HP’s computer vision continues to unfold in their development of The Machine. The device sounds promising and useful. At 100,000ft level, it is the evolution of the mainframe but with more performance. A big machine to consolidate more computing into a smaller physical footprint. Based on what I’ve read so far, it seems more a computing architecture for the business environment rather than general purpose computers everywhere. That’s ok. If the machine is more affordable than a mainframe, it will be a welcome addition to the data center.
