    Default Hard Disk Bottleneck

    Hello,
    Me and a couple of colleagues just finished creating a Client\Server Application.
    I was responsible for the Server creation.

    The server takes images from the client and preforms some Image Process methods with the images. (JPG's)
    the tool i used to do this is : ImageMagick (www.imagemagick.org)
    this tool is operating via Command line prompts, for example: convert.exe -greyScale Input.jpg Output.jpg.

    My problem is :
    these execution work on my Harddisk and takes along time to preform.

    My quesiton is:
    is it possible somehow to load all the Imagmagick files into my RAM and use it as a Harddisk alternative? this way all computation preforms on my RAM and is superfast in comparison to my Harddisk.

    is it possible?
    thanks!

    Does the tool you are using have an API that will take Streams vs filenames?

    I've never seen one mentioned. That's an OS thing so I suspect you need to use JNI to get into the OS.
