The new HPE Moonshot m710x offers a significant graphics performance improvement—up to 30%—from its predecessor the m710p. The HPE m710x also simplifies deployment of any solution with a full HPE iLO remote console. So, deploying any operating system for a Citrix workload solution is just flat-out simple.

Citrix and HPE Moonshot Mobile Workspaces featuring the m710x!

Moonshot v2 - AKA the Edgeline 8000 has been announced:
Hewlett Packard Enterprise launches platform to unleash real-time processing at the telecommunications edge

The picture shown about half way down the page is a 4 Bay Half Width Chassis.
So you can combine two of these side by side on a special shelf and get 8 nodes.
Shown in the picture are 2 single height nodes and 1 double height node.


Also a note related to above, only the m510 and the m710x are supported in the EL1000 and EL4000 Chassis.
Only Cartridges with a full blown iLO are supported because there is no Chassis Manager in those 1000/4000 designs.
The iLO Handles the Power and Thermal monitoring.

Single scalable cpu’s :)
Let’s see how this works but I don’t exactly see it selling like hot cakes.

The have a target market for the single-socket scaleable with customers who have specifically asked for that. It is a good product for that customer group (though not clear that the application will sell enough to make it worth production & support).

As noted in the link, 5G enablement is pushing a decent amount of compute to the Edge, which is often the cell tower itself.
There are millions of cell towers.
Assuming only a 10% penetration rate and 2 nodes per tower for redundancy, that's still anywhere from several hundred thousand to millions of units.

But I don’t know what telco uses HPE or similar in these roles, at least what I have seen they are using either telco branded or purpose built by oem quanta, Winstron, inventec etc

Now acting s bit ignorant for a moment since I understand some reasons, what exactly are these machines doing in a 5g network ? I know some functions that use compute on the edge coming but as far as I am aware it’s not exactly related to 5g itself.

There exist Telco's using HPE for applications like this. Big ones... Edgeline 8000 was developed to their specs.

The product line economics are still a bit of a question. @Casper042's "millions" of potential sites is likely an overstatement (but a longshot, actually).

You got me excited till I saw it... Not moonshot, just a hardened Apollo multi-node chassis.
Same sled design as the Apollo 2000, those are 2u 4 half width nodes. and can also do double thick nodes for GPU/FPGA acceleration. Half width chassis's is new, that style node design is not.

While this is true I know that what we are doing is using white box x86 standard rack mount gear running Kubernetes & OpenStack for all the containers - we are actively avoiding these types of vendor specific solutions at the edge.
