Cloud computing needs a lot of computers, which means a lot of failed computers and software that doesn't care.

I wasn't sure if the Tom's Hardware readership was interested in high-end data centres, but I got a lot of comments on the HP story (and only one of them was 'will it blend?').,1937.html,1943.html
