HPE Moonshot for Digital Media Processing

Massively parallel, high-density media processing servers together with trusted partner software to help you achieve more streams per rack.

Set the Stage for Continuing Growth in Media

IT must deliver increasing volumes of media anywhere, on demand to a growing number of devices. Moonshot’s integrated graphics processing unit, high-density and high-throughput together with strong partnerships with innovative software providers delivers breakthrough performance for video and media business. Moonshot media processing servers enable you to meet the growing demands in the market, reduce operational costs, and scale when your businesses demands.

Moonshot Media Processing Servers Support JITT and Cloud TV

In Media Processing, Density Matters

Achieve more streams per rack unit while using less power and space. The unique, high-density Moonshot servers enable breakthroughs impossible for traditional servers. Moonshot is optimised for specific workloads, such as just-in-time transcoding, with the power efficiency needed to economically scale to support millions of users. Moonshot solves the need for video processing with a broad ecosystem of software partners and solutions such as Just in Time Transcoding (JITT) and Cloud TV.

Enable a Modern Media Architecture

On-demand, online media consumption is growing fast and quickly replacing traditional broadcast media. You need to quickly adapt to changing programming and formatting needs, such as just-in-time packaging. This Frost & Sullivan white paper says that to achieve scalability, cost-efficiency and high quality in this demanding environment, you need to transition from a hardware-centric, fixed-function infrastructure to open, IP-based and software-defined workflows.

“When we saw the HPE Moonshot System, we loved it. The ability to just plug in cartridges and scale in a quickly growing, distributed architecture was ideal for our needs.  Since our customers rely on Mutualink to make life or death decisions in a time of crisis, reliability and resilience are essential. Choosing HPE and Moonshot answered the call in critical respects.”
