Solid-state storage Definitions

  • C

    cache memory

    Cache memory, also called CPU memory, is random access memory (RAM) that a computer microprocessor can access more quickly than it can access regular RAM.

  • D

    DIMM (dual in-line memory module)

    A DIMM (dual in-line memory module) is the standard memory card used in servers and PCs.

  • F

    flash memory

    Flash memory is a type of nonvolatile semiconductor memory that is widely used for storage and data transfer in consumer devices and enterprise systems.

  • flash storage

    Flash-based storage, based on flash memory, is used for data repositories, storage systems and consumer devices, such as USB drives, smartphones and solid-state drives.

  • N

    NAND flash memory

    NAND flash memory is a type of non-volatile storage technology that does not require power to retain data.

  • non-volatile memory (NVM)

    Non-volatile memory (NVMe) is a semiconductor technology that does not require a continuous power supply to retain the data or program code stored in a computing device.

  • nonvolatile storage (NVS)

    Also see our Fast Guide to RAM. Nonvolatile (sometimes written as "non-volatile") storage (NVS) - also known as nonvolatile memory or nonvolatile random access memory (NVRAM) - is a form of static random access memory whose contents are saved when a computer is turned off or loses its external power source.

  • NOR flash memory

    NOR flash memory is a type of non-volatile storage technology that does not require power to retain data.

  • S

    solid-state storage

    Solid-state storage refers to non-volatile storage based on flash memory. This type of storage is used in solid-state drives.
