An SSD is a non-volatile memory, running in an electronic manner use flash memory chips. SSDs have emerged as a good alternative to meet the high performance needs of enterprises, as it works in countless products, including mobile devices, iPods, cameras, laptops and desktop computers. Compared to HDDs, SSDs provide lower seek times, fewer mechanical delays, and lower fault rates. Therefore, they provide a very fast random read.

SSD Storage Advantage

While traditional and all flash storage arrays have their place, SSD hybrid storage blends the best of both worlds. It uses traditional hard disks to store the bulk of the data and flash arrays to store the most commonly used data. This results in a satisfying blend of capacity, performance, and cost. In addition, you can easily add capacity as needed. Many SSD hybrid storage systems include advanced features that address compliance issues, data protection and recovery, scalability, compatibility, and more. Look into SSD hybrid storage for the best blend of performance, price, and capacity.

SSD Form Factors

Solid state drives (SSD) are most frequently packaged into a standard 2.5 inch hard drive casing utilizing a SATA connection; however they are also available in a PCI Express card format. This format allows more data channels to be used, resulting in yet faster transfer speeds. Some laptops also have SSD drives soldered directly to the motherboard to help save space; this however can limit future expandability.

In an everyday use case, it is much more likely that data is written and read from random locations on the disk. There are no moving parts, and all the information is equally accessible. This drastically cuts down on random read and writes latency.

SSD Failure

For computer experts and users around the globe, SSD drives, having no moving parts, can provide fast, reliable, energy efficient and stable data storage. However, like any other hardware, they can go wrong from time to time and it can be helpful to know some of the potential drawbacks when it comes to SSD drive.

A recent study by the researchers of Ohio State University and HP Labs brought to light five different types of failures in SSDs when exposed to power faults: shorn writes, metadata corruption, bit corruption, unserializable writes, and dead devices.

Physical faults with the SSD itself such as simple careless workmanship in the soldered parts, causing connections to break or become oxidized.

Data corruption within the SSD can cause segments of the drive to fail, leading to a loss of data. This includes bad sectors, damage from viruses and corruption of data and information.

Firmware upgrades can sometimes fail causing the drive to stop working, though this is quite rare.
