Two years after its Zebi product launch, Tegile Systems, Inc., continues to suceed in the enterprise storage marketplace behind record-breaking sales of its line of Zebi storage arrays, which balance high performance, high capacity, features and price to make them a solution for a range of industries and applications.
Key customer wins and overall increased market penetration of Zebi arrays has led to a 350% increase in year-over-year revenue for the company, positioning Tegile as the top storage hardware company and taking the #5 spot on StorageNewsletter.com’s Top Fastest Growing Storage Companies in 2013.
Part of the year-to-year increase is attributed to higher average sale prices from increased adoption of the more advanced Tegile Zebi HA2400 and HA 2800 arrays, along with a significant number of users becoming repeat customers, ordering multiple units as they deploy hybrid storage to support additional workloads and/or deploy in different lines of business.
One issue that has held back buyers WAS the fact that Tegile was a relatively new startup. Now that Tegile has reached critical mass, I suspect this increased revenue trend will accelerate. With Nimble Storage going public there is more pressure on startups to gain a reputation for being solid. Congratulations to Tegile for the hardwork.
