In the previous article we explained what the whole concept was behind the new storage innovation that has been dubbed the SSHD (Solid State Hybrid Drive). We’ll now be going into the drive in further detail this time and all doubts about the drive and the underlying technology should be hopefully erased after you’ve gone through this one.
A little about SSD caching
When SSDs started coming into the market they were pretty expensive and though they are more affordable now the price/GB ratio is still higher than normal hard drives. Around the same time manufacturers started getting innovative with SSDs and we soon saw the introduction of SSD caching. The feature worked like this, a separate software was installed to monitor which applications are more commonly used on your computer and depending on the frequency of usage that particular software would get cached onto the SSD. So the next time the software would be loaded onto the system memory from the SSD instead of the hard drive. The files on the hard drive would still be there so you need not worry about losing those. Simply put, your commonly used applications would load much faster.
