“It’s a floor wax! It’s a dessert topping! Wait, it’s a floor wax and a dessert topping!”

I couldn’t help but laugh when I read Kerry Dolan’s post about Tegile’s Zebi Array. She said our system reminded her of the SNL classic “Shimmer Floor Wax” skit.  Man, that brings back memories of the good ol’ days of that show.  The skit is a parody of the over the top claims many vendors make about the capabilities of their products.

Here is the catch though: ESG Labs evaluated our storage system and compared their findings against our marketing claims.  Here is what they found:

“But in Tegile’s case, the all-in-one concept really works. It works for SAN; it works for NAS.  To keep capacity to a minimum it has both deduplication and compression, but can also optimize performance for both IOPS and throughput.  Efficient?  Check.  Flexible?  Check. Thin provisioning?  Snapshots? Replication?  Check, check, check.”

Come see for yourself at VMworld 2012 in San Francisco – we are in booth #1923.  We will be showing many of the powerful functions of our system.  But wait – there’s more!  You can try your chances to win a new Tesla Model-S or a Toyota Prius!
