How does Apple’s Fusion Drive work?

qa-featured

Apple’s Fusion drive is basically a storage device which is a combination of a Solid State Drive (SSD) and a Hard Disk Drive (HDD). It’s called a “fusion” drive because instead of seeing two separate drives, you get to see only one logical volume. The best part about it is that you won’t need to think in which drive to put anything, just place it in the drive and the OS will automatically move it depending on how often you use a particular program or file.

It costs around $250.

Apple Fusion Drive is basically a combination of a Solid State Drive (SSD) and Hard Disk Drive (HDD), fused into one drive to offer HDD's large capacity and SSD's great performance.

As presented by Phil Schiller in the Apple's Keynote last October 2012, Fusion Drive comes with 128GB flash storage and an optional 1TB or 3TB HDD. It merges the capacities of both drives so it appears as a single volume. It automatically allocates each of all of the files to where it is supposed to be to attain maximum performance. Its price at eBay costs around $1,000 for the 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD combined. Here's the eBay link.
