Tintri VMstore Review

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

Valuable Features

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

Improvements to 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.

Room for Improvement

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

Use of Solution

We've used it for one year.

Deployment Issues

We've encountered no issues with deployment.

Stability Issues

It's been stable for us.

Scalability Issues

We've been able to scale it without issue.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

The customer service is good.

Technical Support:

The level of technical support is excellent.

Previous Solutions

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.

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.

Implementation Team

The implementation was done in-house.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Price is reasonable considering performance and time saved in managing.
