Tintri VMstore Review

Integration with vSphere and centralized control are very valuable features.

Valuable Features

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

Improvements to My Organization

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

Room for Improvement

Integration with Commvault for native storage snapshots

Use of Solution

1 month

Deployment Issues

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

Stability Issues

Not yet, and I don't expect.

Scalability Issues

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

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

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

Technical Support:

As explained above: wonderful.

Previous Solutions

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

Initial Setup

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

Implementation Team

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


Not my field

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

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

Other Solutions Considered

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