Solid State Drives
SSD. Stands for "Solid State Drive." An SSD is a type of mass storage device similar to a hard disk drive (HDD). ... Unlike hard drives, SSDs do not have any moving parts (which is why they are called solid state drives). Instead of storing data on magnetic platters, SSDs store data using flash memory.
Solid State Drives are ushering in a new era of ultra performance disks coupled with unparallel reliability and longevity by using flash memory NAND technology. SSDs are available in a number of interfaces including SATA, SAS, PCIe, mSATA (Mini SATA), uSATA (Micro SATA) and more. Options include the most reliable SLC SSDs or the higher capacity ultra fast MLC and TLC architectures including vNAND options.
