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. We also reduced costs by minimizing the average amount of storage required for each VM. 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.”
