how can you tier to ram?
"Avere claims that, with new hybrid technology, it is the first vendor to automatically tier data across four media types: RAM, Flash/SSD, fast SAS disk, and nearline SATA/SAS disks"
RAM is of course is volatile, so tiering to it makes no sense. Obviously you can use it as a cache, even a mirrored cache for writes, but using it as a tier???? What's the advantage(over using it as a cache) even if it did make sense?
