The challenge

Hostmein needed a reliable performance solution for their servers to keep the best-in-class service offering but remain competitive. They were looking to upgrade their server’s storage from HDD to full SSD for direct attached storage and for their software defined storage applications. Another critical aspect was data security as HDD/SSD storage cannot leave their facilities without being physically destroyed, which most of the hardware vendors would not offer as a service if a replacement were required.

The solution

Kingston offered a full technical review process and provided a solution based on their hardware with our Ask an Expert service. Kingston sent proof of concept DC500 SSDs to allow them to test in their own infrastructure. Kingston’s DC500 SSDs were compatible with their Dell and HP Servers that they are currently operating in and are performing well.

By partnering with Kingston, Hostmein were now able to provide a cutting edge and reliable solution to their customer’s and improve hardware performance. Hostmein reduced their overall server TCO and lowered their data center power cost by 60% by replacing their high RPM mechanical HDD with Kingston’s DC500 SSD which helped towards their environmental initiatives. Discover why Hostmein chose Kingston to support their customer SLAs with a reliable high-performance storage solution.
