Tintri VMstore Review
Good for VDI environments or if you need to provide high-end VMWare solutions.


How has it helped my organization?

When implementing our VDI environment we noticed that we were unable to push out the IOPS for the VDI's to achieve the performance we wanted to. With Tintri we are able to deliver good performing VDI desktops.

What is most valuable?

The fact that it is very easy to set up and delivers. It is a set and forget environment with a very good tooling to view performance and delivers the IOPS we need for our VDI environment.

What needs improvement?

Speed of our VDI machines. We have a very high log in and log out ratio and machines are being refreshed instantly so we have a constant boot storm on our storage. Tintri can easily put up the effort then run this smoothly.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Not until now.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Not until now. Because we don't have a full flash array but a hybrid we expected to not have a 100% flash hit ratio but to this day we never got below 100% hit ratio of Flash.

How is customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Perfect. Normally they are aware of an issue earlier than we are. And even if they don't support something they still put in the effort to help us

Technical Support:

Very high.

Which solutions did we use previously?

Yes, we used diferent kinds of storages but they were unable to deliver the IOPS we needed.

How was the initial setup?

Straightforward. As said, within 45 minutes from unboxing to production.

What about the implementation team?

Through a vendor team. Other than getting the Tintri out of the box it was very easy.

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

Speed of our VDI machines. We have a very high log in and log out ratio and machines are being refreshed instantly so we have a constant boot storm on our storage.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, we tried multiple storage vendors but at that time Tintri was our best option for what we needed to achieve. They also provided us with a demo model.

What other advice do I have?

I'd say if you are going for VDI environments or need to provide high end VMWare solutions make sure to try Tintri. If you tried it and used it you wont go back to anything else.
