Most organizations already own legacy spinning disk arrays from EMC, IBM, HP, HDS, Dell, etc. They have expertise with managing those systems and typically get good service from these companies. So there are three options:

1. buy a hybrid flash array from their incumbent vendor and gain 7-10X performance increase

2. buy a hybrid flash array from a new vendor and gain 7-10X performance increase

3. Point your high performance applications to an all-flash array and gain 70X performance increase, while continuing to leverage your legacy spinning disk for applications that don't require higher performance, along with aged data.

At Kaminario, we believe that an all-flash array is the best solution and what's special about our technology is we have decoupled our software stack from the hardware, yet are the SPC-1 and SPC-2 performance benchmark leader with the same system using enterprise grade commodity MLC SSD. No tuning necessary, sets up in hours (including the installation) and runs automatically. Scale-out is embedded in our code from the onset and as you add more capacity we add more CPU, memory, and connectivity ports to always ensure only one hop from the host, and sub ms latency. So whether you need to support 12TB or 1.2PB which we can deliver in only 24U, the savings and performance are paramount. Our variable block size capabilities allow for application consolidation of mixed workloads regardless of the block size in question. We deliver a 7 year warranty with our SSD and we enjoy 100% customer satisfaction with 80% of our customers buying more capacity and upgrading with us. The DIRECTION is towards flash so isn't it time to invest in a system that can get you there for your hot applications today and all of your applications tomorrow...we are TLC ready. It's as simple as porting our software stack to the latest and greatest commodity hardware of the day. That's the Kaminario way!

Perhaps the Kaminario way should be to send a configuration to the StorageReview lab for review instead of advertising in our forums ;)


We do enjoy the back and forth fighting between you guys and Violin especially, but neither of you are open to independent evaluation. As long as all you want to do is control the message, little of what you say can be taken without a pinch of salt. Welcome to the forums though.
