Kaminario K2: The Truly Enterprise-Ready SSD Storage Array (TVS)

Just a couple of years ago, as solid-state storage technologies began finding significant mainstream adoption, Taneja Group began closely following a vendor whose architectural roadmap seemed to destine them to be the pre-eminent architectural leader for scale-out, high performance, enterprise-ready, cost-effective solid-state arrays.

That vendor was Kaminario, who first entered the market with a highly resilient, scale-out architecture that promised extreme performance with more linear scalability as well as superior availability / serviceability versus other offerings we then saw on the market.

In the past couple of years, Kaminario has continued advancing their technology in both performance and features, systematically adding the mainstream features that the enterprise demands – and are that are too often missing on high performance storage systems: features like snapshots, utilization reporting, resiliency that tolerates full node failures, and more.

In turn, Kaminario recently drew the attention of Taneja Group Labs. Scale-out and enterprise-class storage management features are not easy to architect (especially not together), and we wanted to know whether Kaminario could deliver enterprise-class wrappings with all of their historic scale-out capabilities.

Kaminario pulls ahead in the race toward an all flash data center…

Earlier this month, at the Flash Memory Summit, the buzz was about 3D TLC NAND technology which could soon produce a 16TB 2.5 inch SSD. This would greatly exceed current capacity projections for a comparably-sized HDD. Then, August 20th, Kaminario announced breakthrough pricing which promotes the concept of an all flash data center by incorporating one of the first implementations of a 3D TLC NAND SSD into its flagship product line.
