HP's Revolutionary New Computer The Machine Is Coming In 2017

Basically, the machine uses a new homegrown operating system, a new superfast way to transfer data that uses light (i.e. photonics) instead of the copper wiring traditionally used by Ethernet cables and a whole new kind of memory called "memristors." The first version of the The Machine operating system, which will reportedly be called Linux++, will be released in 2015 so that developers can become familiar with it. The final version of the operating system will be called Carbon, and HP is said to be constructing it from scratch.

The Machine’s design includes other novel features such as optical fiber instead of copper wiring for moving data around. HP’s simulations suggest that a server built to The Machine’s blueprint could be six times more powerful than an equivalent conventional design, while using just 1.25 percent of the energy and being around 10 percent the size.

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Wow. Why it is important ?
U.S. data centers consumed 91 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity in 2013—twice as much as all the households in New York City—according to the Natural Resources Defense Council.
Servers, lets sing: New York, New York.
