Kingston’s enterprise-class 400GB SSDNow E100 SATA 6Gb/s 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive is ideal for mission-critical environments such as data centres, which need to be up and running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The E100 combines impressive endurance and reliability with power-failure support to ensure uninterrupted operation. It also offers 10 times endurance over typical client solid state drives, with 30K program/erase cycles on E100 vs. 3K program/erase cycles on client drives. It features an SF-2500 enterprise-class processor, DuraWrite for maximum read/write performance and endurance and RAISE for advanced error correction.
The E100’s power failure support uses tantalum capacitors so existing writes are committed and/or retired during a power loss to prevent the loss of data. The capacitors can hold a charge at temperatures of up to 85 degrees (other companies use SuperCaps which can hold a charge at temperatures of up to 75 degrees). Additionally, the drive shuts down properly during unexpected power interruptions.
With read/write performance delays often associated with large data sets, E100 helps solve these IO latency bottlenecks in servers. It enables larger enterprise virtualisation projects by increasing the number of virtual systems supported using the existing hardware infrastructure.
