SSD stands for solid-state drive. SSDs are made of NAND Flash or DRAM memory chips instead of discs and other mechanical structures in traditional hard drives (HDD).

HDD is made from rotating discs, a technology that appeared in the mid-1950s. Data is written to and read from these discs or discs via a motion reader. HDD is a mechanical device with many moving parts and is therefore easy to encounter mechanical damage and malfunction due to environmental conditions such as heat, cold, vibration and vibration. For SSDs, discs and readers are replaced with memory chips similar to common USB, SD and CompactFlash products. SSD does not have moving parts, so there is almost no common spin delay in HDD. In addition, SSDs are less sensitive to environmental damage than HDD. SSD is designed to be the next generation of popular data storage, so it has the same size and uses SATA connection like the current HDD generation.

Although the SSD market is growing and SSDs are becoming more popular, this device is still a relatively new product. As with other new technologies, it is only a matter of time before sales reach a certain level that production costs decrease. In the last few years, the price difference between SSD and HDD has been narrowed a lot.

This question is difficult to answer because no two systems are exactly the same and the performance can be affected by the operating system, driver, application being used, processor speed and configuration. as well as many other factors. There are a number of websites and magazines that have conducted comparisons of SSD and HDD and they have found that SSDs are much faster. For example, if we compare random read performance, SSDs have 200% greater speed than high-performance HDD. A noteworthy point is that SSDs are not affected by physical limitations like regular hard drives. HDD discs have a circular design (like a CD) and the data in the center of the circle is accessed more slowly than the data on the outer edge. SSD has uniform access time across the entire storage drive. HDD performance is also affected by data fragmentation while SSD performance is not significantly affected even if the data is not stored close to each other.

The only factor to choose HDD is the cost per gigabyte, which is why the HDDs on the market are 500GB or more while the SSD has a capacity of 30GB or more. Faspeed currently offers SSD with 30GB to 960GB capacity. Traditional HDDs are the best option if your main need is to store data up to terabytes in capacity and if you prioritize performance, SSDs are a great choice. Usually SSD will be used as a boot drive containing the operating system and applications and the HDD is used to store data.

Faspeed solid-state hard drive is made from NAND Flash memory.

All Faspeed solid-state drives operate independently of the operating system and will run on any system that supports standard SATA interfaces.

Users can install Faspeed solid-state drives on any system that supports SATA II or III communication. (SATA 3Gb / sec and 6Gb / sec)

Yes, SSD series K, F, H, M, T can be used in RAID configurations, however Faspeed recommends that you use K-line SSD for RAID on the server.

Usually systems and controllers SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) also support SATA devices. Faspeed recommends that users view the documentation that comes with the system or the controller to make sure both SATA and SAS drives are compatible. If they are compatible, you can use Faspeed solid-state drives without problems.

Of course. Faspeed provides an SSD with an upgrade kit that includes all the tools needed to replace the HDD on a laptop or desktop computer with a Faspeed solid-state drive as well as an easy-to-use software and operating system. important data.

IOPS (Input / Output Operations per Second) is a unit of measurement that represents the number of transactions per second that a storage device (HDD or SSD) can handle. IOPS should not be confused with the read / write speed and server workload.

No, the SSD does not need to perform disk reorganization at all.In fact, disk reorganization will reduce the life of the SSD.
If you have already set up the system to automate disk reorganization, you should cancel, disable, or shut down the feature when using SSD.Some operating systems automatically reorganize the disk, so you should disable this feature when using a Faspeed Solid State Drive.

SSD drives use NAND Flash memory as the storage medium. One of the disadvantages of NAND Flash is that Flash cells will eventually wear out. In order to extend the memory’s useable life, the SSD’s memory controller employs various algorithms that spread the storage of data across all memory cells. This prevents any one cell or group of cells from being “over used.” The use of wear-levelling technology is widespread and is very effective.

To increase performance and endurance, some SSD manufacturers will reserve some of the drive capacity from the user area and dedicate it to the controller. This practice is known as overprovisioning and will increase the performance and longevity of the SSD. All current Faspeed SSDs using SMI® controllers feature overprovisioning, so our typical capacities are 60, 120, 240 and 480GB.

The NAND Flash used in USB, SD cards and SSDs all have endurance limits meaning one cannot continue to write to them forever. Flash based products will eventually wear out however with features like wear-levelling and overprovisioning an SSD will typically last longer than the system it was installed into. We measure drive endurance in TBW Terabytes Written and depending on drive capacity one can write hundreds of Terbaytes up to Petabytes. Performance of the SSD will remain the same throughout the life of the drive.

All Faspeed SSDs use an intelligent and efficient garbage collection process that improves drives life with little impact on Flash endurance and is invisible to the user.

Faspeed solid-state drives integrate advanced wear-levelling techniques that incorporate a block picking algorithm capable of extending flash endurance and optimizing drive life. This unique wear-levelling ensures that the individual Flash memory blocks are consumed at a very balanced rate, not to exceed a 2% difference between the most often written blocks and least written.

SMART is an acronym for Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology and is part of the ATA standard.
SMART attributes are used to measure drive health and are activated to alert users (administrators, software programs, etc.) about imminent failures.

Yes, Faspeed SSDs can be used in USB, e-SATA, Thunderbolt and Firewire external enclosures. Note if the user chooses to enable a password via the ATA Security command, the drive will not be accessible via external enclosure.

Please confirm the CPU cooler power connector.

If you feel the general boot speed is slow, it is recommended to check whether the hard disk or CPU cooler is installed correctly or not.
