Sun in the Top 500

According to Top 500, Sun has 9 sites in the top 500 super-computers in the world:

14GSIC Center, Tokyo Institute of Technology
52University of Southern California
261Mississippi State University
412Sun Project Blackbox
413Sun Solution Center for HPC
416National Institute for Space Research/CPTEC
417DKRZ - Deutsches Klimarechenzentrum
427Sun Solution Center for HPC
467Universidad de Granada

Not the most impressive line-up, but we're working on it. In the coming year or so, look for Sun to move up the charts significantly.

What I find most impressive about this list is #412. Project Blackbox is a product, not a site. We sell the thing to whomever can afford it. Does that mean that everyone who buys a Blackbox will make the Top 500 list? Doesn't that mean there will be a massive tie for 412th place? What does that mean for everyone below 412 on the list? I absolutely love it when we change the rules of the game!
