Tegile Systems: Redefining the HDD vs SSD Storage Battle

CIO VendorRohit Kshetrapal, CEO
Server and desktop virtualization has changed the rules in the data center yet again. The scenario has made the ongoing struggle between managing cost per terabyte and cost per I/O more difficult to manage than compared to anytime in the past. Although solid-state drives (SSD) are available in legacy storage systems as a tier, their architectures remain to be unsuited for solid-state technology.While other vendors develop SSD only arrays and claim competitive cost structures with compression and deduplication technology, Tegile systems, headquartered in Newark, CA, has taken a different balanced approach to this pain point.

Under the leadership of Rohit Kshetrapal, CEO, Tegile has redefined flash storage in the HDD vs. SSD battle.
The company’s flagship suite, ‘Zebi arrays’ leverage the performance of SSD and low cost per TB of high capacity disk drives to deliver up to seven times the performance and up to 75 percent less capacity required than legacy arrays, which are infamous for their low speeds and high energy consumptions. Tegile do not simply use SSDs as a tier of storage in our arrays; Tegile has architected the performance benefits of SSDs throughout the data path, giving every application a performance boost with flash storage.

The company’s hybrid arrays have been engineered to be faster than legacy arrays and less expensive than all solidstate disk-based arrays. The secret is in incorporating both NAS and SAN connectivity, which are easyto- use, fully redundant, and highly scalable.Additionally, they come complete with built-in snapshot, replication, nearinstant recovery, and irtualization management features.

Moving forward the company looks set to pioneer the next generation of flash-driven enterprise storage arrays that balance performance, capacity, features and price for virtualization, hence redefining the flash storage scenario today.
