Persistent memory

Updated: 05/02/2021 by Computer Hope

Persistent memory is a memory that can be accessed even after the process that created it has ended. The technique may use the processor's memory access functions directly, or special APIs that facilitate low-level memory access. Often, a persistent memory scheme will structure data using a filesystem to associate identifiers with the information stored in RAM or virtual memory.
