Kingston Technology Company’s flash memory affiliate, Kingston Digital announced the availability of the DC1500M, a U.2 data center NVMe PCIe SSD. The new SSD uses Gen 3.0 x4 PCIe NVMe design that delivers predictable random IO performance and predictable latencies for a wide range of workloads.
High throughput and low latency
DC1500 is designed for long-term performance that offers a high-performance Gen 3.0 x4 NVMe PCIe interface. It delivers read/write latencies of less than 110 microseconds and 206 microseconds. Also, U.2 form factor enables Gen 3.0 and Gen 4.0 servers and storage arrays to immediately utilize existing PCIe slots and U.2 backplanes.
The new DC1500M family joins the DC1000B NVMe boot drive. DC1500M is currently available in 960GB, 1.92TB, 3.84TB and 7.68TB capacities. Keith Schimmenti, Enterprise SSD Business Manager of Kingston said,
“DC1500M adds support for multiple namespaces making it ideal for environments including virtualization and web hosting. From high-performance cloud services, media capture and transport to a range of big-data applications, DC1500M sets the standard for applications where QoS and predictability of performance are paramount. Data centers need drives that are reliable, have serviceable form factors and are equipped with the enterprise-grade features that make it easier to maintain SLAs.”
