Tegile Improves Storage Infrastructure Over Aging Incumbent Technology for CollabNet

Tegile Systems, the leading provider of flash-driven storage arrays for databases, virtualized server and virtual desktop environments, today announced that CollabNet, a leader in open Application Lifecycle Management, has selected its Intelligent Flash Storage System to provide the "future-forward" technology needed to provide the features and performance of its hosted solutions.

CollabNet provides industry-leading products, plus Agile consulting and training services, to help organizations of all sizes develop and deploy software faster. CollabNet is the creator of Subversion and a pioneer in open Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) solutions. By providing innovative tools and methodologies at scale, CollabNet enables companies to bring together distributed teams, increase productivity, accelerate time to market and reduce costs.

Brought in to "shake things up," CollabNet's Senior Director of Worldwide Operations and Corporate IT Richard Moon began to look into alternatives for the purpose of replacing its aging NetApp infrastructure.

"CollabNet was primarily a NetApp shop when I came aboard," said Moon. I was looking at other alternatives since NetApp's model was to force upgrades on us. We needed to do what we were doing with NetApp but I wanted to do it better. We wanted a future-forward technology."

Tegile Intelligent Flash Storage Arrays with IntelliFlash help boost storage utilization and efficiency and deliver unmatched storage savings and performance. Tegile's flash arrays deliver a comprehensive set of data management capabilities while seamlessly supporting different storage media (hard disks, dense flash, high-performance flash) under a single storage operating system. Companies like CollabNet can dial up or down the amount of flash storage to meet the specific performance needs of their applications to provide the high performance of flash with the economics of disk storage.

Tegile's data services features, including remote replication, snapshots, mirroring and inline deduplication provided CollabNet with the future-forward technology that it was looking for. In addition to helping the performance of its Subversion SCM management environment, the switch to Tegile's Intelligent Flash Arrays provided CollabNet with the storage resources needed to migrate its CloudForge collaborative application development offerings in house, which were previously hosted externally.

"When faced with a hardware refresh, companies need not simply replace their existing storage with more of the same in order to maintain their mission-critical business infrastructure," said Rob Commins, vice president of marketing at Tegile. "Today, there is a new class of enterprise storage systems that are faster, and oftentimes, less expensive than legacy arrays. We're pleased that our Intelligent Flash Arrays could offer CollabNet the comprehensive set of data management capabilities and appealing economics it needed to satisfy its customers' needs for enterprise agility at scale."
