Tech Biz Recap: HP DEBUTS Gemini Server, AT&T to Offer 4G Services
Hewlett-Packard (NYSE:HPQ) launches a server system named Gemini, which utilizes a combination of “server cartridges” that contain low-power Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) “Centerion” Atom computer processing units, and shared networking, storage, and power/cooling resources. This intro is part of H-P’s Project Moonshot initiative to develop the sort of inexpensive, dense, energy-efficient servers which are more and more used to deliver Internet/cloud. The Project will also feature ARM-based (NASDAQ:ARMH) processing units, as opposed to traditional standalone servers.
The FCC has been asked to give permission to AT&T (NYSE:T) to use dormant spectrum in the 2.3 GHz. band to offer 4G services, by both the company and by Sirius XM (NASDAQ:SIRI). For its part, AT&T is anxious on adding more spectrum, after the failure of its T-Mobile deals, and has made a compromise with Sirius which resolves its long-standing interference issues, although this might cause problems for other licensees with adjacent spectrum.
