For an increasing number of real-time big data analytics and extremely high performance database environments, NVMe technology is already needed to meet latency, throughput, and/or bandwidth requirements. But Kaminario’s application of this technology to also offer composability with very high speed data mobility is an NVMe use case that is much more broadly applicable to a larger variety of workloads today.
Principal Analyst, Infrastructure & the Cloud
Kaminario has demonstrated leadership in leveraging NVMe and NVMe over Fabrics. The advancement of the software-defined K2 powered by VisionOS, now with NVMe SSDs, unified NVMe over fabrics, a new orchestration, automation and analytics layer is the Composable Storage of the future. K2.N and Flex will bring the agility of infrastructure-as-a-service environments coupled with extreme performance of shared accelerated storage to private- and hybrid-cloud data centers.”
Kaminario’s K2.N demonstrates how fast the storage industry moves, just a year after the standardization of NVMe over fabrics K2.N leverages NVMEoF’s to create an ultra-low latency scaleable storage fabric. Since K2.N extends Kaminario’s VisionOS to support NVMEoF customers don’t have to choose between networked NVMe’s performance and data services as they would with many of the startup’s more limited or proprietary systems. With the addition of Kaminario Flex, K2.N will become a completely composable system allowing users to orchestrate controllers and NVMe JBOF storage dynamically into virtual arrays for almost unlimited flexibility and efficiency.
The next generation of storage solutions will be based on open hardware solutions. Kaminario is partnering with industry leaders on the development of composable storage solutions to address the needs of the as-a-service world.
