    p.s. It's cheaper to buy MB that supports big memory - from 8Gb to 128Gb, and to buy the memory - than it is to buy I/O bus connected physical RAM devices.

    On 50% probability, my next server will have about 64-128Gb RAM. I'll program a special-purpose web crawler, content analysis engine and search engine. I'll start in in a year or year and a half.
    Okay you can emulate a RAMDisk in software? Is this just a virtualisation thing?

    (I'm interested because I DO run 8Gb of RAM.. your words....they interest me I'm thinking of tweaking my computer again.... though that's usually a terrible idea!!!)

    I use RAMDisk 9.0 plus by Superspeed LLC. I don't remember what it cost - but it was one of the only software RAMdisks that would run
    1) on x64 machine
    2) on a windows server
    3) not have ridiculously limited space

    The RAM is in real RAM, 1:1. No caching or paging involved.

    But, I did a few tests.. it seems that keeping VM in SSD is faster, because then the host RAM can be dynamically used for cache in files OTHER than those in the RAMdrive. I think it can actually be hard to find useful uses for RAMDrive, apart from testing, and keeping files you _want_ to be deleted fast.

    Encrypting/decrypting and destroying the password would do the same effect as deleting files, but at a speed cost.
