DC1500M U.2 NVMe SSD Adds Support for Multiple Namespaces

Delivers Enhanced Enterprise-Grade Endurance with ConsistentLatency and IOPS Performance

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], July 2: Kingston Technology, a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today announced the availability of the DC1500M, a U.2 data center NVMe™ PCIe SSD for mixed-use workloads. Leveraging a high-performance Gen 3.0 x4 PCIe NVMe design, the DC1500M delivers predictable random IO performance as well as predictable latencies over a wide range of workloads.

“DC1500M adds support for multiple namespaces making it ideal for environments including virtualization and web hosting,” said Kingston. “From high-performance cloud services, media capture, and transport to a range of big-data applications, DC1500M sets the standard for applications where QoS and predictability of performance are paramount. Data centers need reliable drives, have serviceable form factors, and are equipped with the enterprise-grade features that make it easier to maintain SLAs.”

DC1500M is built with long-term performance in mind offering a high-performance Gen 3.0 x4NVMe PCIe interface to ensure high throughput and low latency in new and existing data center platforms. The drive delivers consistent read/write latencies of<110 µs / <206 µs, respectively. Additionally, adopting the U.2 form factor allows current Gen 3.0 and Gen 4.0 servers and storage arrays to immediately utilize existing PCIe slots and U.2 backplanes while maintaining serviceability with hot-pluggable drives.

Building on the success of previous Kingston U.2 NVMe SSDs, the new DC1500M drive boasts advanced enterprise-class features to enhance long-term performance in high-availability environments. These include end-to-end data path protection, multiple namespace management, power loss protection (PLP), and telemetry monitoring for increased data center reliability.

DC1500M joins the DC1000B NVMe boot drive, the VMware Ready™DC500 series SATA SSDs and DC450R to form the most complete range of superior enterprise-class data center storage solutions on the market. The drives are backed by Kingston’s legendary pre-and post-sales support and a five-year limited warranty1. DC1500M is available in 960GB, 1.92TB, 3.84TB and 7.68TB capacities2.

1Some 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.com/flashguide.

2Workload based on FIO, Random 4KB QD=1 workload, measured as the time taken for 99.9 percentile of commands to finish the round-trip from host to drive and to host.

3Measurement taken once the workload has reached a steady-state but including all background activities required for normal operation and data reliability.

4Based on 1920GB capacity.

5Drives Writes Per Day (DWPD) derived from the JEDEC Enterprise Workload (JESD219A).

6Limited warranty based on 5 years or when the usage of an NVMe SSD as indicated by Kingston’s implementation of the health attribute “Percentage Used” reaches or exceeds a normalized value of one hundred (100) as indicated by the Kingston SSD Manager (kingston.com/SSDManager). For NVMe SSDs, a new unused product will show a Percentage Used value of 0, whereas a product that reaches its warranty limit will show a Percentage Used value greater than or equal to one hundred (100).
