HP Invented a New Computer That Could Make Data Centers Obsolete

Hewlett-Packard is developing an entirely new kind of computer. But this isn’t some cheap laptop, quirky mobile device, or whatever else you assume HP makes these days; this is a snarling industrial-strength beast that could replace an entire data center with a single unit the size of a refrigerator.Nicknamed “The Machine,” the new hardware is still being pieced together at HP Labs—the research division of the company—and it sounds like it’s taking it awfully seriously. Businessweek reports that the company “will bring the Machine to market within the next few years or fall on its face trying.” Indeed, Martin Fink, the head of HP Labs thinks that they “have no choice” but to.So what’s all the fuss about? Well, precise details are scant, but Businessweek claims that it’s a completely new form of computer architecture that could entirely replace the forms of computing we’re used to: different memory, super fast data transfer, new operating systems written from the ground up. New everything, and so powerful that a unit the size of refrigerator could replace an entire data center.

I have over (24) years of Computer Aided Drafting & Design experience and over (16) years of IT experience. After graduating high school I attended a Technical College and earned an Associate Degree in Drafting & Design. I then enrolled at the University of Puerto Rico where I earned an A.S. in Civil Engineering Technologies. While attending the Univ. of Puerto Rico I worked as a freelance Drafter for a variety of architects and engineers. During my senior year I began to work for the firm Planning Management & Development in Ponce, Puerto Rico.

Currently still employed by Advanced Engineering & Design I’m now the CAD/IT Manager.
