Tegile Systems, a provider of flash-driven storage arrays for databases, virtualized server and virtual desktop environments, has announced an integration with Cisco UCS Director to orchestrate and automate an end-to-end IT converged infrastructure management process.
Tegile Systems’ IntelliStack integration with Cisco UCS Director would improve consistency efficiency and speed. Through the integration, enterprises are able to deploy the latest in flash storage technology from Tegile supported with the Cisco UCS Director interface that manages infrastructure components including compute, network, virtualization and storage as well as public clouds such as Amazon (AWS Cloud) and Microsoft Azure.
“Tegile and Cisco already have a long-standing partnership, but by further integrating our technology we’re helping enterprises optimize their entire infrastructure management process with the latest innovation in flash storage at its core,” said Rob Commins, Vice President of Marketing at Tegile Systems. “Extending our partnership with Cisco provides exceptional flexibility and power for our rapidly expanding enterprise customer base to increase their efficiency and leverage public cloud providers.”
By combining Tegile’s IntelliStack with Cisco UCS Director, enterprises would be able to replace manual provisioning and de-provisioning of private and public cloud data center resources with automated workflows, ultimately reducing delivery time from days to weeks. Tegile’s data reduction capabilities would also lower capital expenses by enabling real-time monitoring, dynamic load balancing and optimum resource usage. As a result, enterprises would better manage a breadth of flash-based workloads and easily scale applications to support the success of their organizations.
The integration is a multi-hypervisor solution with support for VMware ESX, Microsoft Hyper-V and Red Hat KVM hypervisors and public clouds such as Amazon (AWS Cloud) and Microsoft Azure. IntelliStack with Cisco UCS Director’s task library allows orchestration, workflow management, and single-touch deployment of virtual machines, hosts, and virtual networks. In addition, a broad OS guest support facilitates cloning of Windows and Linux virtual machines, and monitors host and virtual machine memory and resource use.
The Cisco UCS Director integration is available for free via download and generally available to all of Tegile Systems’ customers. Learn more here.
