Blog: How do you safely reduce 10Tb of data down to 1.5Tb?

Where traditional storage vendors have struggled to keep pace in this ever-evolving market, a new breed of innovators is leading the way in delivering hybrid storage arrays (which combines spinning disk and SSD).

After extensive testing and product comparison, combined with a wealth of industry recognition and awards, we added Tegile’s all flash and hybrid storage arrays to our portfolio in 2014.

The first half of 2015 has seen a number of our customers adopt Tegile arrays. We are delighted to report our customers are seeing some great results and we are now in the position to share some interesting visuals with you.

In-line deduplication AND compression

The graphics below come from two of our clients who have recently switched over to Tegile storage arrays. Tegile’s hybrid and all-flash arrays include in-line deduplication AND compression.

Why is dedupe and compression so important? The first graphic shows our customer with 10.27Tb of VDI data on their array. Tegile first compress this to 5.93Tb – already impressive – and then further reduces this to just 1.51Tb through deduplication.

Most importantly, this is done ‘in line’, meaning there is no post-process dedupe operation and most crucially no impact whatsoever on the performance of the array.

Tegile VDI reduction

It’s fairly well-known that VDI data traditionally responds well to compression and dedupe, but let’s look at non-VDI data too. The second graphic below shows that even across all virtualised data types, Tegile is still achieving an impressive >50% reduction.

What this means for you is that you don’t need to purchase as much capacity as you might think, with the attendant cost benefits AND the performance of flash.
