Kingston has announced plans to begin shipping of its DC1000M 7.68TB U.2 NVMe in June, while the 7.68 TB 500R data centre and DC450R SATA SSDs are available now. Both new SSD series are designed to provide additional storage while implementing strict QoS to ensure predictable I/O and low latency for data centres deploying both SATA and NVMe.
The DC500R 7.68 TB SSD from Kingston is a VMWare Ready SSD designed for read-intensive applications such as virtual desktop infrastructure, webservers and real-time analytics. With low latency and read/write speeds of up to 555 MB/s and 520 MB/s respectively, to ensure reliable, high performance that data centres can deploy with confidence.
DC450R SSDs are also focused on read-intensive applications and optimised for data centres looking for a cost-effective option without write-intensive specifications. This series is ideal for content delivery, software-defined storage architectures and edge computing, with sequential read/write speeds of up to 560MBs/504MBs and Steady-State 4k read/write of up to 99,000/19,000 IOPS with a 2 million-hour MTBF lifespan.
Kingston’s DC1000M is a hot-pluggable U.2 2.5-inch form factor SSD that allows for easy integration with the latest generation of servers and storage arrays equipped with PCIe and U.2 backplanes. DC1000M is an enterprise-grade SSD with features including power loss and end-to-end path protection, as well as telemetry monitoring to ensure increased data reliability. The 7.68 TB version shipping in June is capable of sequential read/write speeds of up to 3,100MBs/2800MBs and Steady-state 4k read/write of up to 485,000/210,000 IOPS.
