True, but you can cluster in the box. You can say "Those 8 motherboards
are one 32 CPU system, and those 8 motherboards are the other half of the
cluster". You then get Oracle PDB (parallel database), and if one part of
the E10K gets a fault, it'll reboot the OS on that virtual machine. Oracle
will continue along slowly for five/ten minutes, at half-speed, till the
rest of it comes back up.
It's only application level clustering, but still, not bad.
