Flash-Optimized Software Architecture
IntelliFlash Arrays are powered by Tegile’s IntelliFlash software architecture. This fast, flexible operating environment is designed to leverage different grades of storage media hard disk, high-performance flash, high-density flash, etc in a single storage array. IntelliFlash understands the inherent characteristics of different storage media and intelligently manages the placement of data to deliver optimal performance (speed and latency) with the best possible economics. It also includes advanced data services, multi-protocol support and flexible management capabilities.
IntelliFlash HD is the latest storage innovation from Tegile Systems. By combining Tegile’s multi-controller scale out architecture and data management services with SanDisk’s latest flash technology in a high-density package, IntelliFlash HD delivers up to 5 million IOPS and 10 PB of effective capacity from a single rack, for less than 50 cents per effective GB.
Some of Tegile’s happy customers
Aer Lingus: Ireland’s national airline has solved its storage problems by implementing Tegile’s flash driven storage arrays. Swamped with an ever-growing amount of data stemming from all areas of its business, Aer Lingus needed to find a scalable, cost-effective solution to supplement its existing EMC storage. The airline chose Tegile to alleviate its storage problems due to its scalability, high performance and unique combination of compression and deduplication.
The Bank of Stockton: Established 146 years ago, making it the oldest bank in California. With sixteen branches spread across the state, they’re small enough to quickly adopt new technologies. They’ve been early adopters to electronic, internet and mobile banking. That said, they started having trouble with their VDI environment. Virtual desktops were slowing down and it was difficult to get repairs fast enough. With Tegile’s help, they upgraded their enterprise storage and their VDI performance issues became a thing of the past.
