Tegile Systems Selected as a Red Herring Top 100 North America Tech Startup

Newark, California (EastBayDaily) — Tegile Systems, a pioneer in primary storage de-duplication in virtualized server and desktop environments, today announced that it has been named a Red Herring Top 100 North America Tech Startup, a prestigious recognition that celebrates the year’s 100 startups for their innovation and technologies across their respective industries.

Red Herring’s Top 100 Americas list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube and eBay would change the way we live and work.

“Tegile’s Zebi storage array is a new type of storage system that balances the speed of SSD drives with the capacity and cost-effectiveness of hard disk storage,” said Rob Commins, vice president of marketing, Tegile Systems. “We are obviously very pleased that our company and our technology are a part of such a distinguished group of innovators.”

Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in Americas.

“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Tegile Systems embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Tegile Systems should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”

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.
