I am fully agree with TAO. And also want to add that there are serious doubts about the need to buy ScaleMP collection of processors without testing . Just not sure that the decision to assemble a Super Computer (VM) that must be based on the software ScaleMP that will to the satisfy projected needs for a specific tasks. I ‘d rather see ScaleMP Free edition with possibility to extend memory, CPU and disk, as well as a full fault tolerance for VM in case of any hardware failure. In my opinion the commercial version should be easy to extend for using only the limit by the number physical NODES. Commercical policy must be transparent, and the free version must demonstrate all the capabilities of the system only with limit for use physical computers. After all, buying expensive cat in the bag may be too risky business ….
Many thanks in advance for good understanding.
