Computer based holography such as electro-holography and digital holography advances because the resolution of an imaging display and a sensing device such as a liquid crystal display (LCD) and a charge coupled device (CCD) becomes higher. A higher resolution of imaging device requires the more powerful computing system. On the other hand, a solid state drive (SSD) develops as a storage device of computers. We studied the effectiveness of SSD for a large-scale digital holography calculation. When the calculation data scale exceeds the main memory capacity, the SSD system showed better performance compared with the hard disk drive (HDD) system at computational speed and stability.
