is your goal a "server" or "supercomputing"?  all that tesla stuff sorta 
says supercomputing, while HA etc says 'server'.

supercomputer clusters eschew HA in favor of having many independent 
compute units in a loose cluster that can tolerate any node dying by 
simply reassigning its last work unit to another node.  only the 
persistent storage (usually a SAN or a clustered file system), and the 
cluster controller needs conventional HA.

if your goal is a 'server', then something from here would likely be 
more suitable.

along with the appropriate storage etc, depending on your requirements.
