Windows Server 2016 persistent memory support supercharges storage IO


"Can't think of a single reason"

I can. Virtual server mobility. It's much easier with a SAN to hold the drives.

Don't get me wrong. For properly big jobs you'll want to run it on bare metal and cluster (even if it ends up being something like log shopping or AlwaysOn Availability groups), and at that point you don't need the mobility. If a node fails then another picks up the load.

For small/medium shops, though, this is overkill and inconvenient. Like every finely tuned tool, good for a specific job and useless elsewhere...
