IDF 2012: Kingston Shows Off Windows To Go w/ Datatraveler Workspace

Microsoft has designed Windows 8 for the diskless world, so it should not be much of a surprise that consumers will be able to install and operate in such environments. This could also help low cost systems as you could essentially boot and run Windows from external Flash drives. With Microsoft Windows 8 comes a new feature called Windows to Go and we get a chance to check it out with Kingston!

The Kingston DataTraveler Workspace measures 75.29 x 22.98 x 16.44mm and as we mentioned earlier is a USB 3.0 drive. Kingston hasn't set final specifications for speed, but right now they are seeing sequential Read/Write speeds while running Windows 8 of 250/150MB/s and sustained random 4K Read/Write while running Windows 8 of 3,750/6,000 IOPS. These are pretty impressive drive speeds and we were told this drive can score 22,000 points on the PCMark Vantage HDD test suite!

I doubt our company would every downgrade to Win8 from Win7 but if we did I could definitely get behind this if we were looking at cutting our overhead and letting user's bring their own equipment in to work with.
