Introduction

Fast and small is good, right? At least that’s how it works in the computer world. And USB flash drives are no different; we like them fast for data transfer, but also come in a small package. Thankfully we’ve seen USB 3.0 make major inroads into accomplishing just that, with speeds that are significantly faster than the previous USB 2.0 standard. With most of us having less time on our hands, these speeds allow us faster file transfers, while still maintaining the large capacity and highly portable nature of these ubiquitous flash drives. But what about those people that don’t want just storage space? Perhaps something more…..say, how about running Windows 8 Enterprise off a flash drive?

And this brings us to today’s topic of discussion: the Kingston DataTraveler Workspace 32GB USB 3.0 flash drive. It’s definitely not your average flash drive, as this one lets you run Windows 8 on the go. Didn’t think you could run a portable version of Window 8, nevermind from a flash drive? Welcome to the future now.

The DataTraveler Workspace not only allows Windows To Go, but the tech behind this little flash drive is very interesting; its USB 3.0 interface supports some blistering speeds because of the SSD SandForce controller onboard. Yes, the same controller found on desktop SSDs, except it’s packed into a tiny form factor to put on your keyring here.

Sounds fascinating. Let’s take a closer look at the Kingston DataTraveler Workspace for those who want to plug and play with Windows 8.
