    In No Man's Land

    I think Kaminario's days are numbered but it has nothing to do with the technology.

    For the size of the accounts they attempt to penetrate, they are underfunded and as a result understaffed, under-supported.

    GTM change...1 more time !

    First targeting the HPC, then claiming General-Purpose, then SaaS, and at the end transitioning to Software-Only before releasing the famous K2.N, Kaminario seems in trouble as in the meantime they closed UK, lost their CTO and say good by to all their partners. I will definitely not consider this vendor as serious enough to put a single bit of my production data.

    Good People let go at K2

    Sorry to see people let go @ K2. Good product, that is hardened, but terrible marketing. The whole SuperHero theme?? Wonder who is responsible for that. It is typical of an engineering company not to be able to market correctly and miss the target market; thus the redirection again. Dani Golan has his hands full and has good vision, however when Mr. Magoo is running marketing it is difficult for him to see anything.

    I wish them Luck in the new strategy.
