Tegile Executives Discuss How to Get the Best of Both Worlds with Hybrid, All-Flash Arrays at Flash Memory Summit
Tegile Systems, the leading provider of flash-driven storage arrays for databases, virtualized server and virtual desktop environments, today announced that company CEO Rohit Kshetrapal and product marketing manager Chris Tsilipounidakis are featured speakers at Flash Memory Summit taking place August 11-13 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif.  In addition, the company will be showcasing its comprehensive portfolio of Intelligent Flash Arrays in Booth No. 720 of the event.

Kshetrapal will be a keynote speaker, presenting "Hybrid or All-Flash Array: Both are Right for Data Centers," August 13 at 2 p.m.  He will address how individual situations at organizations is the best deciding factor as to which approach is best suited for implementation.  All-Flash arrays tend to be ideal for mission-critical applications that require fast performance whereas hybrid arrays may be the solution of choice when cost considerations are significant.  Attendees will learn how intelligent flash arrays, which assigns flash to particular applications depending on their needs or importance, can be used with examples of how these solutions have performed in real-world situations.

Tsilipounidakis is a presenter on the Enterprise Applications Part 1 forum at 8:30 a.m. on August 11.  His presentation, "To Flash or Not to Flash Isn't the Question – How to Flash is the Question," will address IT managers concerns about deciding how much flash is enough for their particular environments, how price-performance differentials warrant looking at different flash approaches, and what data management challenges or opportunities they may encounter with hybrid storage vs. all-flash systems.

On display at Flash Memory Summit are Tegile's Intelligent Flash Arrays, which enable the transformation of an IT infrastructure, delivering lightning-fast performance and high levels of availability at a cost that's one-third of traditional storage arrays. Tegile arrays are fully redundant with no single point of failure. All media are dual-ported and accessible through a pair of active/active controllers. Users can also take instantaneous, space-efficient snapshots that can be replicated for disaster recovery. Inline compression and deduplication on SSD and hard disk throughout the array helps significantly reduce storage acquisition and operational costs. Redundant operating system images in a virtual server platform are reduced to a single instance stored in flash. Hundreds or thousands of persistent VDI instances are shrunk down to one single boot image that can launch in seconds.

Flash Memory Summit showcases the mainstream applications, key technologies, and leading vendors that are driving the multi-billion dollar non-volatile memory and SSD markets. Flash Memory Summit is now the world's largest event featuring the trends, innovations, and influencers driving the adoption of flash memory in demanding enterprise storage applications, as well as in smartphones, tablets, and embedded systems.  Additional information about the event is available at
