DC600M is 6Gbps SATA 3.0 storage with 3D TLC NAND, suited for use in high-volume rack-mount servers. The drive includes hardware based on-board power loss protection via power loss capacitors to protect data against unexpected power failure reducing the risk of data loss, and ensures the drive successfully re-initializes on the next system power-up. With predictable low latencies over a wide range of read and write workloads DC600M is designed for system integrators, hyperscale data centers, and cloud service providers.

“Quality of Service in an enterprise SSD is critical as data centers and workloads demand stability and low latency for predictable storage performance levels to meet strict customer SLAs,” said Keith Schimmenti, enterprise SSD business manager, Kingston. “In addition, DC600M is AES 256-bit encrypted making it the optimal data center storage solution when you combine its enterprise-class reliability and strict QoS requirements along with Kingston’s legendary sales support.”

The DC600M data center SSD is available in 480GB, 960GB, 1920GB, 3840GB, and 7680GB capacities. For more information visit
