SSD has no moving parts= faster performance, smaller drives

ATA drives, moving parts = slower performance, bigger drives

SSD = Solid State Drive a new technology for hard drive.

ATA = Advanced Technology attachment commonly known as IDE or EIDE when they came out and replaced the MFM, RLL, EDSI hard drives on earlier XT computers. And XT machines like the 286 on up to todays machines that are running Pentium, AMD processors. There is also on the more common motherboards SATA, Sata 2 and possibly Sata 3 drives. Some motherboards still have both EIDE and SATA drives connections on them so you can use either one or both of them on a typical Desktop/workstation. Or just IDE or SATA on Laptops computers.
