Whilst the world seems to be on a quest to push all data access, application access and interconnectivity out to edge networking concepts, what will happen when the eventual explosion of the ultra-fast 5G connectivity comes around – let alone adoption of the Industrial IoT path for smart factories of tomorrow? If you see these trends coming, it is logical to assume that the time of the micro datacentre will be upon us. With home working now being accepted as a normal business function it also seems essential to create micro datacentres to cater for the localised growth.
Global technology vendors know their systems, but you cannot beat over 30 years of experience in memory and storage. Therefore, when it comes to finding the optimum networked storage and storage management solution it is helpful to work with a storage provider that offers both strong technology expertise and robust deployment and professional services capabilities.
At Kingston Technology presale consulting, design, and assessment services are offered to help the customers with these complex scenarios. Due to those solutions, customers are more likely to build a storage solution that will meet both their present and future needs while increasing their ROI and lowering the overall TCO of their storage solution.

With more than 100,000 customers, Hosteur has seen the demand for hosting services has grown significantly in recent years. This increase in demand translates into a large requirement for RAM and storage to ensure that they can meet our customer’s needs. Hosteur were facing the challenge of having to implement new servers quickly in response to demand, supply large capacities of DRAM and ensure good MTBF to all their customers.
To support the growth and demand from their ever-growing customer base, Hosteur looked to Kingston as a trusted partner, a reliable brand with great support through our Ask an Expert service and dedicated account manager. Hosteur decided to trial and test Kingston Enterprise SSDs in their servers which were supplied as evaluation units, free of charge. Hosteur wanted to see how our DC Enterprise SSDs could increase storage, performance and minimise downtime to provide their customers with best-in-class service.

Hostmein needed a reliable performance solution for its servers to uphold its best-in-class service offering while remaining competitive. It was looking to upgrade its server’s storage from HDD to full SSD for direct attached storage and for its software-defined storage applications. Another critical aspect was data security as HDD SSD storage cannot leave the facilities without being physically destroyed, which most of the hardware vendors would not offer as a service if a replacement were required.
Kingston offered a full technical review process and provided a solution based on its hardware with our Ask an Expert service. Kingston sent proof-of-concept DC500 SSDs to allow Hostmein to test in its own infrastructure. Kingston’s DC500 SSDs were compatible with the Dell and HP Servers that the company is currently operating and are performing well.

By partnering with Kingston, Hostmein was able to provide a cutting-edge and reliable solution to its customers and improve hardware performance. Hostmein reduced its overall server TCO and lowered its data center power cost by 60% by replacing its high-RPM mechanical HDD with Kingston’s DC500 SSD, which helped towards its environmental initiatives.
Kingston Technology has announced availability of its new DC1500M, a U.2 datacentre NVMe PCIe SSD for mixed-use workloads. Leveraging a high-performance Gen 3.0 x4 PCIe NVMe design, the DC1500M delivers predictable random IO performance as well as predictable latencies over a wide range of workloads.
