Managed Health Care Associates Scales Performance With Kaminario All Solid-state SAN Storage
Newton, Mass. – September 13, 2011 – Kaminario, the leading provider of high performance all solid-state SAN storage, today announced that Managed Health Care Associates Inc. (MHA), a leading health care service company, has selected the recently announced Kaminario K2 Hybrid all solid-state SAN storage to extend and scale the performance of their database systems.
"Kaminario allowed us to scale out to the level of performance and redundancy that we needed to reduce report delivery times," said Gregory S. Thomas, Vice President of Information Technology, Managed Health Care Associates Inc. "The K2 enabled us to consolidate our database environment onto one fast, reliable and scalable storage system to meet the increasing demands from our users."
The new Kaminario K2 Hybrid is the industry's first all solid-state SAN storage solution that supports both DRAM and Flash media, with self-healing high availability at a significantly lower cost and a smaller footprint than legacy SAN storage. The K2's innovative Scale-Out Performance Storage Architecture™ (SPEAR) — with its dynamic data distribution, parallelized I/O processing and self-healing high availability.
"When application performance slows down and people cannot obtain the information they need in a timely manner, productivity and responsiveness to customers is seriously impacted," said Dani Golan, CEO, Kaminario. "The Kaminario K2 all solid-state SAN storage provides MHA with the scalable performance and self-healing high availability its database environment needs to keep up with the pace and demands of its growing business."
