Kaminario’s storage software subscription gives IT organizations a new alternative for building business-critical storage infrastructure. With the elasticity of consumption-based software pricing, cloud-scale datacenter operators can achieve new levels of datacenter economic efficiency.
Consumption-based pricing changes the way IT organizations think about storage utilization. Kaminario’s subscription-based software offering lets datacenter operators pay for what they actually use.
Kaminario delivers enterprise class, all-flash storage capabilities with the flexibility of software-defined infrastructure. Leveraging the economics of commodity hardware and usage-based software pricing, Kaminario’s subscription-based software offering is a new paradigm for building cloud-scale datacenter infrastructure.

“This bold move to a software-only model increases Kaminario’s appeal to a broader set of customers than before without giving up any of the advantages of the appliance-based consumption model. Kaminario worked with channel partners to craft a go-to-market strategy that ensures that customers that still want storage appliances will have the same customer experience as before, but the addition of the software-only model provides additional flexibility that offers more choice and better economics for certain other types of customers, in particular cloud service providers.”

“The public cloud has changed the way that service providers must think about delivering their own as-a-service offerings. Service providers that want to be viable five years from now need to craft software-defined datacenter strategies that can compete with, or augment, AWS.”
