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

Gartner once again keeps Tegile as the only upstart storage company to be in the general-purpose and all-flash Magic Quadrants

Newark, Calif. – October 27, 2015 –Tegile Systems, the leading provider of flash-driven storage arrays for databases, virtualized server and virtual desktop environments, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner Inc. in the “Visionaries” quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Disk Arrays* report. Tegile is the only upstart storage company to be named among the Visionaries in this General-Purpose and Gartner’s 2015 Magic Quadrant for Solid-State Arrays reports.

The Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Disk Arrays is based on products that are designed to satisfy the storage needs of a diverse set of workloads hosted across multiple virtual or physical servers. The market segment covered includes hard-disk drive (HDD) and hybrid midrange (solid state drive [SSD] plus HDD back-end configurations with autotiering functionality), high-end and
NAS systems. Each vendor in the Magic Quadrant is evaluated based on its ability to execute (product/service, overall visibility, sales execution/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). Vendors in the Visionaries quadrant deliver innovative products that address operationally or financially important end-user problems at a broad scale.

Gartner recognized Tegile as a Visionary for the following reasons:

  • The same hardware, software architecture and technology are used across the vendor’s entire storage array portfolio.
  • Selective in-line data reduction and compression allow customers to select data reduction where required and, just as importantly, to disable it for unsuitable workloads.
  • All software features are included in the base price of the storage array.

“We are pleased to be recognized for a second year in a row by Gartner analysts among the ‘Visionaries’ in their well-respected Magic Quadrant reports,” said Rob Commins, vice president of marketing at Tegile. “Rather than forcing companies to make do with limited product offerings, we believe that they should have flexibility of choice in fulfilling their exacting needs. Only Tegile offers a comprehensive portfolio of Intelligent Flash Arrays, which include both all-flash and hybrid models, enabling our customers to choose the storage solution that’s right for them. Our ability to deliver innovative products that address operationally or financially important end-user problems on a broad scale is highlighted by our inclusion on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant.”

Tegile hybrid arrays leverage flash, hard disks and the rich features of the IntelliFlash™ operating system to deliver high performance with the economics of disk storage. With faster processors for improved performance and increased memory capacity, Tegile’s latest hybrid arrays deliver a compelling storage platform that accelerates a wide variety of workloads in the enterprise, allowing customers to choose the storage solution that is best suited for their particular environment and are ideal for those looking to maximize performance while still achieving disk economics.
