Product Review: Tegile Systems’ T4000 Series of All-Flash Arrays
Large organizations seeking faster, more efficient storage to fuel their enterprise applications can now benefit from Tegile Systems’ new T4000 series of all-flash arrays. Tegile Systems is the leading provider of flash-driven storage arrays for databases, virtualized servers and virtual desktop environments. The new T4000 Series of all-flash arrays meets the needs of high-performance enterprise applications with multiple classes of persistent memory, greater processing power and industry leading density.
The T4000 Series is more comprehensive because of its data reduction benefits. The multi-protocol arrays reduced the capacity up to 75 percent. This boosts performance for production applications up to seven times that of traditional systems. It includes flexibility, inline deduplication, compression algorithms, consolidation of more VMs and the deployment of thousands of virtual desktops.
The T4000 Series delivers maximum performance in conjunction with reducing the database transaction wait time to sub-milliseconds and increasing the speed of analytics. This is achieved while delivering compelling economics. It is ideal for latency-sensitive, business-critical workloads. Your business can begin with the T4500 or T4600 all-flash array to deliver a turbo-boost to your legacy storage while deferring equipment replacement, then you can move up to the T4800 when your density and capacity requirements grow. It provides 2.3 times more memory and 1.7 times more IOPS at one millisecond latency to allow enterprises to support applications with high-performance requirements.
The T4000 Series is more comprehensive because of its data reduction benefits.. The multi-protocol arrays reduced the capacity up to 75 percent. This boosts performance for production applications up to seven times that of traditional systems. It includes flexibility, inline deduplication, compression algorithms, consolidation of more VMs and the deployment of thousands of virtual desktops. It allows for instantaneous point-in-time snapshots that are VM-aware and application-consistent and replicate to a remote site or entire virtual servers that only transmit changed data to reduce traffic over WAN. NAS and SAN come from the same array so there are no more silos of storage in the data center. There is also the flexibility to choose protocol such as Fibre Channel, ISCSI, NFS, CIFS or SMB 3.0.
The T4000 delivers peak performance, incredible economics and a full suite of advanced data services to accelerate applications, eliminate storage silos and reduce storage costs. It includes advanced data services, multi-protocol support and robust management capabilities, enabling you to significantly shrink your storage footprint, maximize uptime, consolidate workloads and simplify storage administration.
Inline compression and deduplication on SSD and hard disk significantly reduce storage acquisition and operational costs. You can shrink thousands of persistent VDI instances to a single boot image stored in flash that can launch in seconds. It includes single-click provisioning through application-optimized aware templates and integrated backup and replication without complex backend software that monitors with a management tool using SNMP. You can deploy hundreds of virtual machines and desktops in minutes, not hours, with a one-click virtual machine optimized storage creation that make LUNs, file systems and RAID groups things of the past.
IntelliFlash™ powers Tegile’s all-flash storage arrays. This software architecture leverages different grades of storage media to deliver optimal performance through speed and latency with the best possible economics. It is a flexible operating environment designed to seamlessly store and manage data across multiple classes of persistent memory in a single storage array.
If your results don’t match your expectations, Tegile will work with you to make it right through its five-point commitment to customers. The main tenant of these commitments is under access to IntelliCare™ Operations Center, Tegile’s cloud-based management portal and award-winning customer support, which is a key differentiator from its competitors like Dell EMC, HPE and NetApp. For example, they will provide free replacement of SSDs if they fail during the lifetime of the array. The IntelliCare™ Lifetime Storage program keeps Tegile arrays fresh and up to date with a refresh of the entire storage system. And IntelliCare™ Cloud Analytics collects millions of different data points from Tegile storage arrays around the world, including capacity usage, configurations and system health and performance to provide predictive support for greater customer success.
The all-flash option is ideal either when your business has a need for real-time analytics, OLTP and for databases. Regardless of which system you choose, Tegile provides the same operating software, feature set and the same experience across its entire product line. Among its many accolades, Tegile Systems won the Storage, Virtualisation, Cloud (SVC) Awards’ SSD/Flash Storage Product of the Year, 2016 and has been named a Visionary by Gartner in 2015 Magic Quadrant for Solid-State Arrays and 2014 Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Disk Arrays.
If cost is a concern for your business, Tegile recommends that you think about “when it costs more to produce enough performance with spinning disks than it costs to provide enough capacity with flash, flash is the most economical choice.” You can get a self-service quote on Tegile’s website that shows just how easy and affordable it is to make the transition to a flash-centric data center with everything bundled in.
