The Tegile Zebi arrays support Fibre Channel, iSCSI and network-attached storage (NAS) protocols. An array can be optimized for backup operations with high network throughput and in-line dedupe and compression, or for virtualization with high IOPS. For caching, Zebi arrays use a combination of DRAM and SSDs.
Our judges gave the HA2800 high marks for innovation and value, with its base price of approximately $235,000. One judge called the system “One of the more complete hybrid unified storage products — full storage array functionality and excellent performance at a reasonable price.”
