VMworld 2017 and Las Vegas once again delivered as the top enterprise storage show in the world. Announcements, acquisitions, huge parties, lots of happy hours, late night dinners, reconnecting with old friends, spotting old nemeses – all before the show really got going on Monday!
The Kaminario #AllFlashSuperHeroes team rolled into Vegas fueled by serious momentum picked up this past summer. We made it into Gartner’s promised land (aka “The Leaders Quadrant” of the 2017 Solid State MQ). We were recognized as the top all-flash array for 3 out of 5 use cases in Gartner’s Critical Capabilities Report. And we recently launched our next generation platform – the K2.N – powered by a fully converged NVMe-oF backend. And we unveiled our vision for composable data storage infrastructure enabled by Kaminario Flex.
We were showcasing the latest and greatest from Kaminario:
- The latest VMware integrations available from Kaminario, including –
- An all new K2 vCenter Server Plug-in based on HTML5 and compatible with vSphere HTML5 client 6.5 / vSphere web client
- A recently announced Kaminario K2 content pack for VMware vRealize Log Insight
- Support for VMware’s VAAI hardware acceleration API
- Total Cost of Ownership Model developed jointly with Enterprise Strategy Group
- Kaminario Clarity – cloud analytics platform that brings the power of big data analytics to storage infrastructure
- Kaminario K2.N and Flex – composable storage infrastructure destined to redefine cloud storage
We also highlighted key partnerships through partner sessions at our booth including those from Eric Wright @Turbonomic, AJ Casamento @Brocade and Kerry Hand @VZURE Solutions talking about hybrid cloud with VMware and Kaminario. You can download all our in-booth presentations here.
VMworld gave us the chance to showcase some of the IT superheros we work with and the data storage superpowers gained by building datacenters on Kaminario. We had the chance to discuss with Storage Switzerland and Wikibon.
We also spent a lot of time talking to people on the floor of VMWorld. Check out this montage of interviews from Kaminario Booth at VMworld 2017.
