Tegile Systems Earns 'Excellent' Rating in 2015-16 DCIG Buyer's Guide
Tegile Systems, the leading provider of flash-driven storage arrays for databases, virtualized server and virtual desktop environments, today announced that its T3400 hybrid flash storage array was among the Top 10 products rated in the DCIG 2015-16 Enterprise Midrange Array Buyer's Guide, outperforming and outranking several veteran and entrenched products from vendors such as Dell, EMC, Imation, Oracle and others.

The DCIG Buyer's Guide provides clear and concise feature and functionality comparisons of midrange storage area network arrays through the creation of standardized data sheets representing more than 70 specific array models from 16 providers, with the features of the most robust model in the family represented on the data sheet. Excellent ranked arrays surveyed in the Buyer's Guide, such as Tegile's T3400, represent the cream of the midrange SAN crop, according to the report, and generally shared characteristics of 0.5 standard deviation above the mean in overall score; rankings of "excellent" in at least two of the five scoring categories; provide concurrent SAN and NAS support; and support multiple snapshot and storage capacity optimization methods.

The Tegile T3400 hybrid flash storage array, which is ideal for those looking for maximum performance, capacity and storage economics for workload consolidation, was said to be a good fit for a wide range of enterprises and earned particularly high scores for management, virtualization and support. Tegile previously earned the "Best-in-Class" ranking among hybrid storage arrays in the DCIG 2014 Hybrid Storage Array Buyer's Guide and placed in the Top 5 of the DCIG 2013 Flash Memory Storage Array Buyer's Guide.

"Awards and recognition like this are more than the proverbial pat on the back for a job well done to those hardworking men and women who make up our ranks here at Tegile - they are a validation of our place in the industry and a benchmark for how customers might expect our solutions to work for them," said Rob Commins, vice president of marketing at Tegile. "We're the only 'newcomer' to have been ranked by DCIG in the Enterprise Midrange Array, Hybrid Storage Array and Flash Memory Storage buyer's guides. We've recently been named a Visionary by Gartner in their Magic Quadrant report for General-Purpose Disk Arrays. Our products and our channel approach to sales have been vetted by industry media and analysts alike for several years now and continue to provide us with a growing history of excellence."

Tegile's Intelligent Flash Arrays allow customers to choose a flash storage solution that is right for them. The company's hybrid arrays are faster than legacy arrays and less expensive than all-flash arrays to provide the ideal balance of performance and cost for a wide range of consolidated and virtualized business workloads. Tegile's T3400, Tegile offers a storage architecture featuring half of its capacity in flash SSDs and half in HDDs, resulting in a 20X increase in flash density over previous models.
