We just got a Cray at work, one of the new XT-4's. It doesn't have
many nodes, just 20-odd, but it's scaleable to MANY more. I don't
really understand how it's set up, but it looks like there's some sort
of complex system in which there are several types of nodes and a
bunch of different networks... doesn't seem as well laid-out as the
Blue Gene, but still pretty cool.
You wouldn't use it for serving webpages, though.
