DC1000B is designed in a 2280 form factor that includes onboard power-loss protection and is engineered with 0.5DWPD4 endurance for extended service life. Kingston’s DC1000B boasts incredible performance with speeds of up to 3.2GB/s and 205K IOPS2 and is designed for booting, as well as caching and logging applications.


“While the M.2 form factor was originally designed for client machines, it’s small physical size and high performance make it attractive for server use,” said Tony Hollingsbee, SSD business manager, Kingston EMEA. “DC1000B is purpose built for the latest servers from both white box and Tier 1 server OEMs that utilisze M.2 NVMe SSDs for boot purposes, as well as the ability to be configured as a local cache drive.”

DC1000B offers data centers a cost-effective boot drive solution with the reassurance they are purchasing an SSD designed for server use. Ideally suited for use in high-volume rack-mount servers as an internal boot drive(s) as well as purpose-built systems where a high-performance M.2 SSD is needed that includes on-board power-loss protection (PLP). DC1000B is designed to deliver enterprise-level performance consistency and low-latency features typically not found on client SSDs.
