People will build gigantic compute clusters with expensive storage backends when their entire dataset fits in memory.

If it fits in memory, it's going to be magnitudes faster to work with than on any other infrastructure you can build.

So the trick is, you take their "big data problem" and hand them a server where everything can be hot in memory and their problem no longer exists.
