Tegile Systems Positioned Among the ‘Visionaries’ of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Disk Arrays

Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

Newark, Calif. – Las Vegas, NV – December 2, 2014 –Tegile Systems, the leading provider of flash-driven storage arrays for databases, virtualized server and virtual desktop environments, today announced from the floor of the Gartner Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Conference, that it has been positioned by Gartner Inc. in the “Visionaries” quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Disk Arrays”* report.

The Magic Quadrant represents vendors that sell into the end-user market with branded general-purpose disk storage systems, which are designed to address shared storage requirements within a single system that can support multiple virtual or physical servers, hosted virtual desktop (HVD) infrastructure, multiple databases and files.  The market segment includes midrange, high-end and network-attached storage systems, and hybrid arrays.  Each vendor in the Magic Quadrant is evaluated based on its ability to execute (product/service, overall visibility, sales executive/pricing, market responsiveness/record, marketing execution, customer experience and operations) and its completeness of vision (market understanding, marketing strategy, sales strategy, offering (product) strategy, business model, vertical/industry strategy, innovation and geographic strategy).

Gartner recognized Tegile as a Visionary for the following reasons:

    • IntelliFlash storage systems support FC, iSCSI, Network File System (NFS), and Server
      Message Block (SMB; aka Common Internet File System [CIFS]) protocols, and IntelliFlash
      ecosystem support aligns well with its target markets.
    • IntelliFlash’s architecture has comprehensive instrumentation, utilizes different flash
      technologies for read/write caching, and enables users to independently scale performance and
      capacity to meet application needs.
    • Aggressive pricing, when necessary, coupled with compression and deduplication of primary
      active data, gives IntelliFlash a strong value proposition.

“We are grateful for this recognition by the Gartner analysts and their placement of Tegile on the Magic Quadrant,” said Rohit Kshetrapal. “It is an honor that further reinforces our approach to providing customers with the breadth of offerings found in our comprehensive portfolio of Intelligent Flash Arrays so that they can choose a storage system that is right for them. Whether looking for the perfect balance of performance and costs or needing the fastest speeds and lowest latencies, we’ve got you covered.”

Tegile’s mission is to accelerate the transformation of enterprise IT by changing the performance and economics of enterprise storage. Tegile’s Intelligent Storage arrays are purpose-built to deliver optimized storage performance for various application workloads, making them an excellent fit for mission-critical virtualized environments. The company’s patented IntelliFlash™ architecture with inline deduplication and compression enables IT departments to balance high performance, capacity and features with game-changing storage economics.

IntelliFlash easily integrates into diverse enterprise IT environments by supporting SAN and NAS deployments from the same array with Fibre Channel and iSCSI block-level protocols, as well as NFS and CIFS file-level protocols. Tegile provides high-performance, low-latency storage to the hypervisor while allowing users to simultaneously share files via NFS. And unlike other array vendors that at best only provide compression, Tegile’s data optimization also provides inline data reduction to further reduce acquisition and operational costs critical in virtual environments.
