Load SQL DB into Memory

Last Modified: 2016-02-18
Hi There

We have a SQL table with around 150 mil lines. to execute a query takes a very long time. Having a look at the resources, ram sits at 25% and CPU less than 10% while disk is at 100%.

Is there a way to load the entire table into RAM and work directory from there?
I assume this will also shorten the duration it takes to execute a query.

Do you perhaps have a link on a procedure where i can set this it up guide me in the correct direction.

Thanks in advance
