Consolidation of virtualized servers delivers both substantial cost savings and increased operational flexibility. However, consolidated servers can produce a widely varying and random blend of I/O demands that can seriously degrade the performance of most legacy and hybrid storage arrays.
Kaminario K2’s ability to efficiently scale-up and out to handle demanding mixed workloads and blended I/O make it an ideal primary storage tier for consolidating virtual servers.

“We selected Kaminario K2 v5 for our enterprise storage needs because it has one of the most efficient architectures we’ve seen on the market, allowing us to maximize our storage capacity of 300TB at a footprint of just 4U, keep pace with the demands of our customers, and simplify the management stack operations in different workload environments. In addition, K2 v5 enables us to reduce costs since we’re able to minimize the average amount of storage that is required for each VM. These cost savings are significant for our environment, where we test environments of thousands of virtual servers. We were able to deploy over 7,000 virtual servers on a single K-Block configuration of K2 v5, with a data reduction rate of 20:1.”
