A solid-state drive is considerably quicker than any conventional hard-disk drive. It is because a hard-disk drive uses spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more information is read and written, the slower and hotter they become, while an SDD works with modules of flash memory, therefore there are no actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are significantly higher, which makes this type of drives a recommended solution when speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a home PC and for keeping data that's used frequently on web servers. A large number of service providers also use a combination of both drives, so they store the data on HDDs, but they use several solid-state drives to cache the more often used data and due to this fact, the data loads a lot quicker while the load on the HDDs is lowered because their disks have to spin less often to read and write.
