<p>Virtualized error checking and correcting (ECC) is a scheme that virtualizes memory-error correction. Unlike traditional uniform ECC, which provides a fixed level of error tolerance, virtualized ECC enables flexible memory protection by mapping redundant information needed for correcting errors onto the memory namespace. Additionally, virtualized ECC enables error-correction mechanisms that can adapt to user and system demands.</p>
