  • Part of Family Delivering the Industry’s Fastest and Most Advanced NVMe Solutions
  • Powerful Demonstrations Highlight Scaling of U.2 NVMe PCIe SSD Performance, NVMe in the Latest Composable Infrastructure Solutions and a Wall Streaming Hundreds of Videos 

San Jose, Calif. & Fountain Valley, Calif.  August 7, 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 Flash Memory Summit 2017 (FMS Booth #827). 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.

During FMS, 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. Kingston will demonstrate multiple DCU1000 configurations including multi-million IOPS from a single server solution; a composable infrastructure solution leveraging DCU1000; and, a video wall featuring hundreds of videos streaming from a single Kingston NVMe PCIe SSD.     

“With the introduction of DCU1000, we are proud that Kingston has developed the industry’s most complete family of data performance solutions inside the box that address low-latency throughput requirements across the entire data pipeline,” said Ariel Perez, SSD business manager, Kingston. “From server memory modules to the latest SATA and PCIe NVMe SSDs, we can satisfy the data and server storage performance needs from workstations to any size data center, Cloud computing and hyperscale environments.”

DCU1000 is the perfect solution to scale and meet the evolving data automation and performance requirements necessary as Intel recently launched its Purley Platform featuring the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor family (formerly known as “Skylake-SP”). The scalable processor server platform will drive PCIe adoption helping deliver innovation to data center architectures as it features 48 PCIe 3 lanes per processor, each supporting up to 1000MB/s throughput. 

FMS Demos by Kingston: Performance to Exceed Modern Data Demand

Kingston’s family of Server Premier memory and PCIe NVMe SSD data performance solutions are available in the industry’s widest variety of form factors and are designed to meet the requirements of the most taxing use cases where data performance is critical to success. To showcase Kingston products at FMS, the company worked with its industry-leading partners to create demos that speak directly to the requirements of modern data centers which are rapidly evolving to accommodate cutting-edge Internet-of-Things (IoT) environments, artificial intelligence, high performance and enterprise computing, next-generation media & entertainment and much more. Demonstrations include:

  • DCU1000 High Density, Extreme Performance

Kingston integrates the upcoming DCU1000 U.2 NVMe SSD in a 10-Bay 1U server chassis from AIC. This demo populates 10 DCU1000 SSD’s (totaling 40 physical drives) in a compact 1U server form factor illustrating density capability and scaling of the Kingston U.2 design and the extreme performance of NVMe.

  • DCP1000 Wall Of Video

Kingston will show approximately 500 individual videos running from a single DCP1000 NVMe PCIe SSD. The 500 videos will be displayed on a customized 42U rack with LCD screens attached broadcasting the videos. Visitors to the Kingston Booth (#827) can easily walk around the wall of videos and get a closer look.

  • Composable Infrastructure DemoDCU1000 will be part of live CI demo that shows dynamic assignment of DCU1000 storage devices to CPU nodes.
