If data center products make their way into the consumer market, the future looks bright storage volume wise. The Kingston DC1000M is an enterprise-class U.2 NVMe Gen3 x4 SSD available in capacities ranging from 960GB to a whopping 7.6TB.
It’s designed to deliver up to 540K IOPS of random read performance and 3GB/s of throughput. The DC1000M is backed by strict QoS requirements to ensure predictable random IO performance as well as predictable latencies over a wide range of workloads. The U.2 form-factor design (2.5”, 15mm) works seamlessly with the latest generation servers and storage arrays utilising PCIe and U.2 backplanes. It’s hot pluggable, which makes the challenge of serviceable PCIe storage an issue of the past.
It also features enterprise-class features such as end-to-end data path protection, power loss protection (PLP) and telemetry monitoring for increased data centre reliability. Backed by Kingston’s legendary pre- and post-sales support and a five-year limited warranty. Capacities* range from 960GB to 7.6TB.
The "mixed-use" workload drive makes it ideal for running a wide range of customer applications including:
- High-performance cloud service
- Web hosting caching
- High-resolution media capture and transport
- ERP, CRM, GL, OLAP, OLTP, ERM, BI and EDW workload
- Enterprise-class U.2 NVMe PCIe SSD Gen 3.0 x4 SSD
