In this times that we have to live in, it is more convenient/efficient to use RAM memory to do I/O intensive operations instead hitting the HDD, or wearing off our precious SSD drives.
James Coyle wrote a good article explaining what a RAM disk is and why you should use it.
I wrote a simple yet useful puppet module to assist me in my every day tasks with RAM drives, I hope someone can use it too.
Use this command to install the latest compatible version:
puppet module install facastagnini-ramdrive
