RapidDisk is an advanced Linux RAM Disk which consists of a collection of modules and an administration tool. Features include: Dynamically allocate RAM as block device. Use them as stand alone disk drives or even map them as caching nodes to slower local disk drives.

I pushed it into the mainline last Sunday. Yes, I know, I am a bit late with this announcement.

  • Forcing rxdsk driver to do the drive enumeration. Removed functionality from administration utility.
  • Appropriately initializing major number variable to 0 before registering block device module.
  • Administration utility now checks for sysfs entry of rxdsk and not module name in /proc/modules.
  • Converted sector size input in rxdsk module to KB input. Modified administration utility to this.
  • Fixed bug in check for total rxdsk devices in module.

You can pull it from the git, yum, ZYpp & apt repos or download it from the SourceForge project page.

To stay updated, you can follow the RapidDisk Google+ page.

The project isn’t yet ready for distribution with GNOME 3 and the GUI and features such as sound recording must be implemented. Read more Also: The First Milestone by Mariana Pícolo
