Unloading data In Ember Data


Would it be a correct statement that Ember Data never automatically unloads data from its cache? I am curious because I am intending to build a client side app with large data sets, and I would like to unload records when they are no longer needed. And I haven’t found much info about people doing this besides this S.O. answer: http://stackoverflow.com/a/20716175/2763703.

Is this concept something I should worry about or is there maybe something in the Ember core that covers this? I just want to make sure I understand the Ember Data philosophy, because it’s possible I am missing something obvious here because I am quite new to Ember.

There was a Soundcloud post I read a while back that gave some good insight as well https://developers.soundcloud.com/blog/building-the-next-soundcloud (Letting go section).
