How Important is Computer Data Storage?
data storage is a very important part of a system providing the most
significant function of retaining information. Computer data storage
includes all computer devices, components and other recording media.The
memory of the storage is usually referred to as RAM [random access memory]
and other form of temporary storages, optical disks, hard disks, magnetic
storage, and other mass storage are other alternatives providing slower
performance compared to the RAM.
types of computer data storage
The unique cache memory is a data storage in the internal memory used by different processing units to increase performance. Most information in the main memory is duplicated automatically in the cache memory though slowly. But it provides greater capacity than the processor registers and offers faster option in data storing than the main memory.
memory has all programmes currently operating and all information being
saved in a programme. But the inner processor registers in the CPU contain
the logic and performance is provided by the process registers.Memory
cards, CDs, DVDs and flash memory devices like Zip disks, magnetic tapes,
floppy disks and USB devices can be used if the data storage system
is not sufficient.
