Abbreviated as HHDD, a hybrid hard disk drive is a large-buffer computer hard drive that uses non-volatile flash memory (also known as NVRAM) to cache data during normal use. Hybrid hard drives uses 128MB (or more) of high speed flash memory, which is embedded directly on the hard drive itself, to serve as a fast cache for booting and saving data. When booting the PC, the operating system loads data from the flash memory first, speeding boot-up times and it also removes the need to quickly spin up the drive, which saves on power consumption as well. HHDs released by both Samsung and Seagate in 2007 are also called ReadyDrive (the name used by Microsoft) and it is a Windows Vista only technology. The first hybrid hard disk drives were 2.5-inch drives for notebooks.

- hybrid routing protocol
Hybrid Routing, commonly referred to as balanced-hybrid routing, is a combination of distance-vector routing, which works by sharing its knowledge of the entire network with its neighbors and link-state routing which works by having the routers tell every router on the network about its closest neighbors. Hybrid Routing is a third classification of routing algorithm. […]
- a Hyperlink
An element in an electronic document that links to another place in the same document or to an entirely different document. Typically, you click on the hyperlink to follow the link. Hyperlinks are the most essential ingredient of all hypertext systems, including the World Wide Web.
An extension to hypertext that supports linking graphics, sound, and video elements in addition to text elements. The World Wide Web is a partial hypermedia system since is supports graphical hyperlinks and links to sound and video files. New hypermedia systems under development will allow objects in computer videos to be hyperlinked.
