Sep 06, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Tegile Systems, a provider of hybrid storage arrays for virtualized server and virtual desktop environments, announced the second-generation of its Zebi OS that provides better and deeper integration with VMware and Microsoft and greater usability through an improved user interface.
According to a release, Tegile's software allows administration and optimizes storage for various applications including virtualization, file services and databases. This latest software release offers management tools and features that deliver improved visibility into the capacity savings that Zebi arrays provide through data reduction so that administrators can see the details of CPU activity, memory utilization, space usage, network activity, disk activity and the status of other key system services at deeper granularity levels.
"Tegile's VM-aware storage systems are designed for the virtualized data center and are demonstrably simpler to deploy and manage compared to legacy storage," said Ken Clipperton, senior analyst of analyst firm DCIG. "By providing customers with the ability to view the health and overall status of the storage system, vendors like Tegile are empowering their users with an important tool that allows them to tune and optimize their virtualized environments."
The company reported that in addition to the new user interface, the new Zebi OS features:
-vCenter plug-in that shows Zebi hybrid arrays within their own storage view tab inside the VMware management console
-NFS for VAAI that expands upon Tegile's unified storage capabilities to support file protocols within VMware environments
-Thin Provisioning Stun VAAI feature to allow for better overall utilization of storage and a reduction of storage costs
-Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Server (VSS) agent for improved data protection
-Ability to collect analytics from server data in the cloud
"The multiple additions we have made in this latest Zebi OS release truly satisfies our desire to provide deeper, more powerful reporting and management to our customers," said Rob Commins, vice president of marketing, Tegile Systems. "Tegile has always been saving customers space through data reduction but with the latest release of the Zebi OS we are making those savings even more visible to users by allowing them to see what they are saving, where they are saving and how they are saving."
Further, the latest Zebi OS will be included with every model of Tegile Zebi arrays beginning this month. Existing Tegile customers can inquire about upgrading their software to the latest revision by contacting their sales representative or emailing the company at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tegile Systems is developing enterprise storage arrays that balance performance, capacity, features and price for virtualization, file services and database applications.
