HDD (Hard Disk Drive) Types
⭕ Hard disk types
◻ PATA: Parallel ATA (PATA) is an older interface that uses a parallel connection to transfer data
between the disk and the computer. PATA is also known as IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics).
◻ SATA: Serial ATA (SATA) is a newer interface that uses a serial connection to transfer data between the disk and the computer. SATA is faster than PATA and is the most common interface used for hard drives today.
◻ SCSI: Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) is an older interface that is used for high performance devices, such as tape drives and disk arrays. SCSI is more expensive than PATA .
◻ SAS: Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) is a newer interface that is similar to SCSI, but it uses a serial connection. SAS is faster than SCSI and is becoming more popular for high-performance devices.
◻ SSD: Solid-state drive (SSD) is a type of storage device that uses flash memory instead of spinning disks. SSDs are much faster than traditional hard drives and are becoming increasingly popular for use in computers and other devices.
