Western Digital offers the IntelliFlash flash array storage option based on technology acquired with Tegile, now owned and supported by Western Digital since August 2017.I am a Tegile believer!The Tegile SANs we have are set up to replicate to each other and the second one is for a BC/DR scenario and is at a different site. They house all of our production VMs. Since they are natively able to communicate over 10GB ethernet and also have 100% read/writes to flash they are very fast and offer great performance improvements.,Fast writes to and retrieves from the disks. Fast ethernet communication and full support for Vmware. NFS storage means no LUN rebuilding or painful LUN migrations.,I would like to see every update to be able to be reached via either partial or full updates. In the past we had progressed to one level of software and then found we could not get to a later version from that level, though they did address that.,10,It has increased our productivity in our database users by about 40%,,Vonage,3,3,Delivering our virtual servers to us 24/7/365 Containing all the data we use daily Replicating to our BC/DR site,WE were able to convert from a 1GB backbone to a 10GB Backbone because this awesome equipment allows us to migrate with both interfaces at once,In the future we can expand the sizew of the storage, or expand to 40GB networking, or install at other locations to do Geo-location based VDI computing,10,Yes,Price Product Features Product Usability,I would not change how we approached the purchase, as we vetted 5 vendors and manufacturers.,Vendor implemented Implemented in-house,No,Change management was minimal,Actually the users never knew anything was happening.,10,No,10,Yes,When we setup our replication the techs got on with us and stayed with us throughout the process, explaining what was being done at every step, and teaching us all about how they do what they do.,Upgrading the firmware on each backplane is a breeze Performing failover from one backplane to another is simple and straightforward through the GUI Checking the health, size of data and compression savings are all very clear via the super intuitive Web GUI,If you had already upgraded to a certain version, they made one mistake- you couldnt upgrade from that particular version to the latest, to take advantage of the SRM plugin with VMWare. They are addressing that issue for us, but it has delayed our SRM project by months.,No,10

SMB business Tegile pricing and performance is particularly well suited. BC/DR scenarios are also enhanced as they are extremely good at upgrading each side and failing over for upgrades. I don't know any situations where these would not be appropriate.
