NEEDHAM, Mass., Oct 16, 2017 – Kaminario, a leading all-flash storage company, today announced the results of an ESG Economic Value Validation (EVV) study that examined the return on investment (ROI) realized by deploying Kaminario technology. The report, Quantifying the Value of Kaminario’s Sixth Generation K2 all-flash storage arrays, focused on comparing K2 to traditional all-flash offerings and to other purpose-built all-flash storage solutions on the market. This report and a companion model can be used by IT organizations to understand the economic value of deploying Kaminario technology for their specific use cases.
ESG’s quantitative analysis, based on in-depth interviews with Kaminario customers, illustrated the unique value of Kaminario’s highly agile and composable approach to scaling storage infrastructure. The ability to both scale up and scale out delivers real economic benefits for the performance-sensitive, high capacity growth scenarios common for SaaS providers, consumer internet applications and private cloud use cases. Further, the study examined the economic value of K2 Gen6 capabilities including global selective deduplication, hardware-assisted compression, adaptive block size management and intelligent auto-balancing of workloads.
The report and associated model provide a flexible framework for evaluating the economic value generated by Kaminario relative to traditional all-flash approaches for any use case, including:
- 33 percent faster resolution of application performance issues and 58 percent reduction in time spent monitoring storage and balancing workloads.
- 3x reduction in total cost of ownership relative to other all-flash arrays in mixed workload scenarios.
- 82 percent ROI over five years in performance critical database (OLTP) and analytics (OLAP) consolidations.
Kaminario’s approach to all-flash storage delivers compelling economic benefits relative to other offerings in the market,” said Mark Peters, practice director and senior analyst, ESG. “The combination of intelligent workload management and top-notch data reduction, along with its comprehensive ForeSight Assurance program and its unique approach to composing user’s storage infrastructure to match the specific demands of their environment can deliver real economic advantage to Kaminario’s customers.”
“Capturing the full spectrum of economic considerations is complicated,” said Eyal David, CTO, Kaminario. “ESG’s economic model helps customers better understand the true value drivers when implementing a data center infrastructure strategy – particularly for providers of cloud-scale infrastructure. We see this study and the model as an excellent framework for having a discussion with Kaminario, or any storage technology provider, on the critical role all-flash storage solutions play in delivering business value.”
