Tintri VMstore Review

It's reduced disc latencies in our ERP system from 300-400ms to nanoseconds.


What is most valuable?

There's virtually no management required. There's also no disc latency with each VM having its own I/O lane.

How has it helped my organization?

It's reduced disc latencies in our ERP system from 300-400ms to nanoseconds. It's also freed up daily management requirements for old SAN management.

What needs improvement?

Replication between two VMs needs to be improved to real-time. The solution also needs to have a better licensing model.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've used it for one year.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We've encountered no issues with deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's been stable for us.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We've been able to scale it without issue.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

The customer service is good.

Technical Support:

The level of technical support is excellent.

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

We previously used Dell Equilogic. It was a continuous management headache with very high latency. Tintri is much easier to manage -- there's virtually none -- and the latency is only in the nanoseconds.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was easy. This tool took longer to mount in-rack than to have it ready to start moving VMs to it. It was a very easy configuration.

What about the implementation team?

The implementation was done in-house.

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

Price is reasonable considering performance and time saved in managing.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

  • Nimble
  • Pure Storage
  • Storage Craft
  • DataCore
  • EMC
  • SCALE

What other advice do I have?

Get it. You won’t be disappointed.
