Oracle OpenWorld Survey Results Reveal 55% of Attendees Experience Performance Problems With Critical Business Applications
Kaminario, a leading provider of high-performance, general-purpose all solid-state (SSD) SAN storage solutions, today announced results of a survey conducted at Oracle OpenWorld 2012, which showed 55% of respondents reported having critical business applications that suffer from less-than-optimal response times or performance. The survey results validate the need for a high-performance all solid-state SAN storage solution such as the Kaminario K2 for eliminating the I/O bottlenecks that stall business applications. Kaminario recently released a benchmark showing a record-breaking 2 million-plus IOPS with high throughput and low latency on a single K2 system.
During the Oracle OpenWorld exhibition held Sept. 30 through Oct. 4, 2012, 417 attendees completed surveys asking them about the performance of their business applications, the impact of that performance on their businesses, the aspects of data protection that are crucial to their business operations and their use of flash storage. When asked to identify the greatest impact slow applications have on their businesses, 40% of respondents cited low employee productivity, while 36% indicated poor customer satisfaction. With respect to data protection, 41% cited high availability as the top concern, followed by high-speed replication (21%).
Regarding adding flash to their storage systems to improve performance, 30% surveyed have tried flash storage, up dramatically from last year's survey. These results show that IT managers are turning to flash-based storage solutions to improve application and database performance. By improving the performance of business applications, 48% of survey respondents would most expect to see higher customer satisfaction and 23% would expect it to result in increased employee productivity.

Kaminario provided a demonstration at its Oracle OpenWorld booth of the K2's industry-leading performance of 2 million-plus IOPS and 20 GB/s throughput on a single MLC-based all-flash K2 storage system.
Founded by storage experts from EMC, NetApp and IBM, Kaminario is leading the Flash SSD revolution in SAN storage. The Kaminario K2 family of all solid-state SAN storage eliminates I/O bottlenecks and dramatically reduces latency to accelerate critical business applications at a significantly lower cost and with a smaller footprint than legacy SAN storage.
