The Kaminario K2-D SPC-1 benchmark beat all competitive SPC-1 benchmarks to date, setting new records for the Storage Performance Council and raising the bar for other SSD storage providers. The Kaminario K2-D SPC-1 result reported an average of 10 GB/s of data throughput, with a 40% /60% Read/Write workload, while consistently performing at 1.2M IOPS with very low average latency of 3.44ms.
The Kaminario K2-D also demonstrated the best SPC-1 price/performance ever recorded at $0.40 per IOPS, proving that a high performance SSD storage system can be cost-effective.
The Kaminario K2-D also demonstrated the most consistent sustained performance over the longest time ever recorded in an SPC-1 benchmark; the test ran for a landmark 24 hours.

Kaminario K2 family of all SSD SAN storage eliminates I/O bottlenecks and dramatically reduces latency to accelerate critical business applications at a significantly lower cost and smaller footprint than legacy SAN storage. Kaminario uses off-the-shelf blade servers, a revolutionary SPEAR® storage OS and flash and DRAM solid-state media to create blazingly fast, highly available, and easy to deploy SAN storage. Driven by Kaminario’s innovative Scale-out Performance Storage Architecture™ (SPEAR), the K2 supports millions of IOPS, tens of GB/s of throughput, extremely low latency, and all without compromising on enterprise reliability or ease of use. Kaminario is a fundamentally new and better way to store and retrieve performance sensitive data.
Many solid-state storage solutions require that customers purchase two systems for high availability. This is not a cost-effective or scalable solution.
