A concept well worth discussing.
I think I've broached this topic a couple of times on this list - we are
seeing ever more applications hungry for large amounts of RAM,
whether or not that is just programmers dimensioning larger and larger
arrays, or applications using finer and finer mesh sizes to
capture detail of physical processes.
But does that data have to be in main memory - I think 'storage memory'
like this has a great future.

Also add in the requirement of Big Data in-memory databases too.

Class, discuss.
