Solid State Drives (SSDs) come in a number of different form factors and are available with different interface connects. A PCIe SSD is an SSD storage device that is connected to a computing system via a PCIe interface. Similarly, SATA is another common interface in computing system for storage and peripheral connectivity.

In the debate between SSD vs HDD, the benefits of SSDs of spinning disk hard disk drives (HDDs) are well understood, with significant performance gains for read and write speeds. Perhaps less well understood is the difference between interfaces used to connect SSDs, which is what this Enterprise Storage Forum guide is all about.
