What's The Difference Between RAM and SSD?

When checking the definition of RAM, some users might get confused. What's the difference between RAM and an SSD? Their function sounds so similar. Here, we will tell you the difference between these two.

RAM is your computer's main memory. You can regard it as a workspace where the computer processes work. It is volatile storage that the server can use to store information needed for a short period.

SSD is the storage space of your computer. The storage in a dedicated server is non-volatile, meaning that when the server is turned off, this information remains stored indefinitely. 

So, we can conclude that the main difference between RAM and SSD is that the RAM is short-term memory, and the SSD is long-term memory.
