Better data compression?
Been seeing alot more of this company lately, looks like they are still doing well in the AFA space. The article says 30% better but what is that compared to?
Kaminario is getting better data compression by using Intel’s C6268 chipset in its K2 all-flash array's gen 6 storage controllers.

Is this chipset not in GA from intel ? It isn't listed in intel QAT adapters or any of the Intel chipsets .

Chip is not GA yet. Kaminario has them already in testing for a year. These are online upgrades no downtime. Also, Kaminario does not charge for any of its software; it is an all inclusive sale. Replication, Snapshots, TP, Inline, selectable DeDUP and Compression all included.
