K2 works well in our mixed-use virtual environment. I would not hesitate to place any workload on K2, it has always performed well. We use fiber-channel connectivity as it replaced our large legacy storage array, replacing one rack of spinning disks with 4U of flash.

If you are evaluating SAP products, it is easy to get started with the SAP Cloud Appliance Library. Cost comparisons are provided. On-premise solutions are easily tested by non-IT users. It is simple to use at a low cost. I recommend anyone evaluating SAP products to try it out.

We performed a bake-off with K2 and one other vendor and they performed identically. K2 pricing was aggressive, performance was great, and it offered the features that we needed at a price that we could afford
