Kingston and Marvell celebrate 6 million milestone

Kingston has announced that more than 6 million SSD units have shipped worldwide featuring Marvell controllers. The 6 million units includes both Kingston and HyperX product lines. The feat was accomplished in just over two years, as the HyperX Predator PCIe SSD in February 2015 was the company’s first SSD to ship utilising a Marvell controller. Marvell’s 88SS9293 controller provides fast, next generation SSD performance, making HyperX’s Predator PCIe SSD appealing to system builders and enthusiasts.

Wanting to offer users of all levels the benefits of high performance from an SSD, Kingston released UV400, powered by Marvell’s 88SS1074 four-channel controller in May 2016. As the product range evolves later this year, Kingston will launch the UV500 series, its first 3D NAND-enabled SSD utilising Marvell’s newest 88SS1074 full turnkey (FTK) solution. UV500 will be available in 2.5″, M.2 and mSATA form factors providing solutions for any consumer and system builder SSD needs. It is designed for mainstream client use but also has 256-bit AES encryption and TCG Opal 2.0 enabled for enterprise users as well.

“Marvell is proud of the success in our collaboration with Kingston, and is excited to be extending it with our first in-house developed FTK solution on our 88SS1074 controller,” said Nigel Alvares, VP of SSD and enterprise storage marketing, storage group, Marvell. “Kingston’s UV500 will be able to offer industry-leading 3D NAND performance, endurance, data integrity and reliability using our third generation of NANDEdge technology, the industry’s most advanced low-density parity check (LDPC) error correction platform available, and integrated in all of our latest SATA, SAS and PCIe controllers.”

Tony Hollingsbee, SSD business manager at Kingston, added: “We are happy with the work we’ve achieved with the Marvell team to deliver higher performance and quality products to our customers; and, to have reached such a mark like 6 million SSDs shipped in such a short time. We’re looking to sustain our unit growth with this next generation drive series utilising 3D NAND and Marvell’s full turnkey solution. UV500 will deliver excellent performance and reliability for both consumer and system builder users.”
