Cray and company have certainly captured a major press win with their recent CX1 launch. The news coverage on this thing is amazing. I’ve got coverage from all over the world, and from all over the IT press, showing up in my Google nets.
The focus in IT news articles is the Microsoft angle. The focus of most of the bloggy posts is “I want one on my desk.”
The volume of news is startling, and ultimately good for us. Anything that gets those three letters (HPC) in front of more people, the better.
