    Focused features set enables data centers to select the most cost effective SSD for their workload(s).


Kingston’s Data Centre 500 (DC500R / DC500M) series of solid-state drives are high-performance 6Gbps SATA SSDs that use the latest 3D TLC NAND, designed for read-centric and mixed-use server workloads. They implement Kingston’s strict QoS requirements to ensure predictable random I/O performance as well as predictable low latencies over a wide range of read and write workloads. They can increase productivity for AI, machine learning, big data analytics, cloud computing, software-defined storage, operational databases (ODB), database applications and data warehousing.

Capacities of the DC500

Delivering on business demands for 24/7 uptime and reliability, Kingston Enterprise SSDs offer performance storage that combines performance predictability as well as rigorously tested reliability. Kingston’s DC500 Series SSDs offer features that enable data centers to select the most cost-effective SSD for their workload(s). Businesses require results as they deliver on products, solutions and service level agreements (SLA’s). Kingston’s DC500 Series SSDs are designed to deliver on these expectations.

DC500R is a highly optimized SSD designed for read-centric workloads enabling data centers to select SSDs tailored for workloads without overspending on more expensive write-intensive SSDs. It delivers I/O speeds and response times (latency) that a data center can deploy with confidence to ensure high levels of performance in the working application and downstream at the user interface. These are typically defined by applications requiring real-time results. Serving large amounts of data, delivering responsive results from a variety of databases and web-based applications can leverage the receptive performance of the DC500R.

DC500M is powerful SSD designed for mixed-use workload applications where the demand has a more balanced mix of read and write operations. It delivers greater write endurance over a wide range of workloads all while maintaining the strict performance consistency requirements designed into all of Kingston’s Data center SSDs. Data centers hosting databases and various web-based applications can leverage the predictable I/O and latency performance while controlling infrastructure costs.

Read all about it

The DC500 series SSDs incorporate end-to-end data path protection to help guarantee that all user data transferred into the SSD is protected against transient errors. The DC500R and DC500M both include on-board power-loss protection (PLP) via power capacitors and firmware. This ensures data-in-flight is written to the NAND Flash memory in the event of unexpected power loss. Additionally, PLP ensures that the drives’ mapping table (FTL) is updated prior to power being removed from the drive. These power loss safeguards reduce the chance of data loss and ensure that the drive will successfully re-initialise on the next power-up of the system.

The DC500 series delivers on QoS with consistency, predictability of latency (response time) and IOPS (IOs per Second) performance while servicing balanced read and write workloads. Performance predictability is essential for web hosting applications that must deliver on SLAs promised to customers. The DC500 series efficiency produces the reliability needed for web server applications that require read-centric drives or mixed-use intensive workloads where uptime is mission critical.

Remote access is critical

More and more employees are now working remotely, as new technologies allow them to connect with colleagues and clients from all over the world.
70% of professionals work remotely at least once per week. However, one person can compromise the security integrity of your entire organisation if they don’t follow the necessary security protocols.


Encrypted USB: Data protection for your business

Using an encrypted USB Flash Drive is an important practice for the following reasons:

  • To keep sensitive company data secure
  • To protect customer information & to comply with GDPR
  • To ensure companies do not suffer loss of earnings, time or reputation
Why use Kingston’s encrypted USBs?

Affordable, business-grade security

Available in Standard, Managed, Serialised, Anti-Virus & customised models

5-year warranty, free technical support

The challenges of mobile workforce security

How to solve the above issues?

Unless your security protocols are designed around enabling efficiency for your staff, they will find workarounds – storing sensitive information in places like Slack, Dropbox, personal email or private USBs. Even worse you will instil a Them Vs. Us culture between your IT security team and the rest of your workforce. Your business is at risk.
