Kingston SSDNow E100 is the latest solid state drive from the house of Kingston. Designed for enterprise users, the SSDNow E100 achieves up to 10X improvements in endurance and reliability over client SSDs on existing hardware, while drastically reducing the physical footprint as significantly fewer SSDs are needed to handle the tasks of many traditional hard-disk drives (HDD).
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 51.0 percent less power than the HDDs, and increased performance per watt by 184.2 percent.
The drive offers sequential read/write speed of up to 535MB/s and 500MB/s respectively. Maximum Random 4k Read/Write are rated at 55,000/83,000 IOPS.
The Kingston SSDNow E100 SSD is shipping immediately and is available in 100GB, 200GB and 400GB capacities.
