Shared Memory


Shared Memory is memory that may be simultaneously accessed by multiple applications with an intent to provide communication among them or avoid redundant copies.

Shared Memory is an efficient means of passing data between applications. Depending on context, programs may run on a single CPU or on multiple separate CPUs.

Shared Memory, typically, uses a Inter-Process Communication (IPC).
