While Standard hard disk drives (HDDs) use spinning platters to record data, SSDs use flash memory. Many users are already familiar with flash memory from the memory cards used in smart phones and digital cameras. SSDs also do not contain moving parts which increases read and write times. Hard disk drives can only perform hundreds of input/output operations per second, while A2 Hosting’s SSDs perform thousands every second.
