Virtual Shared Memory (VSM)
Definition - What does Virtual Shared Memory (VSM) mean?
Virtual shared memory (VSM) is a technique through which multiple processors within a distributed computing architecture are provided with an abstract shared memory. It is a data processing technique designed to eliminate the additional processor-to-processor communication required within distributed computing, such as when the new value of a global variable changed by a processor must be passed to other processors.

For example, if a processor is changing/altering the variable X, all other processors working on the same variable will see the new value.
