RapidDisk 8.0.1 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 8.0.1 on GitHub. It is a decent sized release. The changelog notes the following:

  • packaging: Fixed package descriptions
  • misc: update authors file
  • misc: updated copyright
  • misc: added GPL disclaimer to files missing it

In the last RapidDisk-related post, I forgot to make it a point of emphasizing that as of 8.0.0, RapidDisk officially supports export RapidDisk and RapidDisk-Cache devices across an NVMe Target network (both TCP and RDMA). This is a big deal if you need to share high speed devices remotely and across a larger network of nodes.
