Kaminario: Fourth-generation Scale-Out Architecture Flash Array
Kaminario, a Newton, Mass.-based developer of scale-out flash storage technology, in April released its fourth-generation K2 all-flash storage array.
New to the Kaminario K2 v4 is 400 percent more read/write bandwidth than previous versions, with low latency of about 120 microseconds for data writes. The array also provides a 500-percent density increase over previous versions at half the price.
Also new are non-disruptive upgrades, guaranteed performance under any failure with minimal impact, hot-swappable SAS drives, and new high-performance snapshots. The arrays also support virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI), OpenStack cloud computing, and RESTful APIs, along with a choice of iSCSI and Fibre Channel connections.
