Tegile Systems Positioned Among the ‘Visionaries’ of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Disk Arrays

London - 28 October 2015

Gartner once again keeps Tegile as the only next generation storage company included in the general-purpose and all-flash Magic Quadrants

Tegile Systems, the leading provider of flash-driven storage arrays for databases, virtualised server and virtual desktop environments, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner Inc. in the “Visionaries” quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Disk Arrays”* report. Tegile is the only next generation storage company to be named among the Visionaries in the General-Purpose and Gartner’s 2015 “Magic Quadrant for Solid-State Arrays” reports.

The Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Disk Arrays is based on products that are designed to satisfy the storage needs of a diverse set of workloads hosted across multiple virtual or physical servers. The market segment covered includes hard-disk drive (HDD) and hybrid midrange (solid state drive [SSD] plus HDD back-end configurations with autotiering functionality), high-end and NAS systems. Each vendor in the Magic Quadrant is evaluated based on its ability to execute (product/service, overall visibility, sales execution/pricing, market responsiveness/record, marketing execution, customer experience and operations) and its completeness of vision (market understanding, marketing strategy, sales strategy, offering (product) strategy, business model, vertical/industry strategy, innovation and geographic strategy). Vendors in the Visionaries quadrant deliver innovative products that address important operational or financial end-user problems on a broad scale.

Gartner recognised Tegile as a Visionary for the following reasons:

The same hardware, software architecture and technology are used across its entire storage array portfolio.
Selective in-line data reduction and compression allow customers to select data reduction where required and, just as importantly, to disable it for unsuitable workloads.
All software features are included in the base price of the storage array.

“We are pleased to be recognised for the second year in a row by Gartner analysts among the ‘Visionaries’ in their well-respected Magic Quadrant reports,” said Rob Commins, vice president of marketing at Tegile. “Rather than forcing companies to make do with limited product offerings, we believe that they should have flexibility of choice in fulfilling their exacting needs. Only Tegile offers a comprehensive portfolio of Intelligent Flash Arrays, which include both all-flash and hybrid models, enabling our customers to choose the storage solution that’s right for them. “


Tegile hybrid arrays leverage flash, hard disks and the rich features of the IntelliFlash™ operating system to deliver high performance with the economics of disk storage. With faster processors for improved performance and increased memory capacity, Tegile’s latest hybrid arrays deliver a compelling storage platform that accelerates a wide variety of workloads in the enterprise. This allows customers to choose the storage solution that is best suited for their particular environment and is ideal for those looking to maximise performance while still achieving disk economics.
