A solid-state drive (SSD) enhances the performance of every application running on it when compared with a classic hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive functions with multiple interconnected flash memory units, so there are no physical parts to move. In contrast, an HDD functions with spinning disks and any reading or writing process causes the disks to spin, so the speed of an HDD is limited. Because the prices of the two types of drives also differ, a large number of computer systems and web servers are equipped with an SSD for the operating system and random applications, and a hard-disk drive for file storage, thus balancing cost and efficiency. An Internet hosting provider can also use an SSD for caching purposes, thus files which are used repeatedly will be saved on this type of a drive for reaching higher loading speeds and for reducing the reading/writing processes on the HDDs.
