About Virtual RAM

The Virtual RAM (Random Access Memory) service allows space for your computer or server to write and read information to be accessed by the CPU (Central Processing Unit). This allows agencies to add and remove memory to their existing on-prem servers or cloud instances.

What problems it solves

Virtual RAM helps combat short-term memory shortages by moving information to disk storage. Without sufficient RAM, it is more difficult for the CPU to transfer data, which severely damages a computer’s performance. 

What the Service provides
  • Hardware and software which allows the transfer of data from RAM to disk storage
    • Gives applications a place to store and access data on a short-term basis
  • Gives agencies the ability to add/remove memory from/to existing on-prem or cloud virtual machines
  • Allows for increasing or decreasing RAM on an individual Virtual Machine (VM)
  • 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year monitoring and operations support
  • Notification in the event of an outage or interruption of service
Benefits of this Service
  • Removes dependencies for new hardware acquisitions, upgrades, replacements, and maintenance and support which saves costs
  • Help increase the speed at which memory transfers information to other components, which makes computers faster and more efficient
