How has it helped my organization?

Benefits of the SDX, to me, are having a very large RAM. We chose 12 terabytes as the sweet spot. We could have gone higher with the higher-density dims and a very high bandwidth backplane, i.e., connecting the blades into the ccNUMA... more»

What needs improvement?

This is just my wild speculation, I'd like to see the onboarding of some storage class memory to really expand the already very large RAM, into something that could be even much bigger. This could really help in solving the problem of when... more»
