Kaminario Named a Visionary in Gartner's 2015 Magic Quadrant for Solid-State Arrays

Evaluation Based on Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jul 2, 2015) - Kaminario, the leading all-flash storage array provider for mid-range enterprises, today announced it has been named a Visionary in Gartner's 2015 Magic Quadrant for Solid-State Arrays*. The second-annual Magic Quadrant for SSAs is based on detailed market research of 13 solid-state array vendors, evaluated on their ability to execute in the market and their completeness of vision. Kaminario improved its position in "Ability to Execute" and "Completeness of Vision" from last year's report, moving up the Visionaries quadrant towards the Leaders category. Kaminario's Magic Quadrant results follow the launch of its fifth generation all-flash array, recent funding focused on innovation and expansion, and significant sales and partnership momentum.

"Since our founding, we've been dedicated to disrupting the storage industry by transforming data center economics and our customers' businesses with our flexible, resilient and cost-efficient all-flash array," said Dani Golan, CEO of Kaminario. "Kaminario's success is reflected in our rapidly growing and satisfied customer base, significant investor confidence and further EMEA expansion -- all of which we feel has improved our position in this year's Magic Quadrant."

Kaminario's K2 all-flash array was also analyzed by Gartner in its June 25 Critical Capabilities for Solid-State Arrays report, which evaluated 11 SSAs across six use cases to define durability, flexibility and performance. The report's findings and analysis also incorporated feedback from a handful of customers using each SSA. Its K2 product scored among the top three in all use cases, including: overall use case (3.52 out of 5), online transaction processing (3.52 out of 5), server virtualization (3.48 out of 5), virtual desktop infrastructure (3.54 out of 5), high-performance computing (3.56 out of 5) and analytics (3.54 out of 5).

The Gartner reports come at the heels of recent significant company momentum since Kaminario launched v5 of its K2 in Spring 2014, including:

  • Closing record bookings in 2014, and more than 300% year-on-year growth in bookings in Q1 2015;
  • Raising $68 million in Series E for a total of $143 million in overall funding;
  • Recently naming Jim Dawson to its Board of Directors and Andreas Koenig to its Advisory Board;
  • Announcing the launch of Kaminario's highly differentiated and Gartner noted ACCELERATE partnership program;
  • Significant sales, personnel and market expansion in the Americas and Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) markets.
