Quantifying the Value of Kaminario’s K2 All-flash Storage Arrays

ESG Economic Value Validation

Published August 2017

ESG was engaged by Kaminario to conduct a detailed Economic Value Validation (EVV) and develop a quantitative model examining how an investment in Kaminario K2 all-flash arrays can benefit an organization over a three-year or fiveyear period.

The analysis is designed to help IT organizations determine the fully burdened costs and benefits of deploying K2 storage with a “present mode of operation” (PMO) that reflects a blend of either traditional or purpose-built all-flash storage arrays available on the market today. This analysis is built upon ESG’s evaluation of Kaminario, in-depth interviews with Kaminario customers and internal technical stakeholders, end-user case studies, ESG qualitative and quantitative market research with IT decision makers, and ESG’s general familiarity with all-flash storage arrays and the storage market. It is designed to provide prospective customers with a comprehensive picture of the potential direct and indirect cost and benefit drivers they should bear in mind when considering an investment in a K2 all-flash storage array.
