ViON Corporation, a market leader in the design, delivery and support of mission-critical IT infrastructure solutions, and Kaminario, a leading all-flash storage company, announced today a partnership to provide flash storage to Federal agencies focused on increasing efficiency and modernizing legacy IT infrastructure. ViON will implement the Kaminario K2 all-flash storage array with an as-a-Service model, enabling agencies to more rapidly move workloads to the Cloud. This solution is critical to a modern infrastructure and is in alignment with the cloud-first initiative, ensuring FedRAMP and FISMA compliance.
The announcement comes at a time when there is a growing demand for ViON’s unique as-a-Service offering within the Federal market. Kaminario is already included on three of ViON’s contract vehicles including: CIO-CS, SEWP Group B SDVOSB and NCPA.
“Advances in all-flash storage are reshaping strategies for application delivery infrastructures and changing SaaS economics in the Federal marketplace,” said Tom Frana, President and CEO of ViON Corporation. “Our partnership with Kaminario will allow customers to gain new cost efficiencies, along with the performance, scalability, and agility needed to achieve their objectives.”
Kaminario focuses on redefining the future of modern datacenters and helping customers scale their evolving business, without disruptions.

“Kaminario is focused on being the all-flash storage provider for the as-a-Service world. Whether for government, financial services, healthcare, retail or enterprise apps-as-a-service, we help our customers grow their businesses easily and cost effectively,” said Itay Shoshani, Chief Revenue Officer, Kaminario. “This partnership with ViON creates an elegant solution for our government clients to realize the benefits of all-flash storage while confidently managing the realities of modern digital government.”
“As with all IT organizations, there is enormous potential for those in the Federal government to streamline themselves, and create more efficient and agile infrastructures; in this case to address the specific needs of modern digital government,” said Mark Peters, Practice Director & Senior Analyst at the Enterprise Strategy Group. “Partnerships between forward-thinking service providers like ViON and innovative datacenter technology companies like Kaminario can play a valuable role in helping to pragmatically and affordably modernize IT organizations across the full spectrum of US government agencies.”
