Automate. Integrate. Orchestrate.

 

Orchestrated Composability

Kaminario Flex is a storage orchestration platform for managing storage resources in your Kaminario environment. Dynamically compose, optimize, manage, and release storage resources with no physical reconfiguration.  Orchestrate storage resources as new workloads emerge, move, and evolve over time.  Scale-up. Scale-out. Scale-in. Scale-off. Welcome to the era of composable storage.

Orchestrating the Cloud Storage Infrastructure

Flex leverages Kaminario’s unique software-defined architecture to dynamically associate controller resources (called c.nodes) and solid state media resources (called m.nodes) to build shared storage assets that deliver industry-leading all-flash capability.  Virtual arrays deliver enterprise class storage capabilities but with a game-changing level of flexibility.  Build and manage storage resources with a swipe of your finger or a line of code. Composable storage is the next-generation paradigm for cloud-scale, business-critical applications.

 

Orchestrated Composability

Dynamically compose and orchestrate storage resources from a shared pool of controllers (c.nodes) and media (m.nodes) on a common NVMeOF network.

Orchestrated Containers

Create, assign, and manage storage resources for containerized applications on the fly.  Leverage the Kaminario RESTful API to dynamically request storage resources.

Orchestrated Automation

Incorporate analytics and optimization from Clarity to automate storage management tasks based on a rules engine maintained in Flex.  Realize the potential of an autonomous storage infrastructure.

IDC Analysis: NVMe/NVMeOF and Composable Storage Infrastructure

NVMe over Fabrics (NVMeOF) is changing the way datacenters are architected.  With networking latency between resources within the datacenter reduced to that of DAS-connected storage, shared storage can evolve beyond the notion of an array or a fixed cluster.  Kaminario Flex orchestrates resources connected on a common NVMeOF datacenter fabric to dynamically create and manage resources that come together to form a virtual storage array.
