The Kaminario K2 storage, architected from the ground up as an all solid-state, high performance, highly available shared SAN storage solution, meets the demand from enterprises looking to dramatically improve the performance of high I/O and latency sensitive applications. The K2 significantly cuts the cost and footprint of legacy SAN storage while providing substantially greater application performance. As part of the companies' collaboration, Kaminario will incorporate the Fusion ioDrive Duo as a memory accelerator in its all solid-state SAN storage and its Scale-out Performance Storage Architecture (SPEAR). Kaminario and Fusion-io will also team up to bring the Kaminario K2 family of products into joint customer environments. These combined efforts reinforce the companies' commitment to remove the barriers enterprises currently face in obtaining high performance and highly available SAN storage at a price point that makes sense. "Today's businesses need enterprise-class solutions to meet the demands of I/O- and latency-bound applications such as OLTP and databases," said Jim Dawson, executive vice president worldwide sales, Fusion-io. "Kaminario and Fusion-io have combined Fusion's solid-state technology with Kaminario's self-healing high availability and an all solid-state SAN storage architecture to deliver unsurpassed performance and enterprise-grade reliability, at a highly competitive price point."
