Thanks Mike. I drilled down and the datasheet is
Seems like some nice mission-criticality characteristics, e.g. the redundant
power supplies built into the case, but if it were me, nutty mathematicians
doing something nutty, would I prefer a large number of disposalble nodes?
Not that they need to go faster than 3 days (compared to 4 years of design)
