What is Solid-state drive(SSD)?

SSD is a type of big storage device similar to the hard disk drive(HDD). It is used for reading and writing a data and maintains to stored data permanent state even without power. SSD connected to a computer like a hard drive, using a standard IDE or SATA connection. The SSD does the same function as a hard drive but their internal components are much different. Her you will see “Features of Solid-state drive(SSD)”.

Features Of SSD:

No moving parts:

The SSD doesn’t have a spinning platter to moving a read/write heads or some other moving parts ordinary to conventional mechanical hard drives. Rather, information is stored away in integrated circuits. SSDs impervious to harm from socks, bumps, and in vibrations. Also, aside from cooling fans and optical disk drives.


SSDs are smaller and lighter than previous drives. It’s possible to create today’s ultra-thin laptops, tablet’s, and other mobile dives.


SSDs are silent, In SSD Drive have no moving parts so, no noise.

Power Consumption:

SSD drives consume 30% to 60%. It’s less energy compared with HDD drive, saving an odd 6 to 10 watts power.

Data Access time and Latency:

SSDs are lighting fast and generally the SSD 80-100 times faster than HDD drive. By skipping the mechanical spin and seek routine, SSD access data almost instantly wherever it’s on the disk.
