Newark, Calif. – July 24, 2014 – Tegile Systems, the leading provider of flash-driven storage arrays for databases, virtualized server and virtual desktop environments, announced today it has been recognized as one of 2014’s hottest emerging storage technology vendors by CRN, the top news source for solution providers and the IT channel.  The annual Emerging Vendors list identifies up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers.

Tegile intelligent storage arrays are purpose-built to deliver optimized storage performance for various application workloads including server virtualization, virtual desktops (VDI), online transaction processing (OLTP) and real-time analytics. The company’s patented IntelliFlash™ architecture enables IT departments to balance high performance, capacity and features with game-changing storage economics. Tegile storage solutions are optimized to support business applications such as Microsoft SQL Server and Exchange and are certified to work with industry-leading solutions from Citrix, Cisco and VMware.

Tegile arrays are sold exclusively through the company’s reseller channel to provide customers with best-in-class products and services to meet their IT infrastructure needs.  Tegile provides dedicated sales and technical resources to resellers to help close new business while its unique architecture offers the unparalleled functionality, flexibility and ease of use needed to cut storage expenditures in half, multiply performance 5-7X and easily manage storage without adding staff.  Customers have the option to purchase units outright, lease them or go with a capacity-utilization model through Tegile’s Agility Pricing Program.

“Solution providers are always on the hunt for the next big technology trend so that they can bring new solutions to their customers before they even know they need them. These vendors are on the forefront of IT innovation and are offering products and services that channel partners can use to stay ahead of the competition,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN.  “We congratulate 2014’s Emerging Vendors for creating the next wave of technology that will drive the IT industry forward and for opening the door to new, unique solutions from the IT channel.”

“We are pleased to have been named to this year’s Emerging Vendors list,” said Rob Commins, Tegile vice president of marketing.  “Earning recognition for our innovative solutions and approach to selling through the channel from a respected industry publication such as CRN is extremely rewarding.  We feel that this award is a validation to our commitment to our exclusive partner eco-system and the efforts we make to ensure that our partners continue to profit from the sale of our best-in-class products and services.”
