RapidDisk 8.0.0 now available

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. Access those drives locally or export those volumes across an NVMe Target network.

I just tagged release version 8.0.0 on GitHub. It is a decent sized release. The changelog notes the following:

  • module: Updated for 5.14 and 5.15 kernels
  • utility: Added NVMe Target support / framework
  • utility: Added support for dm-writecache status readout in API
  • utility: Module checker code now traverses via sysfs
  • utility: Added module checker in daemon
  • documentation: Clean up formatting and add content
  • packaging: Fixed dependencies in spec and debian control files.
  • misc: Cleaned up and optimized scripts to enable rapiddisk/cache on root during boot (thank you Matteo Tenca)
