The Lowdown: Founded in 2008, Kaminario promises extreme performance for accelerating business applications via its K2 all solid-state storage solutions. Built on the Boston-based company's Scale-out Performance Storage Architecture (SPEAR), Kaminario's K2 line supports millions of IOPS and tens of GB/s of throughput that the company said can eliminate I/O bottlenecks with a lower cost and smaller footprint than legacy SAN storage. Kaminario is application, database and file system agnostic, according to the company, and can scale to fit any size business.

Kaminario is looking to boost its partner roster and is seeking partners who work with local and regional financial institutions, telcos, Web service providers and government agencies across North America and EMEA.
