Tegile releases the second generation of its Zebi OS software

Tegile releases the second generation of its Zebi OS software 

Zebi OS aims to simplify management and improve storage for variousapplications, including virtualization, file services and databases. The new software has management tools and features that show users the capacity savings that Zebi arrays provide through data reduction. 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 a more in-depth level.

“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.”

In addition to the new tools, Zebi OS has an improved user interface. It features a vCenter plug-in that shows Zebi hybrid arrays within their own storage view tab inside the VMware management console. It also offers NFS for VAAI that expands upon Tegile’s unified storage capabilities to support file protocols within VMware environments, and the ability to collect analytics from server data in the cloud. Other features include the Thin Provisioning Stun VAAI feature to allow for better overall utilization of storage and a reduction of storage costs, and Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Server (VSS) agent for improved data protection. 

“When we were evaluating storage solutions for our organization, we weren’t necessarily interested in everything that was under the hood but whether it could provide us with the performance and capacity we needed at a price we could afford,” said Jeremy DeHart, IT manager of law firm Hedrick Gardner Kincheloe & Garofalo.  “Though we didn’t fully understand Tegile’s ‘secret sauce,’ we’ve come to understand that it is the company’s approach to software that makes the difference.  Tegile has made an already-impressive storage and management system even better with the improvements they’ve included in this latest software update.”

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.
