Gemini: HP’s attempt to get a like from Facebook and friends

HP is in a tough position when it comes to cloud customers, and its low-power high-density Gemini server acknowledges that. Gemini, with its ability to support multiple processors of multiple generations via different “server cartridges”, sees HP take a new approach with its servers, placing the emphasis on maintainability, serviceability and, crucially, support for the types of energy thrifty non-x86 chips made by Intel-rival ARM. It is part of the company’s Project Moonshot effort, which sees the giant cosy up to large cloud operators by committing to the development of very dense, very low-cost servers.
