    3.5" SSD (3.5 solid-state drive)

    A 3.5 solid-state drive (SSD) is a data storage device designed for the 3.5-inch hard disk drive (HDD) form factor. It fits into the drive slot as a same-sized HDD in a portable computer, enterprise server, or storage system.

  • A

    array-based SSD

    An array-based SSD is a solid state drive manufactured in a form factor that can be installed in a typical storage array.

  • E

    enterprise SSD (enterprise solid-state drive)

    An enterprise SSD (also known as an enterprise solid-state drive or enterprise solid-state disk) stores data persistently or caches data temporarily in nonvolatile memory and generally provides higher performance and greater endurance than consumer or client SSDs.

  • H

    HDD form factor (hard disk drive form factor)

    HDD form factor is the size or geometry of a hard disk drive, determining the device’s compatibility with the drive bays in a storage array or enclosure, server, portable computer or other computing device.

  • M

    mSATA SSD (mSATA solid-state drive)

    An mSATA SSD is a small-form-factor solid-state drive designed for portable devices such as laptops and tablets. Advantages include low power and vibration resistance.

  • N

    NVDIMM (Non-Volatile Dual In-line Memory Module)

    An NVDIMM (non-volatile dual in-line memory module) is hybrid computer memory that retains data during a service outage.

  • R

    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.

  • S

    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).

  • server-based SSD

    A server-based SSD is a solid state drive that may be manufactured in a PCI Express form factor.

  • Skyera

    Skyera was an all-flash array vendor that Western Digital's HGST subsidiary purchased in an all-cash transaction in December 2014.

  • SolidFire

    SolidFire is a Boulder, Colorado-based vendor of all-flash storage arrays that was acquired by NetApp on Dec. 21, 2015.
