It started as a Cray system; have you read up on the CS6400? The E10K
was the next derivation of that.

I deployed them as a Sun PS engineer; towards the end of the life they
were giving the inventory away, almost (buy a SF6800 and get an E10K
"free".) There was a guy who I used to talk to who was on one of the
Sun lists and was based in the top-tier hardware development/software
development out of San Diego, and then later he moved east, but I
forgot who that was.
