Sure, my data fits in RAM if you take one of those example machines, which we have, and which are currently hosting dozens of production VMs, and instead dedicate the whole thing to my database. I'd love that, but it's never going to happen.

It's still way more efficient to use it for that database, than running a dozen of hadoop nodes as VMs.

We do what we must because we can.
