Run that one by me again...
Sometimes I wonder why some of the quantitative comparison info in El Reg articles isn't presented in a more appropriate format. I mean, I've heard this rumour that you don't need Excel to do tables, that techy geeks can actually do them natively in HTML using Visual Notepad, and that there are other less geeky but equally effective methods of achieving the same result.
Anyway, after wading through far more text than is actually necessary, the salient points which I'm awaiting the market's reaction on appear to be:
New Improved Superdome: throughput 140kQPH @ ~$20 per QPH
Single Proliant (last year's model): throughput 103kQPH @~ $4 per QPH
Clustered Proliant: throughput 1320kQPH @~$1 per QPH
Not looking like an ideal Superdome application based on these numbers.
