  • 13 August, 2009 13:00

<p><em>Higher Capacity, IOPS, Faster Read/Write Speeds in SSDNow V+</em><br/>
<br/> <strong>Sydney Australia</strong> –<strong> August 13, 2009 </strong>–
Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products,
today announced a new addition to its SSDNow line of solid-state drives. The SSDNow
V+ features capacities from 64GB to 256GB with higher input and output operations
per second (IOPS) and faster read/write speeds than a standard mechanical hard-disk
drive. It is targeted to prosumers and enterprise companies looking to increase
performance and extend the life of existing systems.<br/>
“The SSDNow V+ is the ideal solid-state drive for power users, system builders,
system integrators, and in demanding corporate environments where efficiency and
performance are important as more system resources are in use,” said Vaughan
Nankivell, Regional Manager, Australia and New Zealand for Kingston Technology.
“Users will be more productive as the drive’s higher capacities and
IOPS allow for more data storage and faster boot and application load times.”<br/>
A computer’s operating system will benefit from the drive’s impressive
random 4K read speeds of up to 6,300 IOPS, and random 4K writes of up to 291 IOPS.
The Kingston SSDNow V+ has a blazing sequential read speed of up to 220MB/sec.
and write speeds of up to 180MB/sec.<br/>
The V+ is the latest addition to the SSDNow family of solid-state drives. The
V+ is currently available in the United States in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities;
the 64GB drive is available worldwide with increased capacities to come. It uses
a standard SATA interface and is extremely durable with no moving parts and less
heat generation than a typical hard-disk drive.<br/>
The SSD is backed by a three-year warranty, free tech support and legendary Kingston
reliability. For more information, visit <a href="#"></a>.<br/>
