Storage technology is constantly evolving. One of the latest technologies is the Solid State Drive (SSD) - which replaces traditional electro-mechanical parts (i.e. rotating disk platters and read/write heads) with flash memory.
Benefits of SSD storage include:
Due to the nature of the flash memory and how data is currently written, SSD write performance degrades over time. Every write to a solid state drive results in the undesirable action known as “write amplification,” which shortens the life of the drive. But there is something you can do to slow down, if not reverse, the effects of write amplification.
