What is a Solid State Drive (SSD)
A solid state drive (SSD) is a type of storage that uses integrated circuit assemblies as memory to store data persistenly. In contrast with traditional hard disk drives (HDDs), SSDs don't have any moving mechanical components. This makes SSDs a better choice for portable devices since they are more resistant to physical shock, run silently, have quicker access time and lower latency.
Note: SSDs have a limit on the amount of data that can be read and written on the drive.
