CIOsynergy Announces @Tegile Systems as Official Sponsor of its Houston Event
CIOsynergy, a provider of thought-leading events, today announced the participation of Tegile Systems at its event at the Hotel ZaZa Houston in Texas October 16.

Tegile’s mission is to accelerate the transformation of enterprise IT by changing the performance and economics of enterprise storage.  Tegile’s Intelligent Storage arrays are purpose-built to deliver optimized storage performance for various application workloads, making them an excellent fit for mission-critical virtualized environments. The company’s patented IntelliFlash architecture with in-line deduplication and compression enables IT departments to balance high performance, capacity and features with game-changing storage economics.

IntelliFlash easily integrates into diverse enterprise IT environments by supporting SAN and NAS deployments from the same array with Fibre Channel and iSCSI block-level protocols, as well as NFS and CIFS file-level protocols.  Tegile provides high-performance, low-latency storage to the hypervisor while allowing users to simultaneously share files via NFS.  And unlike other array vendors that at best only provide compression, Tegile’s data optimization also provides inline data reduction to further reduce acquisition and operational costs critical in virtual environments.

“We are thrilled to have Tegile Systems at CIOsynergy Houston,” said Patrick Mason, director of communications and marketing at CIOsynergy.  “As the leading provider of flash-driven storage arrays for databases, virtualized server and virtual desktop environments their presence will provide event attendees with an additional layer of industry insights and thought leadership.”

“With demand growing for bigger data and faster service, an enterprise’s choice of storage can make or break their business,” said Rob Commins, Tegile vice president of marketing.  “We look forward to our sponsorship of and participation at CIOsynergy, where we can enlighten attending CIOs to the importance of implementing solutions that can make their mission-critical environments easier to manage with faster, more-reliable, more=scalable and less-expensive storage arrays than standard hard disk-based systems.”

CIOsynergy Houston is an exclusive opportunity for leading local CIO and IT executives to network and brainstorm how to overcome daily hurdles within an unparalleled learning environment, under the umbrella of keynote of the event, John Sculley.  Sculley is one of America’s best-known business leaders, with one foot in the storied history of Apple technology and the other planted firmly in 21st century innovations that change the way the world does business.  Few entrepreneurs have been as successful across so many fields as Sculley.  His success stories include telecommunications, financial services, healthcare, high technology, Internet services, consumer marketing and IT supply chain.

Sculley was Pepsi-Cola Co.’s youngest CEO, leading the firm through its high-growth years with hugely successful experience-marketing innovations – “Pepsi Generation” and “Pepsi Challenge” – to become the largest-selling consumer packaged goods in America.  In 1982, Steve Jobs was building the first Macintosh computer and believed the future of computing would be shaped by ease-of-use and he recruited Sculley to Apple as CEO to teach the company how to do big brand-experience marketing. The Macintosh introductory TV commercial at the 1984 Super Bowl became the most-famous advertising campaign of all time.

Since leaving Apple, Sculley and his Sculley Brothers Family Office has helped many high-technology serial entrepreneurs build some of the most disruptively innovative technology-enabled firms. These include MetroPCS, HotWire, NFO Research, Intralinks and Credit Trade. Currently, Sculley is a mentor and investor in mobility and Big Data analytics; consumerization of healthcare; database marketing; IT supply chain; and emerging financial services.

At CIOsynergy Houston, a panel of leading CIOs, moderated by Scott Shuster, will share and explore how CIOs can be successful in their role.  Shuster has led virtually every Businessweek CEO, CFO and CIO conference held since the founding of the magazine’s events group – more than 100 of the world’s most-prominent gatherings of large-company leaders and senior executives.
