Temporary memory and Persistent Memory

Temporary and Persistent Memory: As a programmer, we need to know the difference between temporary and persistent memory.
what is temporary and persistent memory, memory in computer
temporary and persistent memory


memory is a combination of zeros and ones which store the information in both structured and non-structured way. so we can use our data in the future and we can also delete them as per our requirement.

So as per mainly two types of Memory available in the computer system.
  • Volatile/Temporary Memory.
  • Non-Volatile/Persistent Memory.

Whenever we store the bits. we store in memory. our hard drive is a memory and also our RAM is a memory.

Our RAM is Random Access Memory. and our hard drive is Memory. it's a form of storage. but it's a different type of storage.

One is Volatile and another one is a Non Volatile memory.

Volatile/Temporary and Non-Volatile/Persistent Memory?

Volatile/Temporary Memory

Temporary is temporary. if we remember something and forget something very quickly. then you temporarily get some data in your mind.

and temporary memory can be used by our computer for performing operations very quickly.  So the temporary memory is used to store some temporary data for some while. and after that, the data is erased.

Persistent Memory 

If we save a file then we would need to used persistent memory which is a non-volatile memory. we don't need to keep remembering. and we need to give the ability to save that file on to the hard-drive and on to the non-volatile memory and we don't need to keep in mind and we used this
