Due to Windows 10 higher resource requirements and additional security advances inside of the core sandboxing engine, CPU and memory required by Virtual Analyzer images are much higher.
Recent hardware such as DDAN 1100/1200 (Dell R730/R740) models are able to meet the demand of the latest product update. However, older models such as DDAN 1000 (Dell R720) sold from 2013-2014 does not have the processing power to keep up with the latest product update.
