A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules so as to store data. The solid-state drives are still fairly new and more expensive than the standard hard disk drives (HDD), but they're considerably faster, so they are ordinarily used for Operating Systems and apps on both personal computers and hosting servers. An SSD is recommended as it doesn't have spinning disks that restrict its speed and may even cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. A large number of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all the content which is accessed more frequently will be located on this type of drives, while all the other content will be held on ordinary HDDs. The main reason to use this type of a setup is to balance the price and performance of their Internet hosting platform and to decrease the load on the HDDs resulting from intense reading and writing processes.
