During the past years, the average installed RAM size has increased tremendously, and it’s quite affordable to have RAM of the same capacity as some five-year-old HDD. As a result, this opens room for some new scenarios. For example, test and development, troubleshooting process or some niched deployments often require a high-performing storage. These are scenarios when size and data volatility don’t really matter since the used data is usually temporary.

That’s where StarWind RAM Disk becomes a perfect fit. It is a free tool which creates a high-performing virtual storage device by turning a part of the RAM into a virtual disk. Thus, StarWind RAM Disk can be used straight away, without the need for additional hardware since any installation has RAM already available.
