The Solid State Drive was developed in the early 1980s but due to cost it was mainly used by the military for enhanced performance in their large databases. This growing technology has since expanding to our everyday life with phones cameras and iPods. With the speed ratio of the HDD at 5,000 to 10,000 micro-seconds and the SSD 35 to 105 micro-seconds, which has made it standard for defence applications. With the known reliability by cutting down heat, vibration and using less energy from no moving parts, most of the mobile units used will be using this design. A recently developed inductive coupling wireless communication technology ism purported to have the capacity to reduce SSDs internal wiring requirement and use of power by half. The changing of the market and the cost of producing HDD can exceed SDD by costing twice as much. The capacity with a conventional HDD is about 2 TB and Hatachi is aiming to produce 4 TB using new nanometer recording technology.
Companies Investing in the Future of SSD Drive
With increasingly more companies using SSD for communication and wireless devices you can expect to see this technology in most of your companies computers and mobile devices in the coming years. Banks, police and your local counties are implementing this technology into their systems for processing information twice as fast is was previpously possible. The military, like the Air Force, Navy and Army have been using this technology in their computers since the early 1980s. So most of your military applications such as satellites, naval vesicles and Missiles are using the SSD to relay processed information quicker. Before too long the SDD technology will replace all of the HDD hard drives due to their lower cost ands increased life expectancy. With the speed, cost efficacy and energy savings it is no wonder companies are investing in switching their networks to a SSD hard drive.
