DC500 Series SSDs Approved Across vSAN Environment and vSphere Servers

 

Sunbury-on-Thames, UK – October 14th, 2019 Kingston Digital Europe Co LLP, the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today announced its enterprise-grade DC500 series SSDs has achieved VMware Ready status. This designation indicates that, after a detailed validation process, the Kingston DC500R and DC500M enterprise SSDs have achieved VMware’s highest level of endorsement and are supported on VMware vSAN and vSphere for production environments.

“We are pleased that the Kingston DC500 series SSDs qualify for the VMware Ready logo, signifying to customers that it has met specific VMware interoperability standards and works effectively with VMware cloud infrastructure. This signifies to customers that Kingston’s enterprise SSDs can be deployed in production environments with confidence and can speed time to value within customer environments,” said Kristen Edwards, director, Technology Alliance Partner Program, VMware.

            “Kingston is committed to creating best-in-class enterprise SSDs that deliver high levels of sustained performance that is more importantly both predictable and consistent for enterprise workloads,” said Tony Hollingsbee, SSD Business Manager, Kingston EMEA. “This certification from VMware gives customers the confidence to leverage the performance and value that our DC500 series brings for both read-intensive and mixed-use applications including virtual desktop infrastructure, operational databases, web serving and data analytics.”

Installed in vSAN environments and vSphere servers, the DC500R and DC500M drives deliver superior Quality of Service (QoS) for read-intensive and mixed-use applications including virtualization. Kingston data center series SSDs are designed using comprehensive QoS test scripts developed in-house that measure IO and latency patterns at varying block sizes and queue depths and then tuned to our strict specification for consistency. Both DC500R and DC500M are tuned and tested to deliver low latency out to six 9s (99.9999 percent) of consistency while delivering high throughput and predictable IO.

The VMware Ready program is a co-branding benefit of the Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program that makes it easy for customers to identify partner products certified to work with VMware cloud infrastructure. Customers can use these products and solutions to lower project risks and realize cost savings over custom built solutions. With thousands of members worldwide, the VMware TAP program includes best-of-breed technology partners with the shared commitment to bring the best expertise and business solution for each unique customer need.
