Practically all of today's PCs have a hard disk and one or more floppy disk drives. These 'media' allow the computer to load the files it needs to run a certain program. Unfortunately, there are circumstances in which the use of these magnetic/mechanical media is problematic. In cases where shock, vibration, large temperature variations or an otherwise electrically hostile environment force you to turn away from the 'usual' disk drives, the solid-state disk discussed in this article is a very good alternative.
