Genero Moonshot plans for 2015

Irving, Texas – November 26, 2014 – As a demonstration of its light footprint and ability to keep pace with the latest technology, Four Js Development Tools Inc. announced today it has ported a prototype version of Genero v2.50 to HP’s ARM-based Moonshot server running Canonical’s Ubuntu Linux operating system. Last month, HP® released a Moonshot system with a 64-bit ARM processor, becoming the first vendor to offer such a chip in a server.

“HP Moonshot redefines what’s possible.”

ARM CPUs are more commonly used in smartphones and tablets, but proponents say their low power consumption makes them good for building servers that consume little energy and pack a high compute density. Moonshot also comprises application specific accelerators that deliver breakthrough economics, which according to HP, make Moonshot unique. Its energy-efficient system-on-a-chip (SoC) design and shared infrastructure across 45 hot-pluggable server cartridges in a 4.3U chassis delivers 65% less power consumption, in 90% less space, using 98% less cabling.

IBM® Informix® is also offered as an option – the only commercial database currently available for HP Moonshot.
