   Read this from official website:

`ngx_slowfs_cache` is `nginx` module which allows caching of static files
(served using `root` directive). This enables one to create fast caches
for files stored on slow filesystems, for example:

- storage: network disks, cache: local disks,
- storage: 7,2K SATA drives, cache: 15K SAS drives in RAID0.

**WARNING! There is no point in using this module when cache is placed
on the same speed disk(s) as origin.**

I use RAM disk for this cache. Yes, it is fast enough.
Do you know any alternatives?
