Kingston Technology announced the Data Center DC1000B M.2 NVMe SSD, optimized for server boot drive applications, featuring power-loss protection (PLP).
The M.2 (2280) NVMe PCIe SSD is using the latest Gen 3.0 x 4 PCIe interface with 64-layer 3D TLC NAND. It is suited for use in high-volume rack-mount servers as an internal boot drive(s) as well as for use in purpose-built systems where a high-performance M.2 SSD is needed that includes on-board power loss protection (PLP).
The DC1000B was designed with added endurance (0.5 DWPD for 5yrs) to handle the OS workload as well as the extra write workload of caching and data logging. In addition, the DC1000B is designed to deliver enterprise level performance consistency and low latency features typically not found on client SSDs.
The new drive is available in 240GB and 480GB capacities.
