VMworld 2012: Storage Takes Center Stage (Part 2)


Newark, Calif.-based Tegile Systems, a developer of primary storage deduplication technology for virtualized server and desktop environments, showcased enhancements to its high-availability Metadata Accelerated Storage System (MASS) architecture and the extension of its product line with the addition of two new storage arrays, the Zebi HA2400 and Zebi HA2800. Tegile’s MASS technology separates metadata from the primary data path and optimizes functions such as deduplication, compression, RAID and snapshot pointers, which the company said reduces capacity by up to 75 percent while accelerating IO by up to seven times when compared to traditional storage systems.
