What Is The Full Form of SSD?

The Full Form of SSD is Solid-state drive. SSD is a solid-state storage device that uses integrated circuit assemblies to store, typically using flash memory data persistently, functioning as secondary storage in the hierarchy of computer storage.

SSD sometimes called as Solid-state device or a Solid-state disk.

Solid-state drives deliver faster load times for applications, files, movies, games or any data. Because of the technology they use, SSDs are lighter and better able to withstand movement and drop page.

Solid-state drives (SSDs) have higher areal storage density, much lower latency & access times, better reliability and higher data-transfer rates than Hard Disk Drives(HDDs).

SSD is a new generation of storage devices used in computers more than HDD. SSDs have comparatively four to nine times higher cost per bit than HDD. Many computer or Laptop manufacturers are providing both HDDs and SSDs. SSDs most units are manufactured by Western Digital(WD), Toshiba, Seagate, Samsung and Sony.

SSDs use flash memory to deliver superior performance and durability. Inside HDDs there are lots of small, moving parts like spinning platters, spindles and magnetic heads which is easy for things to go wrong and we could lose our important files or data. But SSDs are without any moving parts, so it’s more durable, less energy & run cooler.

Full Form of SSD is : Solid-State Drive

History Of SSD :

In 1991 Solid-state drive was introduced by Sandisk, but it was originated earlier in 1978 by Storage Technology Corporation(capacity of 45MB).SSDs are available from 60TB, up to100TB(till2019).

Benefits compare to HDD :

  • Faster load times
  • Higher areal storage density
  • Lower latency & Access times
  • Better reliability
  • Higher data-transfer rates
  • Use less energy
  • Very less noise levels
  • Not require a breather hole

SSD Types :

  • External SSD :-  connect to our computer via a USB or FireWire connection
  • Internal SSD :-   installed within the body (laptop) or tower (desktop) of your compute
