Hard Drives

flash driveWhen it comes to hard drives, information is only as powerful as our ability to access it. In a sense, a stockpile of data has its uses, but it is the correlation and aggregation of statistics or files that create its true worth. Getting information quickly is only half the equation. The other side of the issue is storage space.

Hard drive space is relatively economical, considering how much is being offered; a terabyte can cost a pittance when stacked against other components. Traditional SATA drives are spinning discs with mountains of information. It’s when we move into the territory of flash memory drives, however, that the discussion changes.

There are a couple of different standards for flash memory; the two discussed here are solid state drives (or SSD hard drives) and disc on module SATA drives. Both approach the issue of data storage from a similar standpoint; using flash memory to store data increases write and read speeds and provides other benefits over traditional HDDs. But there are also differences worth noting. Read on to learn more!

SSD Hard Drive and Disc On Module SATA Similarities

In the sense of pure data storage, the most defining feature of these two standards is the blistering speed at which they can read and Read the full article →
