Kaminario, the leading all-flash array provider for mid-range enterprises, today announced it was selected as one of 2014’s hottest emerging technology vendors by CRN, the top news source for solution providers and the IT channel. The annual Emerging Vendors list identifies up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers. This is the fourth year running that Kaminario has been recognized in this category.
“This has been a monumental year for Kaminario, with the launch of our fifth-generation K2 setting a new standard for enterprise storage solutions,” said Dani Golan, founder and CEO of Kaminario. “We’re in the midst of a pivotal time for the storage market, with enterprises increasingly looking to adopt all-flash arrays for their primary storage needs. Being named an Emerging Storage Vendor by CRN once again is a testament to Kaminario’s leadership in the flash storage industry, and our commitment to delivering new levels of agility and cost-effectiveness to our customers.”
The launch of the fifth-generation of Kaminario K2 back in May introduced the most cost-effective all-flash storage solution on the market at an average price of $2/GB usable capacity, in addition to many industry-first features built specifically to address the needs of the modern data center. The success of the product just three months after launch demonstrates Kaminario’s ability to dominate in the flash storage space and validates the demand for efficient, cost-effective and scalable storage solutions across enterprises worldwide.
“Solution providers are always on the hunt for the next big technology trend so that they can bring new solutions to their customers before they even know they need them. These vendors are on the forefront of IT innovation and are offering products and services that channel partners can use to stay ahead of the competition,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. “We congratulate 2014’s Emerging Vendors for creating the next wave of technology that will drive the IT industry forward and for opening the door to new, unique solutions from the IT channel.”
