Kaminario’s K2.N hardware architecture opens a new paradigm for shared storage. Leveraging the scale-out-and-up flexibility of Kaminario VisionOS software, K2.N is based on fully converged NVMe over fabric backend and NVMe drives. Kaminario software on K2.N delivers a disruptively flexible platform for cloud data centers with no compromise on enterprise-class capability.

“Kaminario’s K2 provided the best combination of scalability, performance, and cost efficiency. Their architecture gives them unique capability to deliver consistently high performance in mixed workload”
Moving to the next generation of flash performance for most organizations will be a multi-step process, where they will address various bottlenecks as they occur. Most organizations will be able to create enough IO to make the internal communication advantages of NVMe over SCSI a viable upgrade for storage system vendors to address almost immediately. In the same way, an NVMe connected scale-out architecture should provide a much more efficient communications path between nodes and deliver exciting new features.

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.
The composable storage paradigm promises to deliver a new level of agility to the modern datacenter. It is IDC’s view that the industry is slowly evolving toward composable/disaggregated infrastructures that will eventually encompass all resource types — compute, memory, storage, and networking.
