    Our 2016 updates take significantly longer than for our 2008R2/2012/2012R2 hosts.

    Why on earth tie this to Datacenter? There are many of us that do NOT want our VM hosts handling both storage and compute duties. $25k in licensing--and that's before hardware costs--means a Windows-based storage system never even makes the shortlist. Look at the numbers and tell us how we can justify the cost vs. competitors. It's just not possible. It only makes sense in an HCI environment, but why condemn this solution to that niche market? Wasn't the whole point of the Windows Storage stack to show the compelling performance and cost of commodity hardware and Windows software?

    Please don't dig in your heels on this; please find another way. The people caring enough to comment here are the ones that have been the main cheerleaders for Windows-based storage systems. This decision leaves the people that have been selling this without a reason to recommend it.
