Newark, California (EastBayDaily) — Report Highlights Performance, Flexibility, Simplicity in Configuration and Provisioning; Validates Tegile’s Advantage in Balancing Cost and Performance in Variety of Environments
Tegile Systems, a pioneer in primary storage de-duplication in virtualized server and desktop environments, today announced the release of an Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) Lab Validation Report on their Zebiâ¢ Arrays. The report highlights Zebi’s use of its Meta Data Acceleration (MASS) technology that reduces physical data footprint by up to 75%, while accelerating performance up to 7 times that of traditional storage.
The ESG Lab Report found that the Tegile Zebi solution is simple to configure and provision. It is easy to find relevant information about storage resources using the Zebi Dashboard and Wizard. These capabilities enabled ESG Lab to create and configure a pool, project and LUNs with just a few clicks. Additionally, advanced storage configurations (performance, deduplication and compression) were very flexible and settable by project or LUN and the ability to select the number of SSDs assigned to the project ensured that the array would continue to perform optimally as the data set grows.
“ESG Lab testing determined that by selecting the appropriate Application Profile, Tegile Zebi arrays optimize the use of SSD and HDD to enhance IO or throughput performance,” said Brian Garrett, vice president, ESG Lab. “Using the industry standard Iometer workload generator to emulate real-world applications, ESG Lab also validated that the Zebi array was able to provide excellent performance from a very small pool of disks, while inline deduplication and compression had almost no impact on application performance.”
Yellow Pages Agrees “While planning our server virtualization implementation, it became clear that we should include desktop virtualization as well,” said Ben Croxton, IT director, Global Directories, the parent company of U.S.-Yellow Pages. “Storage systems from incumbent vendors didn’t have the performance we’d need over time as we grew. Of the several new hybrid arrays we looked at, Tegile certainly had the most powerful platform, the richest feature set and their entire team has been a pleasure to work with.”
Additional highlights of the ESG Report include: Data reduction. An audit of customer results confirmed Tegile’s claim of 75% data reduction for common business applications and services. ESG Lab also validated that the Zebi array was able to provide excellent performance from a very small pool of disks while inline deduplication and compression had almost no impact on application performance. The Zebi array’s ability to failover and failback completely transparently between storage controllers was also validated, in addition to the ability to reduce disk rebuild times dramatically using Tegile’s MASS technology.

About Tegile’s Zebi Storage Array Technology Tegile Systems is pioneering a new generation of affordable, feature-rich storage arrays that are up to 7X faster, and require up to 75% less capacity, than standard arrays. IT departments use these Zebi arrays to reduce the cost and increase the performance of demanding VDI, server virtualization, and file share applications.
Tegile’s patent-pending technology underpins these achievements. Tegile’s Zebi array uniquely combines a Copy on Write (COW) file system along with proprietary Metadata Accelerated Storage System (MASS) technology to realize the holy grail of storage – high performance, high capacity and high reliability at low cost. It combines this unique technology approach with best in class data protection features and an extremely friendly user interface to take storage to a whole new level of usability.

About Tegile Systems Tegile Systems is pioneering a new generation of enterprise storage arrays that balance performance, capacity, features and price for virtualization, file services and database applications. Tegile’s Zebi line of hybrid storage arrays is significantly faster than all hard disk-based arrays and significantly less expensive than all solid-state disk-based arrays. Featuring both NAS and SAN connectivity, they are easy-to-use, fully redundant, and highly scalable. Additionally, they come complete with built-in auto-snapshot, auto-replication, near-instant recovery, onsite or offsite failover, and virtualization management features. Tegile’s patent-pending MASS technology accelerates the Zebi’s performance and enables on-the-fly de-duplication and compression of data so each Zebi has a usable capacity far greater than its raw capacity.
