RAMCloud : Everything will be stored in RAM !

I came to know about a cool idea from stanford university. The world is moving towards Cloud that makes everyone bother about our own data , may be THE BIG data :-) Some people thought "Why to store everything on a HDD / SSD / SAN etc etc. "Why can't we store in RAM ? That can surely speedup the response time " Cool ! Isn't it ! Next obvious question is "Is this possible in this BIG Data world ?"





The Key idea is Key-Value storing scheme in DRAM that keeps our data in DRAM at any instance of time. 

Here are some of the useful videos i came across :-)
