Power10 IBM i S1014 4-core SW group P05, is currently limited to 64 GB, should be expanded to at least 256 GB.

It's really very necessary this change because all application need more resources specially memory; before 64 GB they were enough, now not anymore.

    The Power10 S1014 4-core machine with IBM i (P05 tier) has the 64 GB memory limitation as well as storage and external I/O limitations. These are the same as the previous S814/S914 generations with 4 cores and IBM i. IBM currently does not have any plans to change the limitations on this model. The S1014 8-core or S1022s 2x4-core are available at the P10 tier without these limitations.

    WORSE, Hypervisor memory use on Power10 systems is 3x that of previous systems. On a 64GB system nearly 20% of main storage is consumed by the Hypervisor.
