Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Moonshot Systems Deliver Breakthrough Economics and Performance

Instead of leveraging general-purpose processors, HPE Moonshot servers are built around processors customized for particular workloads such as real-time data processing, video transcoding, web serving and web caching.

  Moonshot can help you accelerate time-to-market and simplify designs by eliminating the need for custom hardware like proprietary DSPs. Optimized to conserve space, power and cost, Moonshot can help you improve your solution margins and reduce your customers’ TCO by improving price-performance and eliminating complexity.

The HPE Moonshot system consists of the HPE Moonshot 1500 chassis and HPE ProLiant Moonshot server cartridges—compute blades specially engineered for predefined workloads.  The Moonshot chassis eliminates rack sprawl by building in all key compute infrastructure elements. Power, cooling, management, fabric, switches, and network uplinks are all shared across 45 hot-pluggable server cartridges in a dense form factor.   The Moonshot server cartridges accelerate the performance of specific applications using specialized chips more commonly found in smartphones and tablets. By converging infrastructure and optimizing performance, the combined solution delivers the right compute, for the right workloads at the right economics.

Moonshot is ideal for a wide range of industry solutions including telecommunications, cloud, manufacturing, healthcare, broadcasting, and surveillance applications.  As an OEM, Moonshot can help you improve time-to-market, simplify designs and stay focused on business innovation.  HPE OEM partner Harmonic is a perfect example.
