Techopedia Explains In-Memory Data Management

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.
