Types of Solid-State Drives

There are several types of solid-state drives (SSDs), including:


These are the most common types of SSD and use the SATA interface to connect to a computer. They are often used as a replacement for traditional hard drives.


These SSDs use the NVMe interface, which is faster than SATA, and are often used in high-performance computers and servers.


These SSDs use the SAS interface and are often used in enterprise storage systems.


These SSDs use the PCIe interface, which is faster than SATA and NVMe, and are often used in high-performance computers and servers.


These SSDs are similar to SATA SSDs, but are smaller in size, and are often used in ultrabooks and other compact devices.

M.2 SSDs

These SSDs are similar to mSATA SSDs, but are even smaller in size and are often used in ultrabooks and other compact devices.

read-intensive SSDs

These SSDs are optimized for read-intensive applications, such as data warehousing, video-on-demand (VOD) systems, and online transaction processing (OLTP) systems.

Write-intensive SSDs

These SSDs are optimized for write-intensive applications, such as logging and caching. The 868830-B21 HPE 3.84TB SATA 6GBPS SC Read Intensive DS SSD is a read-intensive SSD that uses the SATA interface and has a capacity of 3.84TB.
