Is there a viable way to increase the memory available for VoltDB by using a RamSan?

As an in-memory database, VoltDB needs physical RAM to store table data and indexes. The RamSan products and other flash-based storage devices do not provide the same performance as physical RAM.


However, any VoltDB feature that requires access to storage (i.e., snapshots) would benefit from the IOPs and throughput that flash-based storage devices provide versus rotating media.
