Yesterday, Search Storage and Storage Magazine announced finalists in six categories for its 2011 Products of the Year awards. We’re very excited that Kaminario was named a finalist in the storage systems category for its K2 Flash and DRAM all solid-state SAN storage.
Two things stand out when you peruse the finalist list. First, eight of the 11 finalists had some mention of SSDs in their descriptions. That shows the momentum SSDs are gaining in the market. Secondly, it is clear that the big storage players do not have a monopoly on innovation. The list includes several emerging companies doing great things, like Kaminario, to help customers enjoy the benefits of SSDs.
We continue to believe that 2012 will be the Year of the SSD. Congrats and good luck to all the finalists. We are happy to be among them.
