5th Generation Scale-Up/Scale-Out All-Flash Array

True Scale-Out architecture with data and metadata distributed across all the nodes and all the SSDs in the system

The new generation of K2 has a design that is years ahead of other storage vendors. It is the industry's most cost-effective all-flash primary storage array on the market, optimized for the highest cost-effectiveness while also providing consistent performance and scalability across any workload in any environment. With built in self-healing high availability and automated data protection K2 consistently delivers low latency, high throughput, and excellent IOPS performance needed by IT. It is the only flash array to scale-up or scale-out.
