HP Moonshot 1500 software defined capable compute servers
Riding the current software defined data center (SDDC) wave being led by the likes of VMware and software defined networking (SDN) also championed by VMware via their acquisition of Nicira last year, Software Defined Marketing (SDM) is in full force, along with Software Defined Data Infrastructures (SDDI). HP being a player in providing the core building blocks for traditional little data and big data, along with physical, virtual, converged, cloud and software defined has announced a new compute, processor or server platform called the Moonshot 1500. Software defined marketing aside, there are some real and interesting things from a technology standpoint that HP is doing with the Moonshot 1500 along with other vendors who are offering micro server based solutions. First,…

It can produce consistent virtual desktops. I'd like to see some sort of iLO and a more graphical interface.

What other advice do I have?

This solution was recommended to us and we saw it being demoed. It was just very attractive. Other people recommended it from other companies we have contracts with, such as Softcat. Other companies we deal with use it as well. Based on recommendation from other companies using it, it seemed like a good idea to get it. Make sure you do your research beforehand. Make sure you get a better understanding of the commands and the command lines. If we had that information in the beginning, we'd have made it a bit more seamless. Get more technical support for the set up.

The new architecture of interchangeable "boxes" allows for more customization and less environmental impact.
Originally posted in Spanish at http://mrtechpr.com/?p=105. HP aims to create a new market niche for any corporate server with Moonshot system requirements. The servers are cheap, as the price is lower and is more efficient in its energy use. This provides HP with a major way to approach other companies and increase its customer base. The Moonshot project consists of a series of servers, and their respective architectures, so that customers can assemble their data centers in a smaller space, and with a lighter environmental footprint. During a web-cast, a US company said its systems consume 89% less energy, take up 80% less space and  and are 77% lower priced than traditional servers with x86 architecture. How does HP achieve these benefits? The new servers are based on SoC…

We can now offer our customers a real Windows 7 or 8/8.1 cloud-based desktop, but some ‘sizing’ will still be needed to see how many users will be able to run a certain workload on a single blade.
During the last year or so I have had my eye on the HP Moonshot platform. I followed what other community members had to say about it, how HP marketed the product and of course the announced partnership between HP and Citrix, introducing the Workspace Pod series at Summit not that long ago. I was rather skeptic, and I guess I still am. On the other hand, I also acknowledge that times are changing and that, if the use case fits, HP Moonshot might be a valuable solution, it just depends. I actually wrote this article about three weeks ago and hadn’t gotten around to review and/or post it since, with no specific reason really, other than being busy working on all kinds of other projects, professionally as well as personally. I wasn’t expecting any announcements on the Moonshot platform,…
