SSD stands Solid State Drives. Instead of physical components like a regular drive SSDs are basically big flash drives running as a normal hard drive. Samsung’s marketing team made this video.

They linked 24 SSD using a Raid array creating a very fast computer that can transfer data at 2 Gigabytes per second. That’s Giga Byte. In Gigabit it’s 16 gbps! It opens all Microsoft Office applications at 0.5 seconds and can start 53 programs in 18 seconds!
