Enterprise-Level Server SSDs
Server Virtualization

Random I/O and high data access demands can be severely impacted by traditional mechanical hard drives in a virtualized host. Retrieving data and servicing enterprise applications and users have become limiting factors in overall system performance. Kingston solid-state drives (SSDs) are the ideal storage accelerator solution for virtualized workloads and contribute to a fundamental goal of virtualization 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 organization has the right data on the right tier to maximize not only cost but also performance. The fast-retrieving 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.

* Benchmark scores, results and test methodology stated in published reviews and articles are at the sole discretion of the reviewer and website or publication. Individual results may vary due to the revision of hardware, host hardware, software and usage.

  1. Please note: Some of the listed capacity on a Flash storage device is used for formatting and other functions and is thus not available for data storage. As such, the actual available capacity for data storage is less than what is listed on the products. For more information, go to Kingston's Flash Memory Guide at media.kingston.com/pdfs/FlashMemGuide.pdf

  2. Speeds provided are sequential. Based on "out-of-box performance". Speed may vary due to host hardware, software and usage.

  3. TRIM supported on drives with firmware 515ABBFO and newer.

  4. Total Bytes Written (TBW) refers to how much total data can be written to an SSD for a given workload before the drive reaches its endurance limits.

  5. Drives Writes Per Day (DWPD)
