Tintri VMstore Review

Integration with vSphere and centralized control are very valuable features.


What is most valuable?

Rack space, compression, ease of use, IOPS and latency performances, vSphere integration, centralized control

How has it helped my organization?

Much more time available for other project, new items to put into our catalogue to offer our customers

What needs improvement?

Integration with Commvault for native storage snapshots

For how long have I used the solution?

1 month

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Not at all, we had their technicians more than once at our sites, to explain and to install the boxes, at no extra cost.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Not yet, and I don't expect.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Well, this is one of the most important points: 1 rack for almost 1 PB!

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Great. More than great. Reactive, no, proactive, via autosupport.

Technical Support:

As explained above: wonderful.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Yes, we had NetApp FAS: switched because of performance but, worst at all, support cost after the first 3 years. Unsusteinable and with no justification

How was the initial setup?

It's been smooth, asked for a couple of ports from our network guys, installed the needed SFP-- et voilà.

What about the implementation team?

It was directly contacted Tintri Europe, and we were assisted by Zycko Italia. Nice support

What was our ROI?

Not my field

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The cost could be the same as traditional vendors, but the product is totally superior.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, all traditional ones from NetApp, to EMC, to HP and Huawei.
