Tegile Systems Positioned Among the ‘Visionaries’ of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Solid-State Arrays
Acknowledgement from Gartner makes Tegile the only upstart storage company to be in all-flash and general-purpose
Newark, Calif. – June 25, 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 Solid-State Arrays* report. Tegile is the only upstart storage company to be named among the Visionaries in this and Gartner’s 2014 Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Disk Arrays reports.
The Magic Quadrant for Solid-State Arrays represents vendors that sell into the enterprise end-user market with specific branded SSAs. 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:
- A comprehensive portfolio of Intelligent Flash Arrays, which leverages the same hardware, software and management GUIs for all its storage arrays
- Broad block and file protocol, which makes Tegile one of the few unified SSA offerings
- Selectable data reduction, and detailed instrumentation and data reduction reporting on a storage pool and LUN level
“We are pleased to once again be recognized by Gartner analysts among the ‘Visionaries’ in their well-respected Magic Quadrant reports,” said Rob Commins, vice president of marketing at Tegile. “Whether it is an all-flash array for Tier-1 workloads or a hybrid array that provides the performance of flash at the price of disk, Tegile has shown time and time again its ability to deliver innovative products that address operationally or financially important end-user problems at a broad scale to warrant our inclusion on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant.”
Tegile All-Flash Arrays make it easy and affordable to transition to a flash-centric data center. By delivering maximum performance, high density and compelling economics, the T-Series is ideal for latency-sensitive, business-critical workloads such as online transaction processing, real-time analytics, decision support and data warehousing. The T-Series portfolio enables users to start small and scale in capacity as their business grows. Organizations can start with the T3600 or T3700 to deliver a turbo-boost to legacy storage while deferring equipment replacement before moving up to the T3800 when density and capacity requirements grow.
