Tegile’s Rob Commins presents at annual flash memory summit

Newark, Calif. – July 29 2014 – Tegile Systems, the leading provider of flash-driven storage arrays for databases, virtualized server and virtual desktop environments, today announced Rob Commins, Tegile vice president of marketing, will present at the upcoming Flash Memory Summit as part of the panel “Flash Solves Enterprise Storage Problems – How do we Pay for it?” Commins joins colleagues from NetApp, Skyera, Pure Storage and Samsung, along with chairperson and independent consultant Frank Ohlhorst.

Market research shows most enterprise users will overpay for performance they don’t need, and sacrifice capacity. Commins will address the price/performance value of hybrid and all-flash arrays that are architected to deliver consistently high performance at costs that continue to near hard disk based array pricing.

“I will talk about Tegile’s all flash storage arrays designed to meet the needs of complex environments and specialized applications such as real-time financial transactions, HPC and scientific research environments, where higher costs are justified,” said Commins. “However, for a majority of environments, hybrid arrays can deliver lower costs, the flexibility of NAS and SAN from the same array, no-brainer installation, compression and dedupe, and performance high enough to deploy hundreds of VDIs in minutes, so most users don’t have to overpay for all-flash or bolted together legacy arrays.”

Flash Memory Summit, held August 4-7 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, is the world’s largest event dedicated to flash technologies from consumer to enterprise applications. The panel takes place Thursday August 7th from 2:00-3:30 p.m.

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, triple performance 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.
