Solid-state Storage: A Definition

Security Binary DataDo you know what solid-state storage is? According to WhatIs.com, “Solid state storage (SSS) is a type of computer storage media that is made from silicon microchips. SSS stores data electronically instead of magnetically, as spinning hard disk drives or magnetic oxide tape do.”

Instead of reading long strings of data called tracks from a hard disk drive or a magnetic tape, both of which are very slow to access data; solid-state storage uses silicon microchips similar to the random access memory (RAM) storage chips found on computers.

See WhatIs.com’s solid-state storage definition for more information.
