The 480GB SSDNow E50 Enterprise Solid State Drive from Kingston features a 480GB storage capacity allowing you to store a variety of files including movies, photos, music, and more. Compatible with notebooks running Windows 8, 7, Vista and Mac OS, this SSD connects to your notebook's 2.5" bay via the SATA 6 Gb/s interface. With solid state drive technology, you benefit from load and access times for your files and programs that are faster than a conventional hard disk drive. Enhanced data read speeds of up to 530 MB/s and data write speeds of up to 500 MB/s allow you to access data stored within the drive quickly and efficiently. Additionally, this drive's high IOPS capability makes it the perfect storage solution for bandwidth-intensive server environments.
Along with enhanced performance, you benefit from advanced data integrity protection. Integrated DuraClass Technology is a set of NAND flash management features that work together to deliver enhanced SSD endurance, reliability, performance and power efficiency.
With DuraClass you benefit from a variety of features including DuraWrite and RAISE, along with advanced wear leveling. Advanced read/program disturb management guards against errant re-programming of cells during read and program cycles, while intelligent garbage collection helps to minimize the impact on the endurance of the flash memory.
Compatible with SATA Rev. 3.0 (6 Gb/s) and SATA Rev. 2.0 (3 Gb/s).
NAND Flash Memory Multi-Level Cell (MLC) Technology uses multiple levels per cell to allow more bits to be stored using the same number of transistors.
Enterprise SMART Tools
For systems supporting SMART monitoring tools, SMART (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) monitors your system for computer hard disk drives and solid-state drives to detect and report on various indicators of reliability, in the hope of anticipating failures. SMART monitors this drive for reliability tracking, usage statistics, life remaining, wear leveling and temperature.
Random I/O and high data access demands can be severely impacted by traditional mechanical hard drive in a virtualized host. The retrieval of data and servicing of enterprise applications and users have become limiting factors in overall system performance. This Kingston solid-state drives (SSDs) is an ideal storage accelerator solution for virtualized workloads and contributes to a fundamental goal of virtualization by doing more with less.
As cloud-based storage becomes increasingly popular, new demands are being placed on the storage infrastructure. A tiered storage model ensures that an organization has the right data on the right tier to maximize not only cost but also performance. The fast-retrieval capabilities of SSDs enable cloud services to operate at peak efficiency for each type of data being processed.
This Kingston SATA 3.0 Enterprise SSD provides users with very fast data access for a wide variety of enterprise applications. They can be used as direct attached storage replacements for hard disk drives in a server or reside in external arrays to speed up storage-bound applications.
This SSD features higher IOPS for multi-user environments
AES 128-bit Encryption and DuraClass Technology
AES 128-bit encryption and Data Integrity Protection featuring DuraClass technology will help safeguard your drive and its data, providing a hardware-based mechanism for encryption and decryption of user data. Utilizing a 128-bit encryption key, AES encryption - when combined with an ATA drive password - helps protect user data.
Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements (RAISE)
RAISE provides advanced error correction and improved SSD reliability. It is constructed from redundant information stored in multiple pages on the SSDs NAND Flash devices to rebuild page or block level data transparently to a known good NAND Flash block
DuraWrite optimizes write operations to extend the drive's life by using a proprietary compression system to minimize the amount of data actually written to non-volatile memory which increases speed and lifetime for most data
Power Failure Protection
Tantalum capacitors are designed to protect data in case of power loss, ensuring the drive has enough power to complete the necessary tasks during an improper shutdown
