    Sorry - yet another stupid question.

    So the background to this question is I've recently worn through the write endurance of all of my SSDs as swap/scratch disks and I'm now looking for an alternative solution.

    Is there a way to have multiple blade nodes, whereby the amount of RAM per blade node is maxed out, and then I can either create a ramfs or tmpfs on it (RAM drive), and then export said RAM drive using pNFS or some other distributed/parallel file system/format so that to the cluster, it would appear as though it was one giant tmpfs/ramfs RAM drive?

    Thank you.
