Fountain Valley, CA – March 7, 2017 – Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today  announced it is shipping Data Center PCIe 1000 SSD (DCP1000). DCP1000 SSD is a Flash-based data center technology solution that aggregates four 8-channel controllers together to deliver up to 1.25 million IOPS from a single SSD. It can help IT professionals easily and economically scale performance and increase storage capacity in data centers without replacing an entire server infrastructure. DCP1000 SSD is currently shipping in the U.S. only.

The PCIe-based NVMe Gen. 3.0 x8 SSD is targeted toward high-performance data center applications such as database optimization, online transaction processing (OLTP), software defined storage, virtual desktop infrastructure and virtualization. Organizations that engage in high-performance computing (HPC) where workloads are compute and data intensive will benefit from the 7GB/s throughput and high IOPS that the solution delivers. Additionally, DCP1000 SSD delivers high sequential performance so it’s the perfect drive for industries that push out large amounts of streaming data.

DCP1000 SSD is a result of a close engineering partnership with Liqid Inc., a provider of on-demand composable infrastructure (CI) platforms, enabling hyperscale agility at any scale. It will be demonstrated in Liqid’s booth (booth #A13) during this year’s Open Compute Project U.S. Summit 2017 (OCP) March 8-9 in Santa Clara, Calif.

“We are proud to introduce the next generation of PCIe storage and performance for data centers with our new DCP1000 PCIe NVMe SSD,” said Ariel Perez, SSD business manager, Kingston. “This drive is a game changer among data center technology solutions. DCP1000 SSD enables IT professionals to quickly and economically scale and improve performance without replacing an entire storage system or server infrastructure.”    

“Working with the world-class engineering team at Kingston has been an honor, and we are very pleased to be able to introduce the lightning fast, Liqid-powered DCP1000 SSD to the market,” said Sumit Puri, VP, Marketing, Liqid. “As data demand continues to increase year over year, DCP1000 SSD gives enterprise organizations the ability to better manage resources and scale quickly at the speed of business.”

DCP1000 SSD features hardware-based pFail, next-gen. ECC data protection, advanced error correction and advanced device monitoring. It is backed by a limited 5-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability. For more information visit
