project Moonshot and the HP Pathfinder Innovation Ecosystem through its continued efforts to develop innovative, energy-efficient server technology optimized to address new styles of IT workloads. In addition, Calxeda’s Moonshot Server, being previewed today, further advances efforts to design, deliver, standardize and deploy innovative solutions that are uniquely tuned for today’s extreme-scale demands.
HP Project Moonshot, a multi-year, multi-phased program, is dedicated to the development of a new family of software defined servers including extreme low-energy processing technology purposefully built to address surging infrastructure pressures from emerging application trends. Pioneering the future of extreme-scale technology, HP Moonshot is the first solution with a modern architecture engineered for the new style of IT, utilizing a revolutionary server designed to help customers significantly reduce physical space requirements, energy use and costs.
“We were honored to be selected by HP to be among the very first Project Moonshot partners at the November 1, 2011 launch and to have our processors incorporated into HP’s first generation of extreme low energy servers,” said Calxeda CEO, Barry Evans. “Since that time, the two companies have worked closely to advance extreme low-energy processing technologies, which have received positive industry response, and outstanding early customer implementations.”
The Calxeda server will power the production HP Moonshot system later this year. The server features four ECX-1000 servers, running at 1.4 Ghz, each with 4 GB DRAM. Each Calxeda server will be among the best extreme low energy processing technology proofs in the industry in terms of performance per watt and density.
To help advance HP Moonshot, the expanded HP Pathfinder Innovation Ecosystem establishes a close collaboration of industry-leading technology partners dedicated to accelerating the development and deployment of energy-efficient, workload optimized servers. As a member of the HP Pathfinder Innovation Ecosystem, Calxeda is committed to working with HP and nearly 25 silicon, operating system and independent software vendors (ISVs) to accelerate innovation that deliver breakthroughs in efficiency and scale.
“In today’s world, where everything and everyone is connected, the stress on existing IT infrastructures is unrelenting,” said Paul Santeler, vice president and general manager, Hyperscale Business Unit, Industry-standard Servers and Software, HP. “Through collaboration and an increased cadence of innovative solutions jointly developed with our ecosystem of industry-leading partners, HP Moonshot will forever change how customers and consumers interact.”
