    As SDRAM has been much more reasonable, I want to use dramdrive for datastore in ESXI 5.5 to store test VM. Basically I want to be able to clone a test OS to dramdrive datastore, run some test program on it then wipe it.

    Is there a way to do that in ESXi? I prefer to do this directly from ESXi rather than creating a dramdrive in a VM then host it back to ESXi.

    Thanks

    Not with regular Dimms afaik... Persistent memory could do it but that's likely not where your focus lies;)
