Virtual Address (VA)
Definition - What does Virtual Address (VA) mean?
Techopedia explains Virtual Address (VA)
With virtual addresses, the memory management system is able to allocate huge amounts of memory to individual processes. The system lets every process assume it has all available memory to itself, when, in fact, the operating system is juggling memory between processes as needed.
Virtual address is also used in the context of virtual systems. As with virtual memory addresses, newer systems replace physical memory drive destinations with virtual memory systems, where hardware is partitioned into different and more sophisticated types of storage.
