Question

when will Digital Ocean start supporting ram disks?

Ram disks are significantly faster than SSD, why don’t you offer them yet?

They are volatile so they do not survive reboot, but they are the fastest technology out there. I saw a company that makes one.

100x Faster than All-Flash Storage ATTO SiliconDisk™ is an ultra-low latency RAM-based storage applicance with under 600 nanoseconds of latency. It is the fastest network storage ever, providing much faster performance overall than any flash storage solution.

Do you offer this?
