Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the Kingston KC310 960GB solid-state drive, its largest business-class SSD. KC310 is a true HDD replacement as its large capacity allows users to store more data and applications. Powered by a Phison S10 quad-core, eight-channel controller, KC310 provides unsurpassed SATA Rev. 3.0 (6Gb/s) performance delivering high read/write speeds and IOPS.

The Kingston KC310 is an ideal SSD for entry-level servers and datacenter hosting companies looking for more storage. The drive provides end-to-end data protection throughAdvanced SmartECC™ and Flash error code correction. Data can be rebuilt in the event of an error allowing for extended NAND durability and reliability. The addition of firmware-based power loss protection helps maintain data integrity as data is constantly moved to NAND to minimize the amount of time it stays in the cache.

According to Ariel Perez, SSD business manager, Kingston: “Kingston is proud to add this drive to our line of business SSDs for users who want or need nearly 1TB in storage,” “Corporate customers looking to upgrade client systems will also find KC310 ideal for entry-level servers with its combination of read/write speeds, IOPS, high capacity and advanced data protection.”

In addition to the Kingston KC310, the company also offers the KC300 series for corporate customers who require client management software to centrally manage and set security policies for its SSDs. KC300 SSDs support TCG Opal 2.0, IEEE 1667 and Microsoft eDrive, as well as feature advanced power management and enterprise-grade S.M.A.R.T. attributes. KC300 SSDs utilize the award-winning SandForce SF2281 Flash controller and range in capacity from 60GB to 480GB.

The Kingston KC310 and KC300 SSDs are backed by a three-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability. For more information visitwww.kingston.com.
