As we found out, Kingston Technology has teamed up with Intel to market flash memory-based drives to top makers of laptops and servers.

Kingston Company, the leading maker of memory modules for computers, does business very carefully. For example, they have waited for a long time before starting flash-drive business, although today these solutions make about 25% of the company’s revenue. The situation with SD has been very similar, too. Kingston claimed that it didn’t make mush sense to join the SSD market. Nevertheless, they promised to prepare a few models of flash-chips based drives.

The time has come for the promises to turn into reality. Kingston is currently very close to shipping their SSD drives. However, they decided not to get involved into production of their own, but to start supplying SSD drives made by Intel at first. Moreover, Kingston will be in charge of marketing, establishing sales channels and providing technical support.

I have to say that it is not the first time Intel partners with Kingston. These companies have already been working on server DRAM modules. However, it not only the prior experience that determined Kingston’s decision to partner with Intel again. Intel’s SSD solutions are currently the fastest and most reliable SSDs out there. Kingston branded SSDs should start shipping this quarter. Large server makers should become Kingston’s first clients in this segment.
