Kaminario K2 [EOL] Review

The ratio between the physical storage and the storage we use is high.

Valuable Features

It has a very good duplication rate; very, very good. The ratio between the physical storage and the storage we use is very high. Good performance.

Room for Improvement

I think it should have better performance with small files. With big data, its performance is top notch, but it is difficult to load small files.

Stability Issues

We had problems before. It crashed a couple of times, but we had good support from Kaminario. They gave us another storage app and we could replicate between the two, so if the crashes continued, we had another app. They fixed the crashing problem and since then, it's been okay.

Scalability Issues

I think it is scalable. You can buy another shelf any time you need one.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Technical support is very good. We had quick response for anything we needed.

Initial Setup

Initial setup is straight forward; very simple, web administration.

Other Advice

It's a good solution. I think it’s a bit expensive. As a technical guy, I don't look at that side very much. It's a good solution overall.
