Kaminario K2 DRAM storage appliance showcases performance benefits for critical business applications
NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 8 -- Kaminario, a leading provider of extreme performance DRAM storage appliances for accelerating critical business applications, today announced its storage input/output (I/O) acceleration performance results in a variety of customer application use cases. Kaminario will be showcasing these results in booth #4757 next week at Supercomputing 2010 (SC10) in New Orleans, La.
"As the worldwide focus on high performance computing, Supercomputing 2010 is the perfect stage for Kaminario to demonstrate the results of its extreme application performance," said Gareth Taube, vice president of marketing at Kaminario. "Every business, no matter what the size, has applications that require the high performance that only the Kaminario K2 can deliver, combined with the added benefits of high availability, scalability and ease of use."
The Kaminario K2 DRAM storage appliance eliminates storage I/O bottlenecks, delivering extreme performance to accelerate critical applications. The Kaminario K2 is based on Kaminario's unique Scale-Out Performance Architecture (SPEAR), a distributed, scale-out architecture for maximum storage performance. SPEAR enables the Kaminario K2 appliance to deliver low I/O latency and high throughput, high availability and resiliency, and easy storage management and performance monitoring. The Kaminario K2 enables organizations of any size to accelerate data access and maximize the performance of their most demanding applications. Kaminario uniquely combines the following features to help businesses fully leverage their system, storage and application investments:
Performance -- The Kaminario K2 eliminates I/O bottlenecks and delivers 300,000-1,500,000 IOPs and 3.2-16 GBs of throughput, enabling a 2-25-fold application performance improvement. Performance is consistent for any workload, with no degradation over time, and requires no tuning.
High Availability -- The Kaminario K2 has no single point of failure and supports automated hardware and data recovery. With internal data protection and dual universal power supplies, it reliably maintains data availability and integrity.
Scalability -- Based on standard, high-end blade components, the Kaminario K2 modularity enables any size organization to scale performance and capacity independently as needed.
Easy -- Built on industry-standard components, the Kaminario K2 is viewed by the host system as a standard block device. Kaminario is application-, database- and file system-agnostic, and can be seamlessly integrated within any IT infrastructure. Organizations of any size can move their most strategic applications to Kaminario K2 appliances without modification or disruption. Its automated data distribution delivers maximum performance right out of the box and takes less than one day to deploy. The Kaminario single-system management and performance monitoring capabilities provide easy serviceability.
In addition, Kaminario's performance experts provide its customers with unparalleled application and storage performance assessment, problem resolution and consulting.
In real-world customer testing of the Kaminario K2 storage appliance, application performance improvements include the following outstanding results:
Kaminario's ability to speed data access and application performance allows businesses to do more, faster. These and other application and industry use cases are the focus of Kaminario's exhibit at SC10 and in its latest webinar, I/O Performance -- Solving the Application Storage Bottleneck.
