Sunbury-on-Thames, UK - July 25, 2017, – Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced its 32GB, 16GB and 8GB Server Premier DDR4-2666 Registered DIMMs have received validation on the Intel Purley Platform, featuring the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor family (formerly known as “Skylake-SP”). A link to the validation page can be found here. This validation also marks the launch of Kingston's new Server Premier product line, which is focused on the latest server architectures making their debut in 2017. Kingston's new Server Premier builds on a legacy of class-leading server memory quality that target system builders, SMB and data centres with a fully locked build solution for guaranteed consistency.
Kingston’s Purley-validated Server Premier modules are specifically engineered to unleash the power of Intel's new six-channel server microarchitecture, without memory frequency clock down restrictions experienced in previous platforms. At 2666MT/s — the next-generation performance frequency for DDR4 memory — each DIMM provides peak bandwidth of 21.3GB/s. When grouped for multi-channel performance, this provides a significant boost in performance for today’s memory intensive server applications.
Kingston Server Premier is a simplified portfolio of server memory products that target the specific requirements of data centre and Cloud customers as well as business customers, system integrators and SMBs. Server Premier features include:
- Locked Bill of Materials (BOM)
- Part Change Notifications (PCN) of 45-90 days
- Server platform validation
- Intel PCSD server qualification
- Leading server motherboard manufacturer qualification
- Starting speeds at DDR4-2400 and 2666
- Lifetime warranty
- Industry-leading service and support
“We are proud to introduce Server Premier as a simplified set of memory part numbers with broad or multi-platform compatibility,” said Christoph Bader, B2B Strategic Marketing Manager at Kingston. “With Server Premier, customers can expect the same degree of reliability from Kingston’s rigorous testing, performance and support that have made us the memory of choice powering the world's data centres.”
Server Premier is part of the company's complete family of enterprise memory solutions for the data centre. Kingston's server SSD lineup includes:
- DCP1000: a Gen 3.0 x8 PCIe NVMe SSD that delivers up to 1.25M IOPS from a single device with ultra-low transactional latency and high throughput
- DC400: a SATA SSD that offers consistent application performance and low latency over a wide range of read/write workloads for quality of service (QoS) minded customers. Features standard and user-adjustable overprovisioning to improve random IOPS
- DCU1000: Gen 3.0 x4 U.2 NVMe PCIe SSD delivering over 700K IOPS. This U.2 SSD is currently in customer evaluation and proof-of-concept stage
Server Premier memory and Kingston enterprise SSDs give customers complete end-to-end data performance solutions for the data centre. The combination of the two is ideal for HPC (high-performance computing), artificial intelligence, virtualisation, Cloud, big data and database applications; as well as the media and entertainment industry.
