Interesting that Sun is doing that. Having been around different
industry segments employing HPC it has been my experience that most
would not trust their IP (intellectual property) outside of their
exclusive control. Pharma, entertainment and commercial startups are
usually too protective of their IP.

It is a reasonable assumption that Sun did their homework. I wonder who
they are targeting.
