Kingston, the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the SSDNow E100 SSD, the company’s new enterprise-class solid state drive (SSD). The new drive enables enterprises to accommodate the performance demands required in support of big data and virtualization initiatives. The new Kingston E100 SSD achieves up to 10X improvements in endurance and reliability over client SSDs on existing hardware, while drastically reducing the physical footprint as significantly fewer SSDs are needed to handle the tasks of many traditional hard-disk drives (HDD).

The performance and processing requirements required in the rapid analysis of massive data sets and large collections of virtual systems have pushed many servers far beyond their breaking point. The next generation E100 SSD provides vastly higher IOPS compared to HDDs, dramatically reducing processing bottlenecks, computer latency and physical system limitations.

 

In a recent virtualized database performance test that compared Kingston’s Enterprise SSD with traditional HDDs, the review “found that replacing a solution consisting of a server with an external chassis containing 24 HDDs with only six internal SSDs increased total database performance by up to 91.8 percent.”  The amount of power consumed “while idle and while running database workloads for both revealed that Kingston’s SSDs used up to 51.0 percent less power than the HDDs, and increased performance per watt by a staggering 184.2 percent.”

 

“Companies worldwide have come to depend on Kingston server memory for reliability and performance,” said Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston. “We are proud to introduce the SSDNow E100 enterprise-class SSD to help organizations handle such initiatives as big data and virtualized environments. The drive’s higher endurance and reliability, along with higher IOPS make it an integral part of a datacenter where uninterrupted 24/7 operation is mission critical.”

 

The new enterprise-class SSDNow E100 SSD is shipping immediately and is available in 100GB, 200GB and 400GB capacities. It is backed by a three-year warranty and free technical support.
