Is it really so slow that emulation is preferable?
In my opinion, yes. There's a dearth of so-called "server-class"
hardware, which have such useful characteristics like "large amounts
of RAM", "decent memory cache", "fast I/O", "PCIe
lanes", and so on.
The development boards typically are very I/O constrained and have
limited amounts of RAM, making them less useful than emulation for
