Containers get corrupted very easily. Restoring them using GPFS can result in a lot of issues.
Right now, we are implementing on ESX VMware 6.0. Support for this platform is poor. Also, one of the backup/recovery options is broken and IBM is not addressing the issue.
Tech support for dashDB is awful. We usually have tickets open for three to four weeks.
