Kingstons Data Center DC1000B is a high-performance M.2 (2280) NVMe PCIe SSD using the latest Gen 3.0 x 4 PCIe interface with 96-layer 3D TLC NAND. DC1000B offers data centers a cost-effective boot drive solution with the reassurance they are purchasing an SSD designed for server use. The DC1000B is ideally 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).
M.2 NVMe SSDs are evolving within the data center providing efficiencies in booting servers to preserve valuable front-loading drive bays for data storage. Whitebox and Tier 1 Server OEMs are beginning to equip server motherboards with one or sometimes two M.2 sockets for boot purposes. While the M.2 form-factor was originally designed as a client SSD form-factor, its small physical size and high performance make it attractive for server use. Not all SSD are created equal and using a client SSD in a server application may result in poor inconsistent performance.
- M.2 (2280) NVMe Performance Incredible speeds of up to 2.6GB/s and 200K IOPS.
- Optimized Server Boot Drive Enhanced for boot workloads as well as caching and logging applications.
- On-board (PLP) Power Loss ProtectionReduce the possibility of data loss and/or corruption on ungraceful power-off.
- Maximize Drive Bays Move boot drives internally frees up front loading drive bays for additional data storage.
