Who needs DAS with RDMA?

Anyone who needs throughput on parallel workloads, that's who. Even if you've dropped rather a lot of money on gucci 100Gbit networking that's still only comparable to 4-5 commodity machines stuffed with spinning rust in throughput terms.

Remote storage is still a bottleneck for "big data" workloads.
