what i want to know is how does the cabling for the drives work. looks like it would be very messy. or would all the SAS/SATA ports link up to a backplane that goes to a JBOD rackmount?

Though i do believe part of this is moving away from Virtulisation and every VM actually runs on its own quad core arm CPU. Its an interesting concept and I want to see how it pans out.

5's for HP.

I also wonder what those dozens of SATA connectors are ment for... to actually connect drives?

it might not be as alarming as you think, HP have always backed alternative servers (they have made 95% of all Itanium sales) but they normally don't do too well
