Kingston Releases SSDNow V+ Solid-State Drive

Kingston-SSDV+Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, announced a new addition to its SSDNow line of solid-state drives. Shipping immediately, the SSDNow V+ features capacities up to 256GB, 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.

“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 Ariel Perez, SSD business manager, Kingston(R). “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.”

The V+ is the latest addition to the SSDNow family of solid-state drives.
