Well, we'll *gladly* sell you a *much* bigger machine:


Up to 512 CPUs, up to 1TB main memory (cache-coherent to all CPUs), up
to 8TB of disk per 19" rack. And if you buy enough disk controllers
and disks, up to ~10GB/sec of Unix filesystem I/O through a single file

'Course, it'll cost you...  ;-}  ;-}


p.s. Obligatory vaguely on-topic question: Anybody make
a CL that can make good use of a *large* number of CPUs...?
