Kaminario Announces K2 Now Available to Citrix XenDesktop Customers
Mar 5 15
Kaminario announced that its K2 all-flash array has been verified as Citrix Ready® for XenDesktop®  versions 7.0, 7.1, 7.5 and 7.6. The certification brings XenDesktop customers a storage array that delivers predictable performance, architectural flexibility and reliability at an average price of $2/GBusable. VDI customers are faced with storage challenges throughout the lifecycle from pilot deployment to rollout. Designed to handle even the most complex VDI environments, K2 can alleviate these concerns for VDI users by delivering: boldConsistent and Predictable Performance: K2 can reliably handle the worst-case boot storms that would overwhelm other storage systems. boldCost Efficiency: K2 is the most economical all-flash array on the market, with effective storage cost per desktop as low as $20. All advanced storage features are included with the array at no additional cost. boldResiliency and Scalability: Desktops run undisturbed even in the case of multiple SSD failures. Users and capacity can be added non-disruptively while upgrades and expansions can be carried out with no loss of desktop responsiveness. boldEase of Deployment and Management: Compatibility with Citrix XenDesktop simplifies deployment, and because K2 requires no manual tuning and many features are automated, K2 doesn't require a dedicated storage administrator.
Kaminario Unveils All-Flash Primary Storage for Mid-Range Enterprises
May 23 14
Kaminario announced the release of its fifth-generation K2 (K2 v5) all-flash primary storage array. K2 v5 is an all software-inclusive storage solution, with average pricing $2/GB usable and guaranteed effective capacity. In addition to consistent and predictable performance across single or multiple workload environments, K2 v5 delivers on all three critical needs of enterprise storage; resiliency (guarantees 24/7/365 demand), macro efficiency (reduces CAPEX and OPEX by more than 50%) and business agility (drives 10 times more productivity). In order to keep up with modern data center trends and evolving business needs, organizations must harness the power of solid-state (SSD) technology to increase the flexibility, performance and consistency in their storage solutions. With K2 v5, Kaminario provides enterprises with the most affordable, all software-inclusive solution on the market that encompasses these features. The fifth-generation K2 is the only true, all-flash storage solution that can be implemented in data centers as primary storage at a lower cost than HDD based or hybrid storage arrays. With the most efficient architecture in the industry, high capacity utilization and lowest metadata footprint, K2 noted its differentiators translate into tangible customer benefits, including: Flexible, Consistent and Predictable Scale of Performance and Capacity: The only all-flash array that supports both scale-up and scale-out architectures, allowing organizations to start small (and only pay for what they need), and grow capacity and performance based on their needs. Patent pending global variable block size algorithms automatically adapt to single or mixed workloads, thus simplifying the customers' combined OLTP, OLAP, big data and virtual infrastructure and saving on server hardware and software licensing costs. Most Flexible and Scalable Data Reduction: Also the only all-flash array to support selectable global inline deduplication, an advantage for virtual environments and ability to turn it off which is a significant advantage for database environments. Global inline deduplication, inline compression, thin provisioning and 87.5% utilization K-RAID lead to the high capacity utilization within an organization. Comprehensive Enterprise Resiliency: Native application-aware, high performance, space efficient and scalable snapshots, native asynchronous snapshots-based replication, non-disruptive hardware and software upgrades, built-in redundancy and dual parity K-RAID provide the high levels of availability. Proactive and Comprehensive HealthShield: Cloud-based call-home, analytics and events-based alerts are preventive, predictive, insightful and actionable, allowing organizations to avoid unexpected downtime, increase overall productivity and reduce costs. Automated capacity management improves uptime, while comprehensive dashboards and alerts enable capacity forecasting and performance planning. Manageability/Tight Ecosystem Integration: Unlike legacy storage arrays, K2 v5 is extremely simple to use and does not require a dedicated storage administrator or special training and certifications. Fully automated operations with no setup or tuning required -- including a rich and friendly GUI, a full set of RESTful APIs, and support for Microsoft VSS, Oracle RMAN, vCenter plug-in and VAAI -- greatly simplify the day-to-day operations and reduce OPEX. The K2 v5 is available now with the exception of the replication capabilities (which will be made available in H2 2014). K2 comes with all inclusive-software pricing (no extra licensing or charges for software features), and the hard guarantee that Kaminario will provide free hardware if guaranteed effective capacity needs are not met. Finally, forklift upgrades are eliminated with the ability to mix and match controllers and SSDs.
