[Erik Lindahl] "two 6-core systems would possibly fair better than this and land in the same ball-park cost"

The thought did cross my mind. The 12 core is $3000 over the 6 core, but doubling up on CPUs means the same for Episode Engine licenses which retail for $3400. Throw in the fact that the NMP is half as rack space efficient as the Xserve, and the cost of addition fiber infrastructure, more bang per CPU is better.

With something like this...

Replacing our 20 Xserve Episode cluster will go from under half a rack to nearly a full rack. Thankfully it will be 60% faster.

It may be possible to use two of these mounts, one facing front and another facing back, but that would require airflow up the center and out the top of the rack.
