How CXL may change the datacenter as we know it

CXL == slower /tmp

CXL seems kind of useless for anything but a large cache blob like /tmp but, why not add more RAM and enjoy faster speeds? Can anyone give a real world example of where any data center said "I wish we could put RAM on the PCIe bus"? I've said it, but I'm not a datacenter and I'm not spending anything on futuring my hardware. However, every time I've said it myself I am not thinking about the wall clock, which seems like most _cloud_ data centers will.

Cloud costs will increase as existing configurations will remain the same price but using real RAM will become the "enterprise" option instead of the standard thus more $$$, similar to the "shared" and "dedicated" options we all know.
