Data Center 500 Series
Kingston's Data Center 500 (DC500R / DC500M) Series of solid-state drives are high performance 6Gbps SATA SSDs using the latest 3D TLC NAND, designed for Read Centric and Mixed-Use server workloads. They implement Kingston's 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
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. Kingston's 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 (SLA's). Kingston's DC500 Series SSDs are designed to deliver on these expectations.
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 Kingston's 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.
