A collection of open source and enhanced Linux RAM drive and caching modules, the RapidDisk collection of software offers nothing but lightning speed performance. No additional hardware necessary! Just use existing DRAM and data storage drives. Breathe new life into older or existing hardware.

Clone the latest (and stable) 3.x source tree from the git repository: $ git clone http://git.rapiddisk.org/rapiddisk-4.x.git. If you already have an older copy of the source code previously cloned from the git repository, you can simply update it with the git pull command.

On the front page too....
RapidDisk is an open-source and enhanced Linux RAM drive solution led by BDFL Petros Koutoupis (who also writes for Linux Journal) that allows users to create, resize and remove RAM drives dynamically or map those same RAM drives as a cache to slower data volumes.

A new openSUSE Leap 42.1 repository has been added to the list with prebuilt binaries and kernel DKMS installation support. Please follow the setup instructions here: http://www.rapiddisk.org/?incsub_wiki=rapiddisk/downloads-and-installation

To help minimize my support workload, I was hoping to slowly start removing a distribution version or two starting in the next release. I wanted to quickly survey the users out there with the following question: Is anyone currently running RapidDisk on openSUSE 13 OR have you moved onto the Leap releases?

Also, are people out there actually using the RESTful API?

So, I decided to migrate rapiddisk to github. Be sure to update your remote server entries in .git/config

I have also updated the project site and all future visits to bugs.rapiddisk.org will redirect to the issues page on the github project.

Story
Tagline
RapidDisk is the next generation Linux RAM drive module solution.
Introduction
RapidDisk was designed to be used in high performing environments and has been designed with simplicity in mind. The system administrator is capable of dynamically adding new RAM based block devices of varying sizes, removing existing ones to even listing all existing RAM block devices. The rapiddisk module has been designed to allocate from the system's memory pages (as it needs it and not all at once during creation) and is capable of addressing memory to support Gigabytes if not a Terabyte of available Random Access Memory.

RapidDisk-Cache leverages a RapidDisk volume and maps it as a front end Read/Write-Through caching node to slower spinning storage devices; resulting in much more sequential/random read access performance.
