It's an interesting device. It would take >6 racks of those 300 EUR Supermicro Atom servers at
a >200 kEUR price tag to match their 10 U.

Though of course one could just use the 200 EUR motherboards on custom trays, and share the PSUs.

Though one would then just stick with plain GBit Ethernet,
and not their custom fabric.
