Tintri VMstore Review

With it, we no longer carve LUNs and hunt down latencies, but weight could be reduced for easier installation into the rack.


Valuable Features

Flash utilization - disk latencies are dropped from 15 - 400ms for our ERP software to 1ns!

Management interface - gives visualization into each VM, making it very easy to pinpoint a problem in the environment.

Automated support - we had a power supply fail and it automatically opened a support ticket, a new power supply arrived the next morning, and, upon replacing the power supply, the ticket automatically closed.

Improvements to My Organization

The end users have noticed a vast improvement in performance with our ERP solution. VDI performance is excellent too, helping us in getting the users to adopt VDI.

For IT - we no longer have to worry about carving LUNs and hunting down latencies. We don't have to worry about storage any more and have time to focus on other initiatives.

Room for Improvement

Reduce the weight of the box so it's not such a bear to install in the rack. (More of a joke because I can't think of any improvements that can be made for performance and to the management interface.)
