Product description
DC500 2.5" Enterprise SSD - 6GBps SATA SSD for Read-Centric and Mixed-Use Drives

Data Centre 500 Series

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 from 480GB, 960GB, 1.92TB, 3.84TB, 7.68TB1

Enterprise Data Centre SSD

Delivering on business demands for 24/7 uptime and reliability, Kingston Enterprise SSDs offer high-performing storage that combines predictable performance with rigorously tested reliability. Kingston’s DC500 Series SSDs offer features that enable data centres to select the most cost-effective SSD for their workload(s). Businesses require results in order to deliver on products, solutions and service level agreements (SLAs). Kingston’s DC500 Series SSDs are designed to deliver on these expectations.

DC500M: Mixed-use SSD

DC500M is a 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 while maintaining the strict performance consistency requirements designed into all of Kingston’s data centre SSDs. Data centres that host databases and various web-based applications can leverage the predictable I/O and latency performance while controlling infrastructure costs.

End-to-end Protection

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.

Quality of Service (QoS)

The DC500 series delivers on QoS2 3 4 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.

Application use cases

Designed for service providers running a wide range of customer applications including:

  • Virtualisation
