Memory compression is a memory management technique that reduces the size of inactive data in the random access memory (RAM) to free up unused space and allow more programs to run at once. It is designed to fully use the available physical memory and thereby increase the system’s performance. Memory compression can be applied to computers, smartphones and embedded systems.
