If space is a constraint, but up-front cost less so, you might want to
consider a small blade chassis; something like an HP c-3000, which can
take 8 blades. Especially if all you want is a GigE interconnect,
which will fit in the same box. Potentially that will get you 64
cores in 6U, and essentialy no extra space required for
infrastructure. Presumably other blade vendors do similar things.
