Data-intensive applications capable of providing rapid response to user demands have always been a challenge to architect, design, and develop. The popularity of Internet and mobile users demanding rich application experiences has further complicated the challenge.
In recent years, memory-based storage has steadily increased in popularity over physical media drives. The software industry now recognizes the value of memory-based storage for applications, and applies it to ever-expanding volumes of data.
