Solid-State Storage (SSS)

Definition - What does Solid-State Storage (SSS) mean?

Solid-state storage (SSS) is a type of storage technique that employs storage devices built using silicon microchip based storage architecture.

Solid-state storage is designed on the architecture and storage mechanism of volatile and non–volatile flash memory and stores data electronically by passing electrical charge across the memory chips.

Techopedia explains Solid-State Storage (SSS)

Solid-state storage gets its name because such devices don’t contain any mechanical or moving parts. This differs from the traditional electro-mechanical storage devices that read and write data from a rotating magnetic disk.

Solid-state storage is built on flash memory architecture, and therefore provides faster data read/write operation, consumes less power and is more resilient under physical shock. Solid-state storage media is developed using nonvolatile NAND and DRAM flash memory structure.
