    SAS SSD (Serial-Attached SCSI solid-state drive)

    A SAS solid-state drive (SSD) is a NAND flash-based storage or caching device that uses the serial-attached SCSI (SAS) interface to connect to the host computer and fits into the same slot as a hard disk drive (HDD).

    read-intensive SSD (read-intensive solid-state drive)

    A read-intensive solid-state drive (SSD) is a NAND flash-based storage or caching device used with applications that write data infrequently, in contrast to SSDs that target write-intensive workloads.
