Overview: Financial institutions deploy multiple business critical applications in order to be competitive and meet the informational demands of their internal users and customer base. These applications are either online (OLTP) or batch processing for next business day. Customer relationship management (CRM), risk management, tax liability business intelligence, and data warehousing are just a few examples of applications that are storage I/O intensive. Unfortunately, today's storage technologies have not kept up with the sophistication or performance of systems, networks, databases, and applications. Eighty percent of applications’ and databases’ performance issues are related to storage I/O bottlenecks as a result of disk latency.
To address the root of the application and database performance problems, financial institutions’ IT organizations need to resolve any impediments in their storage infrastructure that prevent applications and databases from delivering maximum responsiveness.
This whitepaper discusses how the Kaminario K2 unique Scale-out Performance Architecture (SPEAR) is a combination of hardware and software that enables the Kaminario K2 DRAM storage appliance to deliver extreme application performance as well as scale capacity when the need arises; significantly improving storage performance in the most critical and demanding financial applications.
