Kingston DataTraveler Workspace USB Flash Drive Will Be Certified For Windows To Go
Kingston today announced it is working with Microsoft to create a Windows To Go compatible USB Flash drive. Windows To Go is a new feature in Windows 8 Enterprise that enables enterprises to provision a full corporate desktop on an external USB drive enabling users to boot and operate from multiple PCs. This new drive is a unique external USB 3.0 device capable of SSD-like performance and achieves all Windows 8 certification requirements. Kingston currently has a beta version of the drive available for enterprises or organizations in need of evaluating the Windows To Go feature of Windows 8 Enterprise. We talked with Kingston and they believe that the fully bootable drive called the DataTraveler Workspace will be released in October of this year. The DataTraveler Workspace will be certified for Windows To Go and will be available in capacities 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB.

“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 Andrew Ewing, Flash memory business manager, 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.”
