A solid-state drive is really quicker than any conventional hard-disk drive. It is because a hard-disk drive employs spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, while an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, so there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes these drives the best solution every time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a laptop or computer and for saving data that is accessed often on servers. Many providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard drives, but they use several SSDs in order to cache the more often used data and consequently, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks need to spin less frequently to read and write.
