RAM is an acronym for random access memory, a type of computer memory that can be accessed randomly; that is, any byte of memory can be accessed without touching the preceding bytes.

It stands for random-access memory. It is a form of computer data storage. Today, it takes the form of integrated circuits that allow stored data to be accessed in any order (i.e., at random). The word RAM is often associated with volatile types of memory (such as DRAM memory modules), where the information is lost after the power is switched off.
