News - Kingston - VMworld 2017: Kingston Demos 2.5″ U.2 NVMe PCIe SSD Tuned to Maximize Efficiency in Virtualized Environments

Las Vegas, Nev. & Fountain Valley, Calif. ─ August 28, 2017 ─ Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it will demo the forthcoming DCU1000 2.5″ U.2 NVMe PCIe SSD at VMworld® 2017 (booth #1112). DCU1000 makes Kingston® one of the industry’s most complete providers of end-to-end data performance solutions — from leading server memory products to its highest performance NVMe SSD solutions. At VMworld, Kingston and its partners will provide a variety of demonstrations highlighting the performance capabilities of DCU1000, the industry’s fastest NVMe SSD for the U.2 form factor as well as other DC-series NVMe data performance solutions.

As more mainstream servers launch with U.2 NVMe SSD slots, DCU1000 is the perfect solution to optimize virtual machine performance management throughout the datacenter infrastructure, eliminating many data bottlenecks that are storage-bound. Whether deployed in the Cloud, on-premises or hybrid environments, Kingston’s industry-leading NVMe SSD is perfectly tuned for policy-based, software-defined storage and storage virtualization. DCU1000 maximizes virtual machine (VM) agility while reducing the data center footprint required to support higher performance workloads.

“Kingston’s DCU1000 offers reliable and consistent high data performance in the U.2 form factor, delivering what IT leaders need to optimize virtualized and multi-Cloud environments on the latest generation of servers,” said Ariel Perez, SSD business manager, Kingston. “With our family of Server Premier memory and NVMe PCIe SSD solutions, we meet the data and server storage performance needs of virtualized enterprise environments in which fully optimized mobility is essential, and legacy software business software applications must be scaled in performance to maintain a competitive edge.”

As adoption of the Intel Purley Platform featuring the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor family (formerly known as “Skylake-SP”) takes hold in the marketplace, PCIe NVMe SSD and server DDR4 memory capacities will grow rapidly. Each CPU features 48 PCIe lanes as well as a total of 12 memory slots (6 channels in 2 banks per processor). With a variety of Cloud options including private, public and Cloud service providers, software such as VMware’s Cross-Cloud Architecture allows securing, running and managing Clouds in a common operating environment. DCU1000 SSDs and Kingston’s Server Premier memory provide the end-to-end data solutions that power the hardware needed to accomplish this.
