Tegile Systems is a company that has managed to make a name for themselves in a wide variety of different areas of the technology sector. Among its specializations is de-de-duplication in virtualized server and desktop environments. At the end of last week, the company announced that Billion Automobile has put Tegile’s Zebi Storage Array. This new array will service GMC’s fourth largest dealership in the United States. The array will work to serve databases, file services ADP data and a strong overall performance.
Tegile has jumped through quite a bit of hoops to earn the kind of contracts that Billion Automobile brings. In the fall of last year several of the company’s technological solutions were improved and certified as top of the line in their area. That certification most likely helped to make its offerings more attractive to companies like Billion Automobile. Billion Automobile is based in the Midwestern part of the United States with 16 locations in Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota. The company has 900 employees, with 100 working to deliver cars in the areas surrounding its dealerships and another 800 working at the actual dealerships.
Billion Automobile’s manager of client development and IT said that the reason the company went with Tegile is because the users of its current VDI options wanted an upgrade. “Sales people working in our lots were simply unable to do their job because performance was so slow on their client devices. It was directly impacting our ability to generate revenue. So the ability to improve performance for users was a key consideration. The company also wanted to address scalability in order to accommodate further aggressive growth when we move the datacenter to an offsite co-location facility.” Hubert added.
Hubert also said that Tegile’s Zebi Array was the only array he saw that fit the needs of Billion Automobile to such a great degree.
