Analyst and Media Reaction to the DataProtect Launch
It has been just over a month since Kaminario launched the DataProtect™ high availability and data protection capabilities for the Kaminario K2 product line. Analyst and media reaction has been very positive — highlighting the advantages and challenges that we have ahead.
After reviewing the DataProtect coverage, three messages stood out:
- High availability and data protection features such as DataProtect are needed for SSDs to be accepted as a HDD replacement in the data center;
- Kaminario is moving beyond the high-performance storage niche segment and aiming squarely at primary storage;
- DataProtect gives Kaminario some advantages but market competition is very aggressive.
Just to recap the coverage highlights, I’d like to share a selection of comments that capture much of the feedback we have observed.
