Kingston Helps Drive Big Data and Virtualization Initiatives

Kingston Helps Drive Big Data and Virtualization Initiatives

Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the SSDNow E100 drive, 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. It also aids to drastically reduce the physical footprint of servers or storage arrays, as significantly fewer SSDs are needed to handle the tasks of many traditional hard-disk drives (HDD) arrayed for maximized IOPS performance. 

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

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 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 Krystian Jaroszynski, European Product Manager – Flash & HyperX, Kingston Digital Europe. “Now we are proud to introduce the SSDNow E100 enterprise-class SSD to help organizations handle such initiatives as big data and virtualized environments. This drive’s impressive IOPS performance, combined with high endurance, reliability and power fail support, make it an excellent choice for an integral part of a datacenter where uninterrupted 24/7 operation is mission critical.”

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

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 Memory Guide.
2 Based on “out-of-box performance” with IOMeter08. Speed may vary due to host hardware, software, and usage.
3 Total Bytes Written (TBW) refers to how much total data can be written to an SSD for a given workload before the drive reaches its endurance limits.
