StarWind RAM Disk

Value proposition

In order to provide users with a high-performing storage for their testing purposes, troubleshooting cases, or other deployments, StarWind has developed its RAM Disk tool. It’s a free utility that allows creating an ultra-performing storage by taking a part of the RAM and turning it into a virtual storage device. This process is extra simple since any installation has RAM available, requiring no additional hardware to be purchased. All of this makes StarWind RAM Disk a near-perfect solution for test and development scenarios, troubleshooting cases, or other niched deployments like online payment services or on-the-fly encryption, where size and data volatility don’t really matter.

Unlike typical solutions, such as superfast PCIe memory and newly-developed NVMe flash, which are expensive and not always available when needed “right now”, StarWind RAM Disk can be used instantly and with no additional costs. Furthermore, while utilizing such advanced and costly measures for test and development is definitely an overkill, our RAM Disk tool allows creating a virtual disk of the desired size so that your storage is used with maximum efficiency. With StarWind RAM Disk, you can easily create a superfast storage in a matter of seconds, without any additional efforts or hardware.
