What does SSD stand for?

Solid State Drive

SSD stands for solid state drive. It’s a term that’s commonly used to describe a type of storage device that’s similar to a hard disk drive (HDD).

Unlike HDDs, SSDs don’t have any moving parts. This is a key difference between SSDs and HDDs.

SSDs store data using something called flash memory. Thanks to this technology, SSDs can access data much faster than HDDs can. This speed is one of the main advantages of SSDs.
