Kingston Launches Value-Priced SSDNow E50 Enterprise SSD for Data Centers
The SATA 3.0 solid-state drives come in 100GB, 240GB, and 480GB capacities. In general, the E50 drives are only a little slower than the E100s. For example, the 100GB models have random 4k read/write speeds of 27,000/82,000 IOPS (for the E50) and 55,000/83,000 IOPS (for the E100). The SSDNow E50 drives have DuraWrite write-reduction technology for longevity and RAISE, which reduces uncorrectable errors. If you’re at VMworld, you can check the new SSDs out at Kingston’s booth.
