Allows a guest to add or remove memory after boot-time.
This is typically done by a guest kernel agent known as a "balloon driver".
+### Populate-on-demand memory
+ Status, x86 HVM: Supported
+This is a mechanism that allows normal operating systems with only a balloon driver
+to boot with memory < maxmem.
+### Memory Sharing
+ Status, x86 HVM: Expermental
+Allow sharing of identical pages between guests
+### Memory Paging
+ Status, x86 HVM: Experimenal
+Allow pages belonging to guests to be paged to disk
+### Transcendent Memory
+ Status: Experimental
+Transcendent Memory (tmem) allows the creation of hypervisor memory pools
+which guests can use to store memory
+rather than caching in its own memory or swapping to disk.
+Having these in the hypervisor
+can allow more efficient aggregate use of memory across VMs.
+### Alternative p2m
+ Status, x86 HVM: Tech Preview
+ Status, ARM: Tech Preview
+Allows external monitoring of hypervisor memory
+by maintaining multiple physical to machine (p2m) memory mappings.
