KAMINARIO K2 REFERENCE ARCHITECTURE

An ideal compute, network, and storage infrastructure for today’s enterprise would have great agility and more than meet all of the technical requirements. It would have a variety of easy to change compute and network personalities, and a storage layer that would support multiple storage protocols, contain multiple inline space saving technologies, and optimize the use of Flash technology from a performance, capacity, and cost perspective. Get all of the details on how the combination of Kaminario K2 storage and the Cisco UCS compute platform is an ideal collective infrastructure to meet these ever-changing requirements.

“Kaminario excelled in every category: performance, ease of installation, ease of operating interface, encryption, snaps, deduplication and more. There was no learning curve. Along with some determined sales creativity, Kaminario made it an easy choice.”

“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.”

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.”
