The Killer App for Multi-Node

From Many Core Era, the question: what's the killer app for many-core?

The true "many core" era will have arrived when we realize this is the wrong question.

By the time we get to a significant number of cores we shouldn't care much about cores any longer.

Yes, yes yes YES.

Cores, while nice, don't scale as nicely as nodes. Truly scaling an application (and an environment) will happen in farms and clusters.

It's important that any solution designed for multiple core can scale just as easy to nodes - period.
