PetMed Express Improves Database And Application Performance By 400 Percent

Kaminario, a leading provider of high performance all solid-state (SSD) SAN storage solutions, today announced that PetMed Express (Nasdaq:PETS), America’s leading online pet pharmacy, has chosen the Kaminario K2 to accelerate its operational processes and daily reporting. After installing the K2, PetMed Express saw a 400 percent performance improvement in its report processing and operational processes.

PetMed Express needed to resolve I/O-intensive database issues that were slowing down its warehouse operations and call center reporting capabilities. The company needed a solution that would enable it to keep its current storage infrastructure but improve storage performance by at least 50 percent. Cautious about the issues around SSD reliability, PetMed Express looked for a high performance SSD storage solution that would also provide high availability and data protection.

I/O wait issues caused by high drive latency prevented the PetMed Express database from performing as expected, and the company was faced with the decision of continuing to add more drives or replacing the entire storage system. To speed up reporting and daily operation processes, the business required a leading-edge storage system that combined the speed of a high performance SSD SAN with high availability and data protection capabilities.

PetMed Express chose the Kaminario K2. The K2’s blazingly fast performance and low latency immediately impressed PetMed Express. The business saw a 400 percent performance improvement in its report processing and operational processes.

“These results far exceeded our expectations,” stated Chris DiGiacomo, systems director, PetMed Express. “The Kaminario K2 solution enabled us to maintain our current database environment and get more life out of our existing systems.”

DataProtect, the K2’s built-in high availability and data protection capabilities, enabled PetMed Express to consider Kaminario’s high performance SSD SAN solution without the fear of drive failures or data loss. According to DiGiacomo, “Those features made the decision to go with the K2 much easier.”
