1) Were there any changes to the IBM Power Systems S814 and S824 Technical Overview and Introduction since it came out in August 2014?
I wasn't sure if any of the maximums, etc changed with the IBM announcements since then?
2) Also looking for an IBM "deepdive" for these guys, but not sure if IBM is still creating these.
I always thought the "deepdive" did a good comparison between models, features, etc.

We came from 3 Power 6's to 3 Power 8's.
9117-MMA -->> S824, All SSD's
8203-E4A -->> S814, All SSD's
9408-M25 -->> S814, spinning disks
We settled on spinning disks on the last one because it was a third level of replication and sandbox machine.
We got a pretty good deal on SSD's on the first two. Not that we're even close to needing more but when the boss recently priced SSD's he is so glad he took the deal.
Can't remember exactly why we went 824 vs 814. Both machines have 8
lpars: 2 vios, 1 AIX, 5 IBM i. IBM i lpars are type split: 1 Domino DMZ, 1 Infor and other "traditional", 1 Development, 1 heavy Domino, 1 hosting lpar. The development and production lpars are Mimixed over to the 814. The other 814 is 2 vios, no AIX, 1 host of IBM i, 1 triple replica of Domino, 1 sandbox lpar, 1 Domino DMZ, no Mimix.

Looking for all available upgrade options for P7-8205.
I5/OS only, 3 LPARS.
S824 is one choice, S814 is another.
S814 might be too limiting.
Are there other choices?
