Do you want 288 Cores in a 4U rack?

Let’s just say that we do.  Talk about being able to get your VM’s on.  Serverwatch.com has an article about Calexeda and HP have announced that HP will be using their ARM based processors in a new line of lower power high performance computers.  While these are aimed at hitting your heavy processing tasks they will work amazingly for most web site type loads where you have a whole lot of users making somewhat simple requests.  These workloads make great use of multiple cores no matter what their speed.  The one question we have is how much memory are we going to be able to put into the machine?  For more of our comments check out the podcast.
