If you don't care about security, you can use a RAM DISK, or even read
/dev/rand :)

The size of the database means almost nothing... you could have just 5
records that holds an ISO image of your favorite DVD's, and you will
have a database greater than 20GB.

I don't understand the point of "I don't care to lose my data, I just
want it to be fast", if it's this way, of course a RAID 0 will be faster
than no RAID.

see you !
