Storage is the capacity to retain digital information on a computer component. In practice, storage is organised in hierarchy, placing hot data which required fast but costly access closer to the CPU and cold data further away on slower but persistent devices sometimes accessed through the network. Fast but volatile storage is most often called "memory.".

The main characteristics of storage inclue volatility, mutability, accessibility, adressability, capacity, performance, energy use and security.
