A solid-state drive is much quicker than any conventional hard disk. It is because a hard-disk drive uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, while an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this type of drives an ideal solution any time speed is needed. This is the reason why SSDs are frequently employed for the Operating System on a computer system and for saving data that is accessed often on hosting servers. Many service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on HDDs, but they use a couple of solid-state drives to cache the more often used data and for that reason, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.
