What is In-Memory Computing?

In-Memory Computing Definition

In-memory computing (IMC) stores data in RAM rather than in databases hosted on disks. This eliminates the I/O and ACID transaction requirements of OLTP applications and exponentially speeds data access because RAM-stored data is available instantaneously, while data stored on disks is limited by network and disk speeds. IMC can cache massive amounts of data, enabling extremely fast response times, and store session data, which can help achieve optimum performance.
