I believe it depends on what you set max memory to, what is available on the host, and what edition you have. Aaron Bertrand wrote a good blog post on exactly this:


To try and answer your question, "If the server has less than 128GB, you will see these technologies compete with buffer pool memory, and in fact be limited to a % of max server memory."
