Tegile Systems, a company that deals in primary storage de-duplication in virtualized server and desktop solutions, recently announced that Lynn University has selected the company’s storage array for the highly secure and separate storage environment being deployed for the upcoming presidential debate, to be held October 22 at Lynn University campus.
Zebi arrays leverage the performance of SSD and 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. The company uses SSDs as a tier of storage in the arrays, and has architected the performance benefits of SSDs throughout the data path, giving every application a performance boost with flash storage.
Tegile’s MASS architecture has been enhanced with the addition of FlashVols to maximize performance. Now, large and medium enterprise customers who need high-performance and high-availability storage will benefit from flash-grade performance without incurring the costs traditionally associated with high RPM disk drives.
“Tegile, using its Zebi product, provided Lynn University with the storage environment that is the backbone for the server environment comprised of some 20-25 virtual servers,” said Chris Boniforti, Chief Information Officer, Lynn University.
“Having won the university’s request for proposal process earlier this year we are diligently working to assemble the technology that will bring the debate to millions of people and households,” said Rob Commins, vice president of marketing, Tegile Systems. “We are honored to be a part of American history in this important way.”
In related news, Tegile Systems recently announced its storage arrays have been verified as Citrix Ready following a rigorous verification process to ensure compatibility with Citrix products, providing confidence in joint solution compatibility.
