A Solid State Drive (SSD) is a solid-state storage device engineered to use integrated circuit assemblies as memory to store data. This is different from the conventional electromechanical drives which contain spinning layers of disks and moveable read/write heads. Therefore SSD’s do not have moving parts to break or spin up or down. Because SSD has no moving parts, it is also quieter, and consumes less power to operate. In addition, SSD controller software includes predictive analytics that alerts a user in advance of any predictive failures. In addition, SSD performance is much faster than electromechanical disks and users enjoy much faster boot times.
