A Server Based SSD is a Solid State Drive device designed to be plugged into server directly as a SATA or SAS drive. Principal function of a Server Based SSD is to reduce latency be functioning as a highly fast scratch disk for the data.

Server Based SSDs contain no moving parts and works as a high performance storage device and are fast replacing conventional storage disks that need to keep rotating for accessing data. Because of the speed of I/O response, these devices help reduce latency by as much as 90 percent. Usually Server Based SSD is NAND flash-based and is used for accessing databases.
