Hewlett-Packard on Monday launched a Moonshot system that uses smartphone-style chips to power compact, efficient data center servers.

The California-based computer maker said Moonshot systems take up a fifth of the space of traditional computer servers and can cut energy use by as much as 89 percent while costing about 77 percent less to buy.

“With nearly 10 billion devices connected to the Internet and predictions for exponential growth, we’ve reached a point where the space, power and cost demands of traditional technology are no longer sustainable,” HP chief Meg Whitman said in a release.

“HP Moonshot marks the beginning of a new style of IT that will change the infrastructure economics and lay the foundation for the next 20 billion devices.”
