A solid-state drive is considerably faster than any normal hard disk. It is because an HDD works by using rotating disks, that can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they become, whereas an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, therefore there aren't any physically moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are a lot higher, which makes this kind of drives an ideal solution in case speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are often used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for saving data that is used repeatedly on servers. Numerous service providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on hard drives, but they use one or more solid-state drives to cache the more frequently used data and as a consequence, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered since their disks have to spin less frequently to read and write.
