A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to store info. The solid-state drives are still relatively new and more pricey compared to classic hard disk drives (HDD), yet they're faster, so they are often used for Operating Systems and apps on both home PCs and servers. An SSD is recommended because it doesn't have spinning disks that restrict its speed and can even cause overheating like it may happen with an HDD. Lots of companies employ SSDs for caching purposes, so all the website content which is accessed more often will be stored on this kind of drives, while all other content will be stored on standard HDDs. The main reason to use this kind of a setup is to balance the cost and performance of their hosting platform and to lower the load on the HDDs caused by numerous reading and writing processes.
