Frankly this is way old news. James Hamilton has been promoting this in multiple blog posts (4 to be exact) since January 2009. It is an interesting concept, but only works for certain workloads, mostly homogeneous. This may work well for the Google and Microsofts of the world, but I'd like to see it crank through an ERP, CRM, or batch processing system (can you imagine a batch process on an ARM core? not today anyway, it'd take forever!)
