Kaminario’s home grown replication delivers a superior replication solution between K2 arrays. For customers deploying Kaminario in conjunction with other storage arrays FreeStor enables superb data migration and disaster recovery capabilities.
“In today’s complex multi-vendor datacenter ecosystem, applying the most scalable and capable all-flash arrays with the most-effective and capable software-defined storage platform enables customers to better meet the evolving needs of enterprise storage,” said Eyal David VP of Business Development of Kaminario. “FalconStor provides a key accelerator to enter the enterprise-class marketplace by supporting seamless migrations and multi-vendor environments adding some key features on top of our already impressive flash arrays. The ability to quickly and easily migrate workloads onto the K2 allows us to simplify customer adoption of the K2 solution.”

The result is greater efficiencies, reduced downtime, lower costs and improved simplicity. By offering FreeStor technology as part of its solution, Kaminario is able to deliver enterprise customers best-in-class price/performance flash without impacting their business through FalconStor’s array-to-array synchronous mirroring technology.
