ABSTRACT

Speed is the most important factor while considering performance of a computer system. Faster processor leads to faster processing of data but data has to be fetched from a secondary storage device such as HDD. Therefore this speed mismatch causes performance issues. Although over time processor technologies have improved a lot but the main bottleneck is the speed of secondary storage ie HDD. The main reason that HDD are slow is because they contain rotating platter and head which seeks to read data from it.

In this presentation I am trying to elaborate the future technology ie going to replace HDD. SSD is the faster, safer and better alternative to HDD. SSD refers to solid state drive means it contains no moving parts, it’s a storage solution made entirely of semiconductor chips. The main issues that remain to be addressed are its High cost and a still premature technology.
