Mississauga, Ont.-based distributor Ingram Micro Canada has inked a deal with Tegile Systems, which solution providers will get access to the company’s flash storage options.

Tegile is a vendor of flash-driven storage arrays specific for databases and virtualized servers. The company also carries data management capabilities and can support a wide range of storage media under a single storage operating system.

According to Ingram Micro Canada, Tegile can offer solution providers an opportunity to enhance data centre solutions with flash storage arrays, data protection, and network attached storage (NAS) and storage area network (SAN) connectivity.

Dave Mason, Executive Director, Advanced Solutions, Ingram Micro Canada, said Tegile Systems represents an outstanding addition to the line card as well as a versatile option for solution providers, whether they’re operating with smaller workloads or mission-critical deployments.

“With Tegile, our channel partners can dial up or down the amount of flash storage they need and at the same time gain the high performance of flash with the economics of disk storage. It’s a powerful combination that will not only perform well for our mutual partners and their customers, but also complement Ingram Micro’s growing storage and data center offerings,” Mason added.

Tegile flash storage arrays also comes with built-in snapshot, remote-replication, near-instant recovery, onsite or offsite failover and VM-aware features.

With Tegile’s IntelliFlash operating system the storage arrays enable inline deduplication and compression of data.

Rob Commins, vice president of marketing for Tegile, said this all-in-one approach will allow mutual channel partners to reduce training costs, simplify sales and ensure end users are deploying the best-fit storage infrastructure for their unique requirements.
