NEWTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 12, 2013) - Kaminario, the leading scale-out flash array provider, today announced the appointment of Dana Loof as vice president of marketing. With a strong track record for building world-class brands, Loof will lead the development, coordination and execution of the company's marketing strategies including product marketing, field marketing, and corporate communications.

"While the large storage vendors have been promising Scale-Out all-flash arrays for years, the truth is Kaminario has been the only vendor to actually deliver in spades," said Dana Loof, vice president of marketing, Kaminario. "Kaminario's fourth generation general purpose all flash array outperforms all other flash startups in performance across any workload, while providing enterprise-class resiliency. As the large vendors say, this kind of performance can only be found from a true Scale-out architecture, and Kaminario has been delivering that since 2010. This is an incredible time in the company's trajectory to start."

Loof previously held senior level positions at Symantec and VERITAS where she led global advertising, as well as EVault, a Seagate Company, where she was responsible for worldwide marketing and led the company through a successful acquisition by Seagate Technologies. Most recently, Loof served as the executive vice president of worldwide sales and marketing of Pano Logic, the former leader in zero client desktop virtualization, which was acquired in 2013. During her time at Pano Logic Loof spearheaded the company's expansion efforts into Europe and Latin America, as well as launched its two-tiered partner program.

"As the provider of the only enterprise scale-out flash array on the market, we are not just transforming today's storage standards but fundamentally changing the way business gets done," said Dani Golan, CEO, Kaminario. "Dana's proven experience delivering a clearly differentiated message will help grow our presence in the market and provide more companies with a storage solution that is able to scale with their needs as they change over time."

Prior to her work with VERITAS Loof began her career at Oracle where she led a cross-functional team of product, field and corporate marketing to develop integrated strategic marketing campaigns. Loof received her Bachelors of Science degree in international business with an emphasis in marketing from San Francisco State University's College of Business.
