As more mainstream servers launch with U.2 NVMe SSD slots, DCU1000 is the perfect solution to optimize virtual machine performance management throughout the datacenter infrastructure, eliminating many data bottlenecks that are storage-bound. Whether deployed in the Cloud, on-premises or hybrid environments, Kingston’s industry-leading NVMe SSD is perfectly tuned for policy-based, software-defined storage and storage virtualization. DCU1000 maximizes VM agility while reducing the data center footprint required to support higher performance workloads.

“Kingston’s DCU1000 offers reliable and consistent high data performance in the U.2 form factor, delivering what IT leaders need to optimize virtualized and multi-Cloud environments on the latest generation of servers,” said Ariel Perez, SSD business manager, Kingston. “With our family of Server Premier memory and NVMe PCIe SSD solutions, we meet the data and server storage performance needs of virtualized enterprise environments in which storage optimization is essential, and legacy software business applications must be scaled in performance to maintain a competitive edge.”

As adoption of the Intel Purley Platform featuring the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor family (formerly known as “Skylake-SP”) takes hold in the marketplace, PCIe NVMe SSD and server DDR4 memory capacities will grow rapidly. Each CPU features 48 PCIe lanes as well as a total of 12 memory slots (6 channels in 2 banks per processor). With a variety of Cloud options including private, public and Cloud service providers, software such as VMware’s Cross-Cloud Architecture allows securing, running and managing Clouds in a common operating environment. DCU1000 SSDs and Kingston’s Server Premier memory provide the end-to-end data solutions that power the hardware needed to accomplish this.

VMWorld Demos by Kingston: Data Agility for a Virtualized World

Kingston’s family of Server Premier memory and PCIe NVMe SSD data performance solutions are available in the industry’s widest variety of form factors and are designed to meet the requirements of the most taxing use cases where data performance is critical to success. To showcase its products at VMWorld, the company worked with its industry-leading partners to create demos that speak directly to the requirements of modern data centers in which virtualization is the rule, not the exception. With superior data performance, Kingston solutions facilitate more efficient container orchestration, virtual machine (VM) cloning and VMotion at near-memory speeds, and deliver the real-time data support necessary to achieve significant improvements in parallel processing for VMs, maximize existing datacenter assets, increase business mobility, and better facilitate the ongoing digitization of business operations. Demonstrations include:

  • NVIDIA Quadro vDWS Raw 8K Graphics Rendering Demo

The next evolution in faster high-definition video capture for broadcast is here. See the DCP1000 paired with the powerful NVIDIA Quadro Virtual Desktop Workstation running on a Tesla P40 GPU to render raw 8K Red video footage in real time at 25 frames per second in Premier Pro using the Mercury Playback Engine.

  • DCU1000 High Density, Extreme Performance

Kingston demonstrates the upcoming DCU1000 U.2 NVMe SSD in a 10-Bay 1U server chassis from AIC.  Populating 10 DCU1000 SSDs (totaling 40 physical drives) in a compact 1U server form factor illustrates density and scaling of the Kingston U.2 design and the extreme performance of NVMe.

  • DCP1000 Wall Of Video

Kingston will demonstrate the capabilities of a single DCP1000 NVMe PCIe SSD streaming 500 individual videos. The 500 videos will be streamed on a customized 42U rack with LCD screens attached. Visitors to the Kingston Booth (#1112) can easily walk around the wall of videos and get a closer look.

  • Composable Infrastructure Demo

DCU1000 will be part of live CI demo that shows dynamic assignment of DCU1000 storage devices to CPU nodes.
