    Didn’t we already have something kind of like this called a Blade server? But this is better! An HP Web page devoted to Moonshot says, ‘Compared to traditional servers, up to: 89% less energy; 80% less space; 77% less cost; and 97% less complex.’ If this is all true, the world of servers is now undergoing a radical change. || A quote from another Moonshot page: “The HP Moonshot 1500 Chassis has 45 hot-pluggable servers installed and fits into 4.3U. The density comes in part from the low-energy, efficient processors. The innovative chassis design supports 45 servers, 2 network switches, and supporting components.’ These are software-defined servers. HP claims they are the first ones ever, a claim that may depend on how you define “software-defined.” And what software defines them? In this case, at Texas Linux Fest, it seems to be Ubuntu Linux.
