Tegile Integrates With Cisco to Unite Flash Storage With Hybrid Cloud Management for Enterprises
Integration allows enterprises to seamlessly manage storage, compute and networking from a single user interface, increasing agility and operational efficiency
LAS VEGAS – Cisco Live, Booth #3049 – July 11, 2016 – Tegile Systems, the leading provider of flash-driven storage arrays for databases, virtualized server and virtual desktop environments, today announced an integration with Cisco UCS Director to orchestrate and automate an end-to-end IT converged infrastructure management process.
IT deployment of data center resources make the difference between a successful enterprise and an ineffective one. Tegile’s IntelliStack integration with Cisco UCS Director improves consistency efficiency and speed. Through the integration, enterprises are able to deploy the latest in flash storage technology from Tegile supported with the Cisco UCS Director interface that manages infrastructure components including compute, network, virtualization and storage as well as public clouds such as Amazon and Azure.
“Tegile and Cisco already have a long-standing partnership, but by further integrating our technology we’re helping enterprises optimize their entire infrastructure management process with the latest innovation in flash storage at its core,” said Rob Commins, Vice President of Marketing at Tegile. “Extending our partnership with Cisco provides exceptional flexibility and power for our rapidly expanding enterprise customer base to increase their efficiency and leverage public cloud providers.”
By combining Tegile’s IntelliStack with Cisco UCS Director, enterprises are able to replace manual provisioning and de-provisioning of private and public cloud data center resources with automated workflows, ultimately reducing delivery time from days to weeks. Tegile’s industry-leading data reduction capabilities also lower capital expenses by enabling real-time monitoring, dynamic load balancing and optimum resource usage. As a result, enterprises better manage a breadth of flash-based workloads and easily scale applications to support the success of their organizations.
“Our customers use Tegile arrays and Cisco compute for a wide variety of workloads including scaling virtual machines, email and databases,” said Kerry Hand, Director of Business Development at vZure, a Cisco Cloud Integration Partner. “We’ve received positive feedback that validates that together Tegile and Cisco provide seamless management of companies’ IT infrastructure.”
“Tegile’s integration with UCS allows UCLA to seamlessly manage storage, compute and network via a single user interface,” said Jarett Horinouchi, Network Administrator at UCLA Social Sciences Computing. “This makes it easy for us to scale applications and orchestrate workloads across virtual machines, and ultimately achieve a new level of efficiency in our operations.”
The integration is a multi-hypervisor solution with support for VMware ESX, Microsoft Hyper-V and Red Hat KVM hypervisors and public clouds such as Amazon and Azure. IntelliStack with Cisco UCS Director’s task library allows orchestration, workflow management, and single-touch deployment of virtual machines, hosts, and virtual networks. In addition, a broad OS guest support facilitates cloning of Windows and Linux virtual machines, and monitors host and virtual machine memory and resource use.
