OVERVIEW:  

Windows Server 2008 32 & 64-bit CertifiedSuperSpeed offers two high-performance RAM disk products: RamDisk and RamDisk Plus® (compare). These products create virtual disks from the server's system memory (RAM). Although in many respects a virtual disk behaves like a physical hard disk, in one key area it does not: it is much, much faster, up to 50x faster or more. Like a physical disk, a RAM disk can be assigned a drive letter and contain a file system (including NTFS with compression). Applications can copy, move and delete files on it. It can be shared, so other computers can access it on a network. Additionaly, it can be mount point to ease integration into application file paths.

Windows Server 2003 32 & 64 bit Certified

FeaturesRamDisk as seen in Windows Explorer

RamDisk supports a single RAM disk with no backup capability. RamDisk Plus adds multiple disk support, system page file support, and a versatile disk image backup facility. Its patented technology adds the ability to manually save the RAM disk’s contents, or automatically save the contents when the server is shutdown. This feature ensures that service and application data stored on the RAM disk can be preserved between system restarts. During the subsequent system start-up, the disk's image is automatically loaded.

Extended memory access  

RamDisk Plus 11 has a most unique feature. Our patent pending technology can access memory beyond the limitation imposed by a Windows 32-bit operating system! In other words, RamDisk Plus 11 can use "unmanaged" Windows' memory e.g. above 4GB. It can also use the stubbornly inaccessable memory between 3.2GB and 4GB.

This feature is now available in the 64-bit RamDisk Plus starting with version 11.7.917. Any memory not managed by a Windows 64-bit OS can now be included for use by a RamDisk! For example, Windows 2008 R2 Standard Edition 64-bit will manage up to a maximum 32GB of RAM. If your system has more, then RamDisk Plus can make the extra "unmanaged" RAM above 32GB available for a RamDisk!

See the product's help file for detailed explanation of what "unmanaged" memory is and how to access and use it with RamDisk Plus 11.

Cluster Resource   On Windows server RamDisk Plus 11 provide support for a RAM Disk cluster resource. Cluster applications which access temporary data on disk can now redirect their temporary data files to a RAM Disk cluster resource to improve application performance. SQL Server is an example of a cluster application that benefits from this feature.
Risk   If the system loses power or crashes, the RAM disk's current contents will be lost. An Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) can reduce the risk of data loss but not eliminate it. For low-risk performance solutions, see SuperCache and SuperCache Mirror Mode and .
Security   Another reason for using a RAM disk is security or privacy. Once the server is restarted or shutdown, the contents of the RAM disk are lost. For some services or applications, this is an important attribute that contributes to the protection of sensitive data or information.
Quality  

"Designed for Windows Server 2003" and "Certified for Windows Server 2008": RamDisk and RamDisk Plus have been thoroughly tested to meet Microsoft standards for Windows compatibility. Microsoft awards this logo to products that deliver a reliable, high-quality computing experience with Windows operating systems.
