Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscape reports recognize outstanding vendors in the technology marketplace. Assessing vendors by the strength of their offering and their strategy for the enterprise, Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscapes pay tribute to the contribution of exceptional vendors in a particular category.Info-Tech’s Trend Setter Award is presented to the most original/inventive solution evaluated.

“Tegile has turned heads with the Zebi Storage Array’s Metadata Accelerated Storage System,” according to the Info-Tech Research Group Research Document Info-Tech Research Group, Vendor Landscape: Small to Mid-Range Storage Arrays, 2014. “Tegile’s differentiators are its deduplication and compression technologies, which increase usable storage while driving performance even on spinning disk media. The Zebi series is a good fit for organizations that demand high performance for VDI and analytic initiatives.”
Zebi storage arrays employ an all-flash storage with hybrid twist that leverages the performance of SSD and low cost per TB of high capacity disk drives, delivering as much as seven times the performance and up to 75 percent less capacity required than legacy arrays. This unique approach has seen marked adoption rates among companies that need faster performance than HDD-based arrays but with less expense than SSD-based arrays.
“We are pleased to be recognized as both a Trend Setter and Innovator by Info-Tech Research Group as part of the select group of vendors evaluated in the organization’s Small to Mid-Range Storage Arrays Vendor Landscape report,” said Rob Commins, vice president of marketing at Tegile. “We’ve worked diligently to offer customers a new generation of flash-driven enterprise storage arrays that balance performance, capacity, features and price for virtualization, file services and database applications.
