LSI AIS 2012 - Most of us haven't spent a lot of time with Windows To Go yet but those articles are in the pipeline. W2G is a feature in Windows 8 Enterprise that allows Win 8 Enterprise to boot and run from mass storage devices, like flash drives. The general concept has been around for years with other devices and software tools but Windows To Go puts a big name, Microsoft, at the head of the table.

At AIS 2012 LSI displayed three Windows To Go solutions. Kingston had their solution running on an off-the-shelf notebook. The DataTraveler Workspace is currently shipping in 32GB and 64GB capacity sizes. A 128GB model is available by special order according to Kinston's website. You know what model I want.

Windows 8 Enterprise on the SSD, err I mean thumb drive takes a little less than 14GB. That means you have plenty of free capacity for work documents on a 32GB Windows To Go SandForce based solution.

Just like with your notebook or desktop, you want a fast solution with low latency for your boot drive. LSI SandForce offers excellent performance in both of these categories and when paired with USB 3.0 delivers excellent throughput.
