I am hoping in the next iteration of MacMinis, perhaps 2014, they will include 2 TB1 ports or 2 TB2 ports. The reason I want this is because I want to focus on parallel computing, for my needs. Like this: Older Mac Pros are too big, and newer Mac Pros focus on Pro Apps. I found out that there is going to be Thunderbolt Bridging in Mavericks (10.9) much akin to FireWire bridging. This is exciting to me because Xsan 3 is included with Mountain Lion Server, (Lion too). Unfortunately Xgrid isn't bummer, but... I know of alternatives, thru research. I figure with the daisy chaining of Thunderbolt and networking them, maybe we could Xsan over Thunderbolt? no? This seems like the best setup for me, instead of a new Mac Pro. If the next MacMini 2014, is Haswell 2.0 GHz Quad with 4 GB ram, BTO 256 GB SSD, for about $899, would not be bad at all. This would leave me with a 4 machine cluster, with 4 chips and 8 virtual core for 32 cores. The current Quad MacMini comes in at about 10,000 on geekbench. Which over TB1 or TB2 would be 40,000 gridded!. With a Promise raid. would be about $5,000 for the whole thing. So 3/4TBs of RAID 5 over TBolt Does anyone think this will be possible? or if Apple might go for it, since Thunderbolt Bridging is in Mavericks? To me it's like this, you get the promise, then you get a MacMini, then every month there after you just keep stacking MacMinis!!, you could go a years worth, and have 8 MacMinis, for 80,000 geek bench. But I could just increase as needed which would be really great. Let me know what you guys think might be possible. I am doubting Apple would do Xsan over TBolt. But I am only 65% NO/35% YES. Because why would they include Xsan in every Lion build? ML and L? Just seems like with TBolt there could be a transition.
