Solid State Drives (SSDs) are data storage devices that contain no moving parts/components and instead use an assembly of integrated circuits (ICs) to store data. Most SSDs use NAND-flash memory chips, which retain data without power. SSDs are used as alternatives to hard disk drives (HDDs). SSDs are used in numerous products, including mobile devices, iPads, laptops, desktop PCs, and notebook PCs, and are faster than HDDs, providing zero latency and reduced application load and boot times.
