if I can simply direct objects to memory cache based on something like a cache-control header
or something similar, than that would be more desirable. As opposed to creating a disk cache

For now, the only options available it he “RAM disk”. Alan has promised some good changes
in this space, where tiered caching is generalized. I’m *hoping* this will include allowing
for RAM cache only, or at least a configuration option where certain disk backends are not
backed with the ATS RAM cache. The problem (IMO) with the current setup (provided by Comcast)
is that you can not turn off the ATS RAM cache per disk volume. Which means, if you have RAM
cache enabled, RAM disk volumes will still consume ATS RAM cache as well.
