Kaminario K2 Sweeps Global Competition, Wins Best of Show at 2014 Flash Memory Summit

K2 v5 All-Flash Array Selected as "Most Innovative Flash Memory Technology"

NEWTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/07/14 -- Kaminario, the leading all-flash array provider for mid-range enterprises, today announced its selection as the "Most Innovative Flash Memory Technology" at the Flash Memory Summit's annual Best of Show awards, which recognizes the most significant storage and flash technologies that are spearheading innovation within the industry. The fifth generation of Kaminario K2 beat out nearly 30 other companies in the most competitive award "system" category, for its ability to address modern enterprise storage pain points, including scalability, flexibility and cost, at an average price point of $2/GB usable that rivals HDD solutions and all other all-flash array providers.

"The next wave of all-flash arrays will need to hit new levels of CapEx and OpEx savings to further expand their mainstream adoption. Our panel of judges were looking for a product solution that pushes the envelope with innovation to deliver new levels of agility, scalability and cost effectiveness," said Jay Kramer, chairman of the Awards Program and president of Network Storage Advisors Inc. "We are proud to select Kaminario K2 for its game-changing capabilities, including high-density packaging leading to significant footprint, power and cooling savings, in addition to global inline deduplication/compression, thin provisioning and K-RAID for storage capacity efficiency to name just a few."

The judges of the Flash Memory Summit Awards faced the challenge of selecting the Best of Show Innovation winner from an incredibly large and qualified pool of applicants in the category, including a number of leading all-flash array providers. Kaminario K2 was selected as it offers new levels of data availability, performance and an unprecedented scale-up and scale-out architecture that sets the standard for other storage solutions in the future.

"We have been working tirelessly from day one to create an all-flash array solution that meets the fundamental storage needs of today's enterprises," says Dani Golan, founder and CEO of Kaminario, "This award demonstrates our commitment to providing the most efficient, cost-effective and scalable all-flash array solution on the market. We look forward to helping new and existing customers optimize their operations with our leading flash storage solution, and as companies increasingly turn to flash for their storage needs, we will continue striving to provide companies with 'storage done better.'"

Kaminario K2 harnesses the power of SSD technology to increase flexibility, performance and consistency in enterprise storage solutions. As the first all-flash array solution on the market to offer companies the ability to scale-up and/or scale-out, K2 enables customers to start small and grow both performance and capacity as their business needs evolve. In addition, K2 is the only true, all-flash storage solution that can be implemented in data centers as a primary storage solution at a lower cost than HDD-based or hybrid storage arrays. K2 has the most efficient architecture in the industry, highest capacity utilization and lowest metadata footprint, and is the only array to uniquely deliver on all three critical needs of enterprise storage: macro efficiency, resiliency and business agility.

Kaminario received the Best of Show award last night at the Flash Memory Summit event in Santa Clara, California. For more information on Kaminario K2, visit http://kaminario.com/flash-array/.
