is the Virtual Memory?
Memory is a memory management technique that is implemented using both hardware
and software. It is also a feature of an Operating System (OS) that allows a
computer to compensate for shortages of physical memory by temporarily
transferring pages of data from Random Access Memory (RAM) to Hard disk
storage. The process is known as Paging or Swapping and the temporary storage
space on the hard disk is called a Page file or a swap file.
of Virtual Memory: includes freeing applications from having to manage a shared
memory space, increased security due to memory isolation and being able to
conceptually use more memory than might be physically available.
