Tintri VMstore Review
We were able to increase productivity by moving away from LUNs and simplifying management of our backend storage.

Valuable Features

  • Dedupe
  • VAAI
  • The deep dive analysis of performance for each VM

Improvements to My Organization

We were able to increase productivity of our small team by moving away from LUNs and simplifying management of our backend storage.

Room for Improvement

Integration of all the interfaces:

  • For each Tintri
  • For the global centre management
  • Analytics

The interfaces are all great, but if all the functionality were built into one global centre, this would make the interface a single pane.

Use of Solution

We have been using this solution for nearly two years

Deployment Issues

There were no issues with deployment.

Stability Issues

There were no issues with stability.

Scalability Issues

Scaling requires the purchase of a new VMstore.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

Customer service is excellent. Any time we needed questions answered or help, our service team was quick to respond and they were very knowledgeable.

Technical Support:

Technical support is excellent. We performed an upgrade which caused an alert to be sent to our team. By the time we finished reading the alert, someone from Tintri was already calling us to explain the issue. In this specific case, it was an erroneous alert due to filling a temp folder during the upgrade process.

Previous Solutions

We were using a hyper-converged solution that wasn't scaling with our limited budget and space.

Initial Setup

The setup was straightforward and quick to deploy. It took under an hour from racking to being available for use.

Implementation Team

We deployed the solution in-house.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Scope your needs properly and buy the right model. Leverage your pre-sales team for help.

Other Solutions Considered

We evaluated Nimble and Nutanix.
