HPE Moonshot System
Massively parallel, software-defined servers that are designed specifically for the applications that they run.
Optimised hardware for specialised workloads
Get the right tool for the job. Moonshot software-defined servers are designed for specific workloads and can be customised to individual needs for maximum efficiency. Moonshot's high-density 4.3U chassis carries 45 server cartridges and two network switches – which drives vast amounts of data between nodes and off chassis – and allows you to mix and match different cartridges to fit your specific needs. Moonshot offers significantly lower power consumption, less cabling and flexible scale-out.
