Tegile has unveiled its new IntelliFlash HD flash storage platform that it claims is the first such system that can bring hyperscale performance and economies of scale to the enterprise data centre market as storage demand rockets.
The system is ideally suited for customer pursuing “aggressive consolidation of data centres” and dealing with the explosion of big data and the problems it creates, ranging from storage and back-up to rapid data analysis and access, the firm said.
IntelliFlash HD can perform up to five million input/output operations per second, and has 10PB of capacity in a single rack, the equivalent of 10,000TB or €0.50 per gigabyte of storage.
The platform is powered by Tegile’s IntelliFlash OS, which also powers the company’s portfolio of all-flash and hybrid arrays, and Tegile touted several innovations in the platform to deliver such high performance.
These include an architecture that can scale up for sustained low-latency and performance at high scale, and provide data services such as snapshots, clones, thin provisioning, inline deduplication and compression.
Tegile chief executive Rohit Kshetrapal described IntelliFlash HD as a "game-changing flash platform" that will be of interest to businesses.
“Enterprise CIOs and business leaders have maintained that data resilience, economics and investment protection are the keys to accelerating the transformation of legacy storage infrastructure to all-flash,” he said.
"We have delivered a truly game-changing flash platform that enterprises can rely on to achieve tremendous business acceleration coupled with very compelling economics."
The unit is powered by a SanDisk InfiniFlash dense flash enclosure. Ravi Swaminathan, vice president and general manager for systems and software solutions at SanDisk, said that the Tegile tool will have a huge impact.
"We are excited about Tegile’s ability to address the un-met big data challenges faced by today’s data centre infrastructures at a compelling total cost of ownership," he said.
"With Tegile’s IntelliFlash HD, SanDisk and Tegile are accelerating the migration to the all-flash data centre."
The IntelliFlash HD flash storage platform will launch in the first of 2016.
