The difference between the SSD and HDD is, SSD has no moving parts whereas the HDD has moving parts. The SSD is faster then the HDD by significant amount. They do kinda serve the same purpose.

An SSD is a HDD, just a different type of one. The traditional hard drive is basically a spinning platter which is read by a magnetic head zipping across it. An SSD uses NAND flash memory, like the kind found in USB sticks. Both do the same thing, store data, they simply do it using different means.
