We study the index of large N SCFTs with gravity duals, and account for the thermodynamics of certain supersymmetric AdS black holes. More concretely, we shall: explore a generalized Cardy formula for higher dimensional SCFT and use it to count large supersymmetric AdS black holes; explore deconfinement phase transitions; study novel large N and large charge saddle points which exhibit certain features reminiscent of hairy black holes, among others.
