Explanation:
hot swap (or hot-swap)


A hot swap is the replacement of a hard drive, CD-ROM drive, power supply, or other device with a similar device while the computer system using it remains in operation. The replacement can be because of a device failure or, for storage devices, to substitute other data.

Hot swapping works by providing a rack or enclosure for the device that provides an appearance to the computer's bus or I/O controller that the device is still there while it's being removed and replaced with another device. A hot swap arrangement is sometimes provided where multiple devices are shared on a local area network. Hot swap arrangements are sold for both SCSI and IDE hard drives. Hot swap versions of a redundant array of independent devices (RAID) are also available.

Hot-plugging


Explanation:
This term is a true piece of computer jargon. What it means is that you can connect a peripheral device (printer, mouse, keyboard, etc.) to the computer, or install a printed-circuit board in it, without first having to turn off the system or shut it down. Loosely, "The software allows additional or replacement PC boards to be hot-plugged..." NOTE: Although "carte processeur" is literally "processor board," the standard English term is "printed-circuit (PC) board," with the presence of a microprocessor chip being implicitly understood. (If a PC board is the one that carries a computer's CPU [central processing unit] chip, and to which other PC boards are connected, you can properly refer to it as the "motherboard.") -- Hope this helps!

Explanation:
In the specific instance of the removal of one board and the insertion of another, the term "hot-swap" ("hot-swapping," etc.) is also common.
