Kaminario started the day with a background presentation from Josh Epstein on the company, including new offices, expansion of sales teams and an increase in Q1 sales year-on-year of 120%.  This was followed by a customer presentation from Nuance (Frederic Van Haren) on the use of Kaminario K2 for voice processing.  Shachar Fienbit (Kaminario CTO) then discussed the futures of all-flash arrays, including how media and connectivity can be expected to be implemented.  The final presentation was from Shai Maskit, demonstrating the new quality of service functionality.

The second set of presentations was from Primary Data.  Lance Smith started the day off with background on the company and the development of the technology.  David Flynn followed on with an in-depth discussion of the Primary Data technology; DataSphere and DSX (the software running on client servers).  Currently there’s no ability to span data centres with the technology.  The logical assumption is that over time, customers should start replacing traditional arrays and move towards commodity storage with DataSphere as the abstraction layer.  Finally Kaycee Lai presented a demo of the solution, with use cases and cost savings.
