Similar to launching a minecraft server maybe?

 

EDIT:: throwing something in the start-up folder maybe?

Information:

RAMDisk is a program that takes a portion of your system memory and uses it as a disk drive. What is the benefit? In a word: SPEED! An additional feature of a RAMDisk is that it will never wear out. You can access it at maximum bandwidth 24/7/365 without fear of mechanical failure, or fragmentation (a RAMDisk can become fragmented just like any other disk, but it does not take a performance hit like a physical disk does when it becomes fragmented). A RAMDisk operating at maximum bandwidth does not produce excessive heat, noise or vibrations.

Most users use RAMDisk to speed up applications like:
  1. Databases
  2. Internet Explorer and Firefox cache for faster web surfing
  3. Audio and Video editing
  4. CAD programs
  5. Photoshop Scratch Disk
  6. Speeding up CD duplication
  7. Games
  8. SETI processing
  9. TEMP files
  10. Swap space
  11. Web server cache
  12. Custom applications with high I/O, high bandwidth, or high security requirements

Oh, so basically you could have 16GB ram and use 4GB (or more) and use that for storage which is faster than an SSD. Thats pretty neat ha.
