Kingston Develops Bootable USB 3.0 Drive with Microsoft Windows To Go
Working on-the-go has just gone to a whole new level, thanks to Microsoft’s Windows To Go feature, which is part of the new Windows 8 OS. And Kingston has already announced plans to work with them in order to create Bootable USB 3.0 drives that are equipped with this software.
Windows To Go will allow users to load up a full corporate desktop on an external USB drive, enabling users to boot and operate Windows from multiple PCs. Set to be released this October, Kingston’s new USB Flash Drive will be fully bootable and even incorporates SSD technology in an extremely small device.
“Kingston has been working together with Microsoft for over a year in developing a USB Flash drive capable of meeting the requirements of Windows To Go. We are excited to offer this drive to our enterprise customers later this year,” said Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston. “We appreciate the work from Genesys Logic, Inc., who have helped ensure that the drive is compatible and can boot from the latest systems. Kingston would also like to recognize the work of LSI Corporation in helping to ensure the forthcoming USB Flash drive with their SandForce Flash Storage Processor meets the performance requirements of Windows To Go.”
