Maybe your software is like SQL server.. You can set it to use a certain amount of ram, it will use all of it and only free some of it if other process need some RAM. It uses pretty much all the available when left to default settings and leave a bare minimum for the OS.

It may have a default value to use a certain percentage of the available ram and lock it to itself..

My home 2008R2 server runs Chrome in the background which use tons of RAM, tons of services for testing puposes + and streaming server.. it's not even using a whole GB of ram.
