Kingston Releases DC1000M U.2 NVMe SSDs for Mixed-use in Data Centers

Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today announced the availability of DC1000M, a new U.2 data center NVMe PCIe SSD. DC1000M is designed to support a wide range of data-intensive enterprise workloads, including Cloud computing, web hosting, high-performance computing (HPC), virtual infrastructures, artificial intelligence and deep learning applications. DC1000M joins the recently released DC1000B NVMe boot drive, the VMware Ready DC500 series SATA SSDs and DC450R to form the most complete range of superior enterprise-class data center storage solutions in the market.

"Mission critical services and Cloud-based applications depend not only on lightning-fast IOPS and bandwidth, but also on the consistency and predictability of the data being serviced," said Keith Schimmenti, enterprise SSD business manager, Kingston. "DC1000M provides the stability and low latency for the evolving data center, while powering the workloads that require one drive write per day (1 DWPD) endurance."
DC1000M is an affordable and powerful NVMe drive for data centers. Customers looking to make the leap from SATA/SAS SSDs to NVMe will enjoy the similarities in implementation, but with much faster data rates and lower latency. The drive features high-storage capacity and best in-class enterprise performance. DC1000M offers a high-performance Gen 3.0 x4 NVMe PCIe interface, enabling high throughput and low latency on standardized platforms, delivering up to 540K IOPS of random read performance and over 3 GB/s of throughput. DC1000M is built to strict QoS requirements to ensure predictable random IO performance, as well as predictable latencies over a wide range of server workloads.

The widely accepted U.2 (2.5") form factor design works seamlessly with the latest generation servers and storage arrays utilizing PCIe and U.2 backplanes. It's hot pluggable, which makes the challenges of serviceable PCIe storage an issue of the past. Additionally, the drive includes enterprise-class features such as end-to-end data path protection, power-loss protection (PLP) and telemetry monitoring for increased data center reliability. DC1000M is available in 960 GB, 1.92 TB, 3.84 TB and 7.68 TB capacities; and, is backed by a limited five-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability.

Cool.... Just $1000 for 4TB. 1DWPD for 5 years isn't too bad. What is that 7PB for the 4TB drive? That's kind of a lot, I guess.

I wish my job would upgrade to solid state drives in our server. A "small" database of items.... takes about 5 minutes to process a hundred line order... :( Customers love it....
