In-memory Hadoop – use it when speed matters

GridGain has a 100% HDFS compatible RAM solution that it claims is 10x faster for IO and network intensive MapReduce processing. I understand the IO, but am not sure why it work help with network intensive operations.  It can be used standalone or along with disk based HDFS as a cache. It is compatible with all Hadoop distributions as well as standard tools like HBase, Hive, etc.
