PRESS RELEASE

• DC1000B Marks Kingston’s Entrance into NVMe Data Center Drives

• High-Performance M.2 NVMe PCIe; Gen 3.0 x 4 Interface

• 2280 Form Factor NVMe Server Boot Drive with Power-Loss Protection

Sunbury-on-Thames, UK – January 13, 2020 – Kingston Digital Europe Co LLP, the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today announced the availability of a new data center SSD, the DC1000B M.2 NVMe boot drive. The new drive is ideal for servers shipping with one or two M.2 NVMe slots dedicated for boot purposes and thus preserving valuable front-loading 2.5″ drive bays for additional data storage. DC1000B is designed in a 2280 form factor that includes onboard power-loss protection and is engineered with 0.5DWPD4 endurance for extended service life. Kingston’s DC1000B boasts incredible performance with speeds of up to 3.2GB/s and 205K IOPS2 and is designed for booting, as well as caching and logging applications.

“While the M.2 form factor was originally designed for client machines, it’s small physical size and high performance make it attractive for server use,” said Tony Hollingsbee, SSD business manager, Kingston EMEA. “DC1000B is purpose built for the latest servers from both white box and Tier 1 server OEMs that utilisze M.2 NVMe SSDs for boot purposes, as well as the ability to be configured as a local cache drive.”

DC1000B is a high-performance M.2 (2280) NVMe SSD using the latest Gen 3.0 x 4 PCIe interface with 3D TLC NAND. DC1000B offers data centers a cost-effective boot drive solution with the reassurance they are purchasing an SSD designed for server use. Ideally suited for use in high-volume rack-mount servers as an internal boot drive(s) as well as purpose-built systems where a high-performance M.2 SSD is needed that includes on-board power-loss protection (PLP). DC1000B is designed to deliver enterprise-level performance consistency and low-latency features typically not found on client SSDs.

DC1000B is available in 240GB and 480GB capacities1 and is backed by a limited five-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability. For more information visit kingston.com.

1 Some of the listed capacity on a Flash storage device is used for formatting and other functions and thus is not available for data storage. As such, the actual available capacity for data storage is less than what is listed on the products. For more information, go to Kingston’s Flash Guide at kingston.com/flashguide.

2 Measurement taken once the workload has reached steady state but including all background activities required for normal operation and data reliability.

3 Total Bytes Written (TBW) is derived from the JEDEC Client Workload (JESD219A).

4 Drive Writes Per Day (DWPD) derived from the JEDEC Enterprise Workload (JESD219A).

5 Limited warranty based on 5 years or SSD “Life Remaining” which can be found using the Kingston SSD Manager (kingston.com/SSDManager). A new, unused product will show a wear indicator value of one hundred (100), whereas a product that has reached its endurance limit of program erase cycles will show a wear indicator value of one (1).
