A solid-state drive is incredibly quicker than any normal hard-disk drive. The reason is that an HDD uses rotating disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and hotter they become, while an SDD operates with modules of flash memory, hence there aren't any actually moving parts. The access speeds for an SSD are drastically higher, which makes this kind of drives the right solution any time speed is needed. That's why SSDs are frequently used for the Operating System on a desktop or notebook and for keeping data that's accessed regularly on servers. A lot of providers also use a combination of both drives, so they keep the data on hard-disks, but they use a couple of SSDs to cache the more often used data and consequently, the data loads much quicker while the load on the HDDs is decreased because their disks have to spin less often in order to read and write.
