Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today began shipping the 7.68 TB model of the Data Center 500R (DC500R) and 450R (DC450R) SATA SSDs. The DC1000M 7.68 TB U.2 NVMe ships in June. The SSDs provide additional storage and implement strict QoS ensuring predictable IO and low latency for data centers using both NVMe and/or SATA.

The three SSDs join the DC1000B NVMe boot drive, DC500M (for mixed workloads) SATA SSD and Server Premier DRAM to form the most complete range of superior enterprise-class data center storage solutions in the market. "Higher capacity options for data centers enables organizations to increase storage space in their current footprint as Cloud computing continues to grow at unprecedented levels," said Tony Hollingsbee, SSD business manager, Kingston EMEA. "Our evolving line of data center storage solutions serve enterprise customers of all levels from hyperscalers on down and are a key component for organizations to keep the total cost of ownership down."



Kingston's 7.68 TB data center SSDs include:
DC500R:
  • VMware Ready SSD engineered for read-intensive applications such as webservers, virtual desktop infrastructure, operational databases and real-time analytics.
  • I/O speeds and response times (latency) data centers can deploy with confidence, ensuring high levels of performance in the working application and downstream at the user interface.
DC450R:
  • Specific, focused feature set for read-intensive applications and optimized for data centers looking to not overspend on more expensive write-intensive SSDs.
  • Designed for content-delivery networks, edge computing applications and a wide array of software-defined storage architectures.
DC1000M:
  • Hot-pluggable U.2 (2.5") form factor, allowing seamless integration with latest generation servers and storage arrays currently using PCIe and U.2 backplanes.
  • Enterprise-grade features such as end-to-end path protection, power-loss protection (PLP) and telemetry monitoring for increased data reliability.
DC500R, DC450R and DC1000M are backed by a limited five-year warranty with free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability.

Anyone know what that plastic pin for the M.2 drive is? Looks like a push pin for your M.2 drive; might be easier than holding it down with a screw.

That's a pushpin+standoff combo thingie sold in bulk to OEMs.

The most convenient custom standoff I've seen so far is the Fivetech M.2 Board latch:


That's a boon for SSD reviewers.

Looks like SSD capacity is really starting to grow. I'm sure this will be limited to megacorps with insane budgets, but it's only a matter of time before solid state capacity like this comes to a PC near you...

It will be years before the prices come down to normal consumer levels for these 8tb ssd drives.
I'm still waiting for 4tb m.2 to come down lower in prices and more models come out.

It would be great but it seems that it would be a pain for motherboard maker to use this with multiple length support (1 hole for a screw or the plastic holder, whereas 2 or one long for this)

In that sense the plastic holder is a great middle ground between cost and usability (they'd argue that if you need easier accessibility you should use u.2 or upcomming e1.s)
