A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media which uses flash modules to save info. The solid-state drives are still relatively new and more pricey compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), but they're faster, so they are ordinarily employed for Operating Systems and apps on both desktops and servers. An SSD is recommended as it doesn't have spinning disks that limit its speed and could cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. Lots of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all the site content which is accessed more often will be kept on such drives, while all the other content will be held on conventional HDDs. The reason to use such a configuration is to balance the price and performance of their hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs resulting from intense reading and writing processes.
