Kaminario Named a Finalist in Storage Magazine’s and SearchStorage.com’s 2011 Products of the Year Competition

Kaminario, a leading provider of high performance, all solid-state Flash and DRAM SAN storage solutions, today announced the Kaminario K2 was named among the 11 finalists in the storage systems category in Storage magazine’s and SearchStorage.com’s 2011 Products of the Year competition.

The storage systems category includes Fibre Channel and iSCSI storage-area network, network-attached storage, multiprotocol systems, direct-attached storage, hard disk drives, solid-state storage, disk controllers, caching appliances, storage virtualization appliances and cloud storage gateway appliances.

“We are honored to have the Kaminario K2 recognized in a category that encompasses a broad range of storage solutions,” stated Dan Golan, CEO of Kaminario. “With SPEAR™, its Scale-Out Performance Storage Architecture, the Kaminario K2 is a cost-effective, blazingly fast and reliable all solid-state SAN storage solution that is poised to revolutionize the SSD market.”

The specific Kaminario products honored as a finalist are the K2-F, an all-Flash data storage system, and the K2-H, a hybrid Flash and DRAM system. Both systems were added to the Kaminario K2 family of all solid-state SAN storage solutions in September 2011. The Kaminario K2 allows customers the freedom to choose the right solid-state drive media type for their specific application performance requirements, workload and budget. The Kaminario K2 systems are being used in some of the most demanding mission-critical applications, such as financial trading, ERP, CRM and OLTP. These systems provide self-healing high availability and resiliency against failure at a cost that is lower than that of legacy SAN storage.

Storage magazine and SearchStorage.com have chosen 48 enterprise data storage products in six categories as finalists for the 2011 Products of the Year competition. The panel of judges selected these finalists from nearly 200 entries in the six data storage categories: backup and disaster recovery software and services, backup hardware, networking equipment, storage management tools, storage systems, and storage system software.
