    Your network is too slow…so buy Nutanix 🙂

    Data is good, conclusion is somewhat biased. But the point I wanted to make is that you won’t be using 100GBE in the data centre, much more likely 25 or 50GBE because the cost of 100GBE is going to be too high. Mostly because of vendor licensing and overpriced SFP but that is another story.

    The other vendors start before.

    bandwidth of DDR4-3200 at 25.6 GB/s, 4 million IOPS, sub-2 microsecond latency

      Thanks for your contribution. The biggest problem with NVDIMM is serviceability. When they need to be replaced there is some downtime of the system potentially. With Optane (3D Xpoint) connected through NVMe / PCIe you will be able to hot plug. But we will need PCIe 4 or 5 before we really get decent performance from it. In any case, the network is way to slow for all of this flash. Local to the server is the only place for it.
