Tegile Systems is a manufacturer of flash storage arrays based in Newark, California. Both hybrid and all-flash storage arrays use technology called IntelliFlash. Tegile Systems was founded in 2010 by Rohit Kshetrapal, Rajesh Nair, Justin Cheen, and Alok Agrawal. In February 2012, Tegile came out of stealth mode when it announced a product line called Zebi. Tegile investors include August Capital, SanDisk, and Western Digital. In 2013, a $32 million investment included Meritech Capital Partners. In May, 2015, a round of $70 million was announced, with additional investors Capricorn Investment Group, Cross Creek Advisors and Pine River Capital Management. By the end of 2015, Tegile had an estimated 360 employees. Tegile developed what the company calls IntelliFlash Metadata Acceleration, which is a way to store metadata on high speed solid state disks, apart from the underlying data. Tegile hybrid and all-flash storage arrays use an implementation of the ZFS file system. Tegile made some changes to the way data is written to the file system, specifically how metadata is handled. IntelliFlash supports both block and file access, including iSCSI, Fibre Channel (FC), Network File System (NFS), and Server Message Block (SMB) protocols. Tegile provides a storage management tool. Tegile arrays support inline data deduplication and data compression.
