Memory Management

In the early days of computers, "core" memory was a drastically limited resource, requiring careful use of storage hierarchies to execute even single jobs. Today main computer memories are much larger and are commonly shared among multiple tasks. Higher capacities allow more freedowm in planning storage hierarchies and allow many tasks to be run completely in main memory.
