November 1, 2011 – HP launched a new program for sharing storage, networking, management and energy resources across thousands of servers, which it plans as a boost to cloud deployment and advances in “low-energy” server technology.

Introduced Tuesday by HP, Project Moonshot is a multiyear, three-fold program for combining resources in highly federated data environments. It consists of HP Redstone Server Deployment platform, the first of a line of server development platforms built on HP’s Converged Infrastructure technology that incorporates 2,800 servers into one rack. The platform features Calxeda EnergyCore ARM Cortext low-energy processors, with plans for Intel Atom-based processors and others, and is slated for limited availability in the first half of 2012, according to a company news release on the program.
