What is Solid State Drive

Explain what do you understand by the Solid State Drive?




A solid-state drive (SSD), sometimes termed as a solid-state disk or electronic disk, refers to the data storage device which utilizes the solid-state memory in order to store the data. SSDs utilize the microchips that maintain the data within the non-volatile memory chips and consist of no moving parts. As compared to the electromechanical HDDs, SSDs are naturally less susceptible to the physical shock, are silent, have lower access time and latency, but are more expensive per gigabyte (GB).
