This one is easy.  The recommendation is memory with disk overflow, using a locally attached disk.  You get all the speed of the memory write cache on the target device, and it doesn't fill up, because the cache gets flushed to the write disk as needed.

Under specific circumstances, you may opt for an encrypted write file (typically for very high security environments).

If you are using PVS 7.x, then Write Cache to RAM with overflow to disk is the recommended option.
