Just seen this on heise

whitepaper mirrored at http://eugen.leitl.org/cluster_server.pdf

Obviously, this is nothing for numerics. But, for some codes
(memory-bottlenecked, embarrassingly parallel) might be 
suitable, and as a storage cluster/HA this definitely has
potential.

FYI, I run a dual-mini-ITX system in a Travla C147, and it
doesn't have sufficient airflow to be stacked in a rack
without some dead space. Even then some extra fans might
be required.
