In-memory data management is the process of monitoring and managing the storage retrieval and operations of data stored within a computer, server or other computing device memory. It is generally termed for a server or enterprise end computing device that monitors and manages each device memory for best performance and in line with computing/business objectives.
In-memory data management is usually done in an enterprise class server device, where it provides control over the data stored and executed within the memory. It enables adding important data, removing unnecessary data to free up space and prioritizing tasks/operations so that high priority data is processed first. It also improves performance, as important data is placed closer to the processor. In-memory data management is usually prevalent in highly intensive computing processes, such as big data applications.
