In computing, memory applies to the state information of a computing system because it is kept active in some physical structure. The term "memory" is used for the fast information in physical systems, as a distinction from physical systems which are slow to access. The term also refers to temporary state devices. Informally, computer memory refers to the physical devices used to store data or programs for later use in an electronic computer. Computers use information in a binary code that is...
A hard disk drive is a non-volatile storage device for digital data. It has rotating rigid platters on a motor-driven spindle that is held in a metal case. Read/write heads float on a cushion of air about the platters and encode data magnetically. Hard disk manufacturers refer to disk capacity in standard powers of 1000. Hard disk drives were invented in 1956 by IBM and have been the dominant device for secondary storage of data on computers since due to their recording density, among other...
A direct access storage device, or DASD, is a secondary storage device in mainframe computers that has low access time for all of its capacity. The term DASD was introduced by IBM to describe disk drives, magnetic drums, and data cells. The direct access capability of those devices was quite different than that of sequential access used in tape drives because it required a substantially long time to access a distant point in a medium. IBM computers access devices through channels, which are...
