Innovation for the Cloud – HP Cloud OS on Moonshot

Stephen_Spector

Cloud computing is more than just a software stack running on standard severs; it is a complete paradigm shift in the way IT operates and provides consumable services.  HP innovation in server design has created a new class of hardware infrastructure designed to meet the needs of cloud computing providers, HP Moonshot System

 

HP Moonshot delivers significant advantages over traditional cloud infrastructure hardware meeting the business needs of the “New Style of IT.” These benefits include:

 

  • 89% less energy*
  • 80% less space*
  • 77% less cost**
  • 97% less complex*

Moonshot is the industry's first software defined server where each cartridge is optimized to support specific classes of workloads.

 

Building on this server innovation, HP is delivering an OpenStack-based cloud software platform called HP Cloud OS on Moonshot which facilities the rapid deployment and lifecycle management of multi-tier workloads on Moonshot cartridges tailored for each workload.

 

HP Cloud OS on Moonshort establishes the framework for next generation enterprise cloud computing and ensures your organization is on the cutting edge of the cloud computing revolution, by allowing you to deploy cloud-enabled workloads using OpenStack, the industry leading cloud orchestration platform based open standards.

 

At the recent HP Discover EMEA event in Barcelona, I was able to record a demonstration of HP Cloud OS on Moonshot:
