They implement Kingstons strict QoS requirements to ensure predictable random I/O performance as well as predictable low latencies over a wide range of read and write workloads. They can increase productivities within AI, machine learning, big data analytics, cloud computing, software-defined storage, operational databases (ODB), database applications, and data warehousing. Capacities from 480GB, 960GB, 1.92TB, 3.84TB1
Enterprise Data Center SSD
Delivering on business demands for 24/7 uptime and reliability, Kingston Enterprise SSDs offer performance storage that combines performance predictability as well as rigorously tested reliability. Kingstons DC500 Series SSDs offer features that enable data centers to select the most cost effective SSD for their workload(s). Businesses require results as they deliver on products, solutions and service level agreements (SLAs). Kingstons DC500 Series SSDs are designed to deliver on these expectations.
DC500R: Read-centric SSD
DC500R is a highly optimized SSD designed for read-centric workloads enabling data centers to select SSDs tailored for workloads without overspending on more expensive write intensive SSDs. It delivers I/O speeds and response times (latency) that a data center can deploy with confidence to ensure high levels of performance in the working application and downstream at the user interface. These are typically defined by applications requiring real-time results. Serving large amounts of data, delivering responsive results from a variety of databases and web-based applications can leverage the receptive performance of the DC500R.
DC500M: Mixed-use SSD
DC500M is powerful SSD designed for mixed-use workload applications where the demand has a more balanced mix of read and write operations. It delivers greater write endurance over a wide range of workloads all while maintaining the strict performance consistency requirements designed into all of Kingstons Data center SSDs. Data centers hosting databases and various web-based applications can leverage the predictable I/O and latency performance while controlling infrastructure costs.
The DC500 Series SSDs incorporate end-to-end data path protection to help guarantee that all user data transferred into the SSD is protected against transient errors. DC500R / DC500M both include on-board (PLP) power loss protection (via power capacitors and firmware). This ensures data-in-flight is written to the NAND Flash memory in the event of unexpected power loss. Additionally, PLP ensures that the drives mapping table (FTL) is updated prior to power being removed from the drive. These power loss safeguards reduce the chance for data loss and ensure that the drive will successfully re-initialize on the next power-up of the system.
Quality of Service (QoS)
The DC500 Series delivers on QoS2 3 4 with consistency, predictability of latency (response time) and IOPS (IOs Per Second) performance while servicing balanced read and write workloads. Performance predictability is essential for web hosting applications that must deliver on SLAs promised to customers. The DC500 series efficiency produces the reliability for web server applications requiring read centric drives or mixed-use intensive workloads where uptime is mission critical.
