Solid-State Drive (SSD)

A solid-state drive (SSD) is a solid-state storage device that uses integrated circuit assemblies as memory to store data persistently. SSD technology primarily uses electronic interfaces compatible with traditional block input/output (I/O) hard disk drives (HDDs), which permit simple replacements in common applications. Additionally, new I/O interfaces, like SATA Express and M.2 have been designed to address specific requirements of the SSD technology.
