2008 will ROCK!!

Check out the end of the following article: http://news.com.com/Sun+looks+to+chip+performance+to+bring+brighter+days/2100-1010_3-5362700.html

The suggestion is made that a single ROCK processor (a single chip, which fits into a single socket, which could fit in a single rack unit server, or even in a blade form factor) could be as powerful as a $3.7M E25K server (which has 144 1.2GHz cores). The public roadmap shows the ROCK processor shipping in 2008.

Think about that.. a 42RU rack could deliver the compute power of $100M in today's IT dollars.

My goodness.... How things are going to change in just a few years. The rate of change continues to accelerate. The high-tech shakeup will intensify. Adapt or die!! Thankfully, Sun appears to be making the right decisions on many fronts (Soluitons, SOA, S/W & JES, Utility, Grids, Storage, Dev Tools, OpenSource, Desktops, Linux/x86, Fujitsu, Microsoft, Partners, etc....). Directed and inspired innovation will drive the revolution.

Me... I'm holding onto my stock options... Believing that lead can turn back into gold in the  thermonuclear furnace of our G2-class Sun.
