Answer: What is the differences between the term SSTable and LSM Tree

Probably one of the best explanations of SSTables and LSM-Trees for mortals is given by Martin Kleppmann in his "Designing Data-Intensive Applications" book. These data structures are explained in chapter 3, "Storage and Retrieval", pages 69 through 79. It's a really great read, I would recommend the whole book!
