A solid-state drive (SSD) improves the performance of each app running on it when compared to a regular hard-disk drive (HDD). The reason is that a solid-state drive functions with multiple interconnected flash memory modules, so there are no physical parts to move. In comparison, a hard disk works by using spinning disks and every reading or writing process causes the disks to move, so the speed of an HDD is restricted. Since the cost of the two types of drives also differ, numerous personal computers and web servers are provided with an SSD for the OS and random applications, and an HDD for data storage, in this way balancing cost and effectiveness. An Internet hosting provider could also use a solid-state drive for caching purposes, thus files that are accessed very often will be located on this type of a drive for reaching better loading speeds and for minimizing the reading/writing processes on the hard-disk drives.
