What Hard Drive Do I Need
What is an SSD?An SSD is a type of storage device that doesn’t have moving parts that provide user with longer battery life, improved shock resistance and faster data transfer than HDDs. The graph to the right outlines the difference in performance by the SSD classification.
Benefits of a solid-state drive
- Better for mobile users
- Improved performance
- Lightweight and cooler than standard hard drives
- Outperforms 10,000 rpm HDDs in read/write speeds
- More expensive than HDDs
|For speed, performance and lower latency||Choose PCie SSDs followed by SATA SSDs||e.g., Gaming, AutoCAD, Designing, Data Science, AI algorithms|
|For storage capacity and advanced security||Choose FIPS encrypted drives||e.g., Storing sensitive large documents, videos and securing content in high-risk areas|
|For high storage capacity and low costs||Chose traditional HDD||e.g., home media centers, large back-ups, video storage|
|For low power consumption, low costs and smaller/thinner form factors||Choose eMMC drives||e.g., thin-clients, Chromebook, smartphones, cloud-OS based devices such as Windows S and Chromium|
