    It's very nice, I'd love to have this as a home lab machine too. :) It would be nice if they could save it down to 1-4U rack for home use.

    The only cons are the max 2GB per CPU, no ECC, high entry cost ($150K) and right now just an unproven concept that we have to wait before we can even suggest it to a CEO. Because of those cons, the market is going to be very small unless they scale down the hardware and cost and provide a lot of stats, reviews, community support and so on.

    Very nice indeed.

    But I am reminded of the infinite number of monkeys pounding on infinite typewriters...
