The new Kingston Data center SSD PCIe uses the 16-channel Silicon Motion SM2270 controller, which supports the PCIe 3.0 x8 interface. To clarify, the DC1000M uses four PCIe lanes, since this is the slot limitation. However, the DC1000M sequential read and write speeds do not rest on the PCIe 3.0 x4 limit. The source notes low power consumption – from 10 to 18 watts, depending on the volume, which is slightly higher than the U.2 SSD using 8-channel controllers.

The U.2 form factor design (2.5”, 15mm) works seamlessly with the latest generation servers and storage arrays utilizing PCIe and U.2 backplanes. It’s hot-pluggable which makes the challenges of serviceable PCIe storage an issue of the past. It also features enterprise-class features such as end-to-end data path protection, power loss protection (PLP), and telemetry monitoring for increased data center reliability.
