What is an SSD (Solid State Drive)?


A Solid State Drive (SSD)
A solid-state drive (SSD), is a type of storage device used in computers. SSD is a non-volatile storage memory hardware, which stores data on solid-state flash memory. A solid state drive performs the same function of a HDD, i.e it basically preserves data saved, permanently. SSDs are also faster than HDDs, hence operating systems work more quickly with SSDs, and so operating systems can therefore load applications, files and programs more timely.
