Did I just read that they include a full-fledged CPU (Westmere)with this TB storage system?

I think the main value proposition of this could be the lower power consumption when used in data centers. Higher reliability of flash devices may help to reduce the storage redundancy also. The claim of cost parity with hard disc array is hard to believe as many products in the market costs much less than the 10K suggested by the company.
