Along with processing transactions and analytic queries; databases such as SQL Server need to perform regular maintenance activities such as creating backup copies or switching to alternate databases in the event of a server failure.
This report documents a set of functional tests demonstrating the benefits of Kaminario K2′s All-Flash Array storage for Microsoft SQL Server hosts. These tests cover two key areas of SQL Server operations – database backups and availability during server failures.

“We were looking for an all-flash storage platform that could deliver mixed workload performance for business intelligence, transaction processing, and NoSQL workloads. We chose Kaminario because it supports our data center strategy. We gain tremendous value from Kaminario’s scalability model. Now, we can continue to grow capacity while ensuring consistent sub-1ms latency without ever doing a forklift upgrade. That’s an immense advantage.”
General Manager at Intigua
“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.”
