English term or phrase: memory vs. storage
Es geht um die Überwachung von Servern, leider kein Fließtext, sondern lediglich eine Auflistung verschiedener Kriterien, darunter

- memory performance

und

- storage performance

Ich hätte beides mit (Daten-)Speicher übersetzt - was ist denn der Unterschied zwischen den beiden?

Hauptspeicher vs. Datenspeicher
Explanation:
Ich denke, dass "Memory" sich IMO auf den RAM (Hauptspeicher) des Systems bezieht während "Storage" sich wohl auf den Datenspeicher, d.h. die Festplatte(n) bezieht.
