Connectria Opts for Next Generation Storage with Tegile Zebi Hybrid Arrays

Here’s an excerpt from today’s press release

With the success and growth of Connectria’s cloud and virtual desktop hosting services, we were looking for a storage solution that could complement our existing network architecture while addressing the long-term capacity, performance and scalability requirements demanded by our cloud computing customers.

We turned to Tegile Systems during a proof-of-concept VDI implementation for a large healthcare company when the number of virtual machines began to tax their existing storage infrastructure and needed to be expanded. By swapping out the existing storage for new-generation Tegile Zebi hybrid storage arrays, Connectria was able to manage the fluid requirements of the healthcare provider’s VDI environment easier, faster and more reliably at a vastly reduced cost compared to other arrays.

“We offer a wide range of services to SMBs and Enterprises along with customized HIPAA-compliant solutions to healthcare and dental customers designed to safely and securely store protected information,” said Rusty Putzler, Vice President of Engineering at Connectria. “When we realized that we needed a different class of storage to satisfy the higher capacity and higher growth requirements of a VDI infrastructure at one of our healthcare customers, we turned to Tegile’s Zebi arrays to fulfill that tactical need. With inline de-duplication of 87 percent and 33 percent compression ratios, Tegile has provided us with outstanding performance at a cost per terabyte that is perfectly geared towards virtualized environments.”

Tegile Zebi arrays leverage the performance of SSD and the low cost per TB of high capacity disk drives to deliver up to seven times the performance and up to 75 percent less capacity required than legacy arrays. Zebi hybrid arrays combine Tegile’s patent-pending MASS technology with high performance DRAM, solid state flash, Intel Xeon processors and high speed Ethernet or Fiber Channel, resulting in higher capacity and significantly higher performance. Maximizing capacity, on-the-fly de-duplication and data compression enable more hosted virtual desktops for a lower investment in storage and network infrastructure.

Combine Connectria’s cloud services with Tegile storage and you have a winning combination.  Have any questions on Tegile? Let us know and we’ll answer them in an upcoming post.
