I have written several times before about how the Kaminario K2 storage appliance eliminates I/O bottlenecks. The difference is easy to understand when an I/O demanding application is running on storage with a millisecond response time (non Kaminario K2) versus microseconds (Kaminario K2).
The Kaminario K2’s impact on the application performance is noticeable, not just on the I/O side, but also in other performance areas such as CPU utilization, network throughput and more. First, the best measurement and affect by far is on duration times: jobs, tasks, queries will run faster and this is obviously the goal of upgrading the infrastructure; to improve performance. But as mentioned above, high performance storage will have other effects on the system. I have recently read a very good post on The impact of SSD technology on the network and CPU where Dennis Martin talks about new bottlenecks that can be introduced as a result of adding SSDs to a system.
