Kaminario K2 Review

Provides deduplication, compression, snapshots, and asynchronous replication without separate licensing.


How has it helped my organization?

The functionality is very good.

What is most valuable?

It provides a full feature set without separate licensing (deduplication, compression, snapshot, asynchronous replication, stable performance, etc.).

What needs improvement?

I would like them to come down in price. It is as expensive as EMC, Hitachi, and other major vendors.

I would like them to improve the look of the product’s external casing and shelves.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There were no stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There were no scalability issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

I would rate technical support with an 8 out of 10.

How was the initial setup?

The software part of the installation was easy. The hardware piece was more complex due to a lot of cables.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Violin Memory, Hitachi, Pure Storage, EMC, and XtremIO.

What other advice do I have?

This solution is very easy to use and helped me technically.
