The Altarum Institute and its subsidiaries provide a broad array of healthcare research, analysis and consulting services to help clients understand and solve underlying issues in health care delivery and financing systems. Their diverse services are delivered by 460 employees who are supported by a unified IT team of eight.


Capacity was crucial and staying on budget was key. They were running out of space. Still, Altarum wanted to keep up with technology advances and took the time to look at several all-flash vendors.


A new Kaminario K2 storage infrastructure provided Altarum with:

  • Non-disruptive scale-up, scale-out enables unconstrained infrastructure growth

  • Performance increased from 5000 IOPS to 250,000 IOPS

  • Maintenance windows cut from 48 to 6 hours

  • Inclusive compression and deduplication

  • Five-year maintenance provides price stability
