  • SSDNow E100 Drive

    Kingston’s enterprise-class E100 solid-state drive is ideal for mission-critical environments such as datacentres, which need to be up and running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. E100 combines impressive endurance and reliability with power-failure support to ensure uninterrupted operation. E100 offers 10X endurance over typical client SSDs, with 30K program/erase cycles on E100 vs. 3K program/erase cycles on client SSDs. It features an SF-2500 enterprise-class processor, DuraWrite for maximum read/write performance and endurance and RAISE for advanced error correction. With speed read/write performance delays of large data sets, E100 helps solve the IO latency bottlenecks in servers. It enables larger enterprise virtualisation projects by increasing the number of virtual systems supported using the existing hardware infrastructure.

  • SSDNow E50 Drive

    Increase IOPs without sacrificing data integrity.
    Kingston’s SSDNow E50 features high IOPs and bandwidth performance to solve I/O latencies and bottlenecks and increase your server’s performance. E50’s 6Gbps SATA interface provides max bandwidth over 500MB/s read/write. This drive is built with MLC Sync NAND and is rated at 60,000 read/write IOPS versus an average IOPS rating of 300 for a 15K SAS HDD.

    E50’s advanced data integrity protection gives you peace of mind by ensuring a longer life for your data and your drive. DuraWrite™ extends the life of the SSD by efficiently reducing the Flash writes without sacrificing data integrity. RAISE™ technology provides superior protection against uncorrectable errors, while overprovisioning and advanced wear-levelling ensure consistent performance and wear over the life of the drive.

    SSDNow E50 also features intelligent power failure protection to prevent data loss in case of a power failure. It’s backed by a three-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston® reliability.

Enterprise-Level Server SSDs

Server Virtualisation

Random I/O and high data access demands can be severely impacted by traditional mechanical hard drives in a virtualised host. The retrieval of data and servicing of enterprise applications and users have become limiting factors in overall system performance. Kingston solid-state drives (SSDs) are the ideal storage accelerator solution for virtualised workloads and contribute to a fundamental goal of virtualisation by doing more with less.

Cloud Computing

As cloud-based storage becomes increasingly popular, new demands are being placed on the storage infrastructure. A tiered storage model ensures that an organisation has the right data on the right tier to maximise not only cost but also performance. The fast-retrieval capabilities of SSDs enable cloud services to operate at peak efficiency for each type of data being processed.

IT Applications

Kingston’s SATA 3.0 Enterprise SSDs provide users with very fast data access for a wide variety of enterprise applications. They can be used as direct attached storage replacements for hard disk drives in a server or reside in external arrays to speed up storage-bound applications.
