SSDNow E100 Drive

Kingston’s enterprise class E100 solid-state drive is ideal for mission-critical environments such as datacenters, which need to be up and running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. E100 combines impressive endurance and reliability with power fail 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 a 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 virtualization projects by increasing the number of virtual systems supported using the existing hardware infrastructure.


  • Multiple capacities – the right capacity to meet your storage standards
  • Endurance – Data Integrity Protection featuring DuraClass Technology
  • Dependable – RAISE® for advanced data reliability
  • Durable – DuraWrite® optimizes writes to extend endurance
  • Guaranteed – three-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability

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.

Maintaining Performance and Endurance via Over-provisioning (OP)

To avoid a scenario where the SSD is filled to full capacity with invalid pages, over-provisioning is used by the SSD controller’s garbage collection function as a temporary workspace to manage scheduled valid page merges and reclaim blocks filled with invalid (or deleted) pages.
