Computer memory, also known as random access memory (RAM), stores data from open programs, increasing performance for accessing data. It is much faster to access data from RAM than from a hard disk. Typically, the more RAM a system has, the faster the overall performance.
Having sufficient RAM on a cluster node is important for performance, and should be considered when planning to deploy an Scuba cluster.
