Within the membrane computing research field, there are many papers about software simulations and a few about hardware implementations. In both cases, algorithms for implementing membrane systems in software and hardware that try to take advantages of massive parallelism are implemented. P-systems are parallel and non deterministic systems which simulate membranes behavior when processing information. This paper presents software techniques based on the proper utilization of virtual memory of a computer. There is a study of how much virtual memory is necessary to host a membrane model. This method improves performance in terms of time.
