Kingston Digital Europe has announced the availability of DC1000M, a new U.2 data centre NVMe PCIe SSD. DC1000M is designed to support a wide range of data-intensive enterprise workloads including Cloud computing, web hosting, high-performance computing, 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 centre storage solutions in the market.
DC1000M is an affordable and powerful NVMe drive for data centres. 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 standardised platforms, delivering up to 540K IOPS of random read performance and over 3GB/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 utilising 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 and telemetry monitoring for increased data centre reliability. DC1000M is available in 960GB, 1.92TB, 3.84TB and 7.68TB capacities; and, is backed by a limited five-year warranty, free technical support and Kingston reliability.
“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 Tony Hollingsbee, SSD Business Manager, Kingston EMEA. “DC1000M provides the stability and low latency for the evolving data centre while powering the workloads that require one drive write per day endurance.”
