Kingston Technology has today introduced its new Data Center 500 Series SSDs range of storage which have been specifically optimised for read intensive applications, such as boot up, web servers, virtual desktop infrastructure, operational databases, real-time analytics and more. Available in capacities of 480GB, 960GB, 1.92TB and 3.84TB the new solid state drives offer “performance, endurance and reliability” say Kingston.
Data Center DC500 Enterprise SSD Features & Specifications:
Optimized for read-intensive applications (DC500R): Responsiveness from low latency and consistent I/O performance delivers businesses the QoS needed in demanding read-centric workloads.
Optimized for mixed-use applications (DC500M): An exceptional balance of consistent I/O delivery and high read and write IOPS performance to manage a wide range of transactional workloads.
Reduce application latencies: Data center’s hosting databases and various web-based applications can leverage the predictable I/O and latency performance.
Data Integrity Protection: ECC protection with advanced read/disturb management safeguards against data corruption for end-to-end data protection.
On-board (PLP) Power Loss Protection: Reduce the possibility of data loss and/or corruption on ungraceful power fails via power capacitors and firmware.
