NEEDHAM, Mass., Sept. 21, 2016 – Kaminario, a leading all-flash storage company, today announced Kaminario Clarity – a cloud-based analytics platform that extends the capability of its flagship all-flash storage array, Kaminario K2 – to enhance performance of on-demand apps and boost IT productivity. Kaminario Clarity includes a comprehensive set of management and monitoring functionalities, including a unique capability to leverage application-level intelligence, machine learning and big data analytics – all of which enable customers to get more productivity out of their storage environment and deliver higher performance for business-critical applications.
Kaminario Clarity simplifies infrastructure management with a single view of different layers of the data center stack that have been traditionally managed in isolation. Aggregating data across the full application delivery infrastructure, Clarity enables rich app-aware data services including simplified Quality of Service (QoS). Machine learning techniques applied to customer data delivers actionable insights on workload placement, performance tuning, fabric configuration, database optimization that have direct impact on user experience, cost efficiency, and business productivity.
“Enterprise IT and storage management are complicated with advanced functions like QoS completely isolated to storage resources,” said Shachar Fienblit, CTO, Kaminario. “With Clarity, we can now leverage data and trends across the IT infrastructure and optimize specific storage systems to boost performance of critical applications and simplify management.”
Kaminario K2 all-flash array delivers the agility, scalability, performance and economics a datacenter requires to deal with today’s unpredictable IT environment. Kaminario Clarity further extends the company’s lead in delivering all-flash solutions to on-demand application providers by incorporating application-level intelligence in cloud-based management, analytics, and optimization utilities designed for application providers.
“Cloud-based prescriptive analytics platforms are one of the features that differentiate next generation network-based arrays from the prior generation’s enterprise storage workhorses,” said Eric Burgener, research director in enterprise storage at IDC. “By providing actionable input to storage administrators based on extensive monitoring and the application of big data analytics, these platforms simplify system performance optimization, capacity planning, availability management and other routine operational tasks, providing significant value relative to legacy approaches which are much more labor-intensive.”
Clarity will be available in 1H 2017.
