Banking & Finance:
In just a few years, technology has reshaped the financial services industry. Big data is giving organizations unprecedented insight into consumer behavior. Mobile payments and deposits have become the norm. Speed has become a crucial way for financial organizations to differentiate and gain a competitive advantage.
Western Digital Tegile Intelligent Flash Arrays give financial organizations like yours the IT performance to stand out. With all-flash and hybrid configurations, along with the ability to adjust the amount of flash storage in use, Western Digital Tegile arrays give organizations performance at the right price.
Banking and financial services organizations always seek new ways to speed transaction processing and enhance the customer experience. Both of these efforts spell an increasing need for high-speed data delivery. At the same time, such applications often operate using virtual servers or desktop clients, which aren’t always the best for performance.
Western Digital Tegile storage systems can greatly improve your data delivery speeds, and they’re perfect for virtual environments. Compared to legacy storage, virtual servers routinely run 5-10x faster on Western Digital Tegile storage systems, while virtual desktop users often report a 20x performance boost. Financial organizations using Western Digital Tegile can be confident in their ability to serve information and services quickly, wherever it’s needed.
Driving New Insights
Banks and financial service firms thrive on information. Unfortunately, extracting meaningful insight from database systems is often hindered by the time it takes data to traverse to and from the underlying storage.
What if you could dramatically improve data analysis? Western Digital Tegile storage offers lightning-fast access and swift handling of high transaction loads. It works well with Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, or even Microsoft SharePoint and Exchange. It also includes built-in encryption and ongoing data protection with snapshot functionality so your sensitive customer data remains safe and available 24×7.
Tradition is Important, Unless It Holds You Back…
There’s something to be said for tried-and-true technologies like disk storage, yet many organizations remain hampered by traditional storage that no longer serves their needs. This is especially true when it comes to supporting the I/O needs of virtual servers, emerging virtual desktop environments, and a slate of custom database applications.
Can your traditional storage keep up with your aggressive IT plans for new products and services? Is it causing system slowdowns or unnecessary wait times to access data and applications? Western Digital Tegile storage can make the kind of difference you have to see to believe. The combined speed and economics of Western Digital Tegile arrays give you the performance you need—without breaking the bank.

IT managers in education institutions must support a wide range of workloads—everything from virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI) to student registration databases and departmental research. With each application and end user competing for storage resources, it can be difficult to deliver consistent performance and maintain 24×7 availability without seeing your storage costs spiral out of control.
Western Digital Tegile Intelligent Flash Arrays™ enable you to transform your institution’s IT infrastructure, delivering lightning-fast performance and high levels of availability at a cost that’s one-third of traditional storage arrays.
Deliver a Rich User Experience
Western Digital Tegile all-flash and hybrid storage solutions are built to deliver high IOPS and low latency so you can accelerate applications and provide a more enriched, engaging experience to end users. In fact, we guarantee 5X better latency versus legacy storage arrays.
Cut Storage Costs
Get flash for the cost of disk and dramatically reduce operating costs. With Western Digital Tegile arrays, you get high-endurance flash at only $5 per gigabyte. Add inline compression and deduplication, which yield a data reduction ratio of 5:1, and you will see even greater savings.
Western Digital Tegile arrays natively support both block (SAN) and file-sharing (NAS) protocols, enabling you to leverage your existing infrastructure and run multiple workloads on a single array. Supported protocols include iSCSI, Fibre Channel, NFS, CIFS and SMB 3.0.
Use the management tool of your choice. In addition to its own easy-to-use web-based interface, Western Digital Tegile storage solutions can be managed using VMware’s vCenter web and desktop client, as well as any other interface through a REST API or SNMP.
Ensure Five Nines Availability
Western Digital Tegile arrays are fully redundant with no single point of failure. All media are dual-ported and accessible through a pair of active/active controllers. Users can also take instantaneous, space-efficient snapshots that can be replicated for disaster recovery. In fact, Western Digital Tegile confidently uarantees five nines (99.999%) availability against an unplanned outage.
The transformation of government IT is well underway. The 25-point Implementation Plan to Reform Federal IT, an executive order issued on April 27, 2011, acknowledges the responsibility of government to streamline services and to deliver them faster and at a lower cost. Western Digital Tegile Intelligent Flash Storage Arrays accelerate this transformation by seamlessly integrating multiple grades of storage media to deliver optimal performance and best economics for a wide range of enterprise applications.
Each array is powered by Western Digital Tegile’s IntelliFlash™ software architecture, giving you a single storage platform capable of supporting all flash, a mixture of flash and disk, or a mixture of high-performance flash and high-density flash. Dial up or down the amount of flash to match the performance and economic demands of your business applications.
Consolidate & Improve Efficiency
The Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative, issued on February 26, 2010, was developed to help government reduce overall data center energy footprint, reduce costs, increase security, and deliver more efficient computing platforms. Virtualization is a key enabler for this initiative, and Western Digital Tegile arrays help you realize the full potential of virtualization by delivering up to 10X the performance of traditional storage arrays at one-third the cost. Virtualize more applications and achieve better VM consolidation.
Reduce IT Costs
Slash storage acquisition and operational costs. Inline compression and global inline deduplication enables up to 90% storage reduction without the performance penalty of legacy storage arrays. Western Digital Tegile also uses high-density flash drives, which are significantly more energy-efficient than rotating media.
