Brian Madden interviews Tegile and becomes a fan of our single-instance storage appliance for VDI

Brian Madden has written many articles on the problems storage can cause for VDI. He has made it known that he believes VDI should be used for 1-to-1 personal disk images instead of many-to-1 shared disk images.Unfortunately, this isn’t possible with local storage built-in to servers, and it’s not cost effective with traditional SANs.

This is where Tegile comes in. Our Zebi array is a hybrid HDD/SSD/DRAM primary storage appliance that’s perfect for VDI. (So much so that even Brian likes it, and you know that’s a tough thing to do!) In this video, Brian visited Tegile’s office to meet with our CTO, discuss their product, and learn how it works. He also got a demo of the management interface. Watch this video and learn about Tegile’s approach to storage for VDI.

    I had a rocky start with Tegile’s sales team, but once they understood my requirements, their solution looks pretty good when you stand it up against incumbent vendors and other start-ups. Their marketing material talks about a $16,000 entry price – that is for a single controller system. For anyone looking at serious production applications, you should look at their dual controller HA2100 line. It can be had for just under $40,000 at street price. If you are looking at Nimble Storage or Tintri, take a look at Tegile and see for yourself.
