Newark, Calif. — Tegile Systems, the leading provider of flash-driven storage arrays for databases, virtualized server and virtual desktop environments, today announced that Oklahoma Heart Hospital has chosen its T2800 All-Flash Array to provide the speed and performance necessary to support its large-scale VDI deployment.
Oklahoma Heart Hospital is the nation’s first all-digital hospital totally focused on heart care services. The physician-owned facility considers every facet of a heart patient’s care and hospital experience to ensure a patient-centered care experience that delivers better outcomes. By saving valuable time for patients by making information readily available to caregivers, Oklahoma Heart Hospital has achieved a ranking in the top 1 percent nationally for patient satisfaction.
To help support its state-of-the-art mandate, Oklahoma Heart Hospital looked to replace its traditional infrastructure and build a new tiered storage infrastructure with the best-performance flash-based solution available in support of its Citrix XenDesktop environment. After building a real-world test environment deployed in the middle of its data center, Oklahoma Heart Hospital evaluated the fastest, highest-performing offerings from several major storage vendors before choosing Tegile for its speed, flexibility, ease of management and enterprise-class capabilities.
“Specifically, what I was after was something that was very good for VDI and XenApp, that keeps latency down, that keeps network utilization down, with a good amount of storage and excellent amount of speed,” said David Stinson, Senior IT Specialist for Oklahoma Heart Hospital. “I almost couldn’t believe what I was seeing with Tegile. I couldn’t believe how well it performed. Everything about Tegile worked. It had everything we needed and it did it extremely well. The bottom line? Choosing Tegile was a ‘no brainer’ for me.”
Introduced more than two years ago, Tegile’s All-Flash Arrays deliver enterprise-grade performance without the potential for any service interruption or delay, making them an ideal solution for applications that require the highest performance and low latencies.
Tegile Intelligent Flash arrays deliver exceptional performance and economics for VDI deployments regardless of the choice of hypervisor and virtual desktop server solution. Tegile has worked closely with VMware, Citrix and Microsoft to develop and validate several Virtual Desktop reference architectures. Through extensive testing with various hypervisors and desktop servers, Tegile eliminates any interoperability and operational risk, enabling organizations to realize the promise of desktop virtualization.
"Oklahoma Heart Hospital went looking for the fastest, highest-performing storage available on the marketplace today and found that Tegile fit the bill after performing head-to-head, real-world testing," said Rob Commins, vice president of marketing at Tegile. "Running hundreds of virtual machines on a centralized infrastructure requires a storage architecture that delivers consistent and best end-user experience. We’re pleased that Oklahoma Heart Hospital found our Intelligent Flash Arrays to be the perfect platform to keep up with the performance demands of their virtual desktops without compromise."
