The field of technology is ever-changing with new inventions and products being released for the ease of consumers. When it comes to the data storage industry, we have seen the transition from magnetic tapes to solid-state storage. For Desktop, Laptops and Servers particularly, there has been an increased shift from HDD (Hard Disk Drive) to SSD (Solid State Drive).
What is Solid State Drive (SSD)?
SSD stands for Solid State Drive. This storage device uses flash memory to store data. ‘For the ease of understanding, you can think of USB flash drives. Unlike HDD, in Solid State Drive you have no moving parts, thus your disk doesn’t heat up, it consumes less energy and is able to read and write data at a faster speed.

Pros and Cons of SSD
Pros of SSD:
- Speed: As SSD uses flash memory, and fewer moving parts the speed at which your device works or website loads is much faster.
- Reliable: Less moving parts is directly proportional to less breakage or wear out of the SSD. Thus, SSD’s are more efficient when it comes to saving energy and are more environmentally friendly.
Cons of SSD:
- Costly: Being a fairly new technology as compared to HDD, SSD is expensive even though they deliver exceptional performance.
- Storage: Storage capacity here is again linked to the cost. Unlike HDD, SSD’s are expensive and so getting the same amount of storage capacity as that in HDD can cost you a bit more than you might have expected.
