What is SSD

SSD is a non-volatile storage device, which stands for Solid State Drive. SSD stores the data on flash memory chips and maintains the data in a permanent state, even when the power is off.

Sometimes, this storage device is also called as a solid-state disk or solid-state device. As compared to electromechanical drives, SSDs have lower latency and access quickly. These storage devices store the data in the semiconductor cells.

Unlike the HDDs (Hard Disk Drives), SSDs do not have any moving parts. That’s why they are called solid-state drives.
