Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
It is efficient and very simple for our administrators to use.
For the migration process from the older VMAX arrays to PowerMax, we VMotioned everything. It was easy.
The stability is great. It is five nines.
It has reduced our footprint in different physical locations.
The number one most valuable feature is reliability. I want to go home at the end of the day and come in the next day knowing it works, especially since we have storage offshore.
We were able to move away from a middleware solution for high availability, going right to snapshots and data replication on arrays.
We use ESRS for our call-home, and a lot of times, Dell EMC will respond to the issue before we even know it.
The response time, compared to XtremIO, is far better.
The most valuable aspect of the solution was how fast it worked on behalf of VDI desktops.
It’s very good at IOPS.
It is fast and reliable. There hasn’t been a single failure in three years of use.
The Deduplication feature in VDI environments. If Tintri says we can host 3000 VMs in our storage, I know we can host 3000 VMs there. Believe the results.
A very good support team that is available 24/7. They have real technical staff with strong knowledge.
Web GUI for maintenance and resource monitoring purposes is easy to use.
Upgrades are super easy and can be done during business hours without interruptions in production.
Its speed has been absolutely fantastic.
I would like NVMe to be end-to-end in the next release. Right now, it is not end-to-end.
The initial setup was complex, and we had experienced people working on it.
The initial setup was complex, as it is a complex system and you have to learn a lot.
Setting up PowerMax with VMAX is always complex.
I would like to see the rack change. They have defaulted to the standard rack, so our fiber cables are crowded when we shut our back door.
We have issues that we don't know about, which Dell EMC fixes.
I would also like to see a real-time, graphical view of metrics. I don't know how far back in time we can look, but if we could see the performance from two months or three months back, and how it is performing now, that would be helpful.
The initial setup was a little bit complicated.
Technical support is an area where we had several issues, and it was hard to get some support in a specific case we had. I'm not very satisfied with them.
I would like it to have the ability to store data other than virtual machines. At the moment, you can only connect VMs to it, and that’s a bit disappointing.
In sync and automated mirror between two Tintris is missing.
I would love more insight into each virtual machine statistic.
The Tintri Analytics site is excellent for long-term trending, but more data would be great.
The product could be improved by adding iSCSI support. We have had to rethink how we implement some of our services due to this.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The cost is expensive. While VMAX now has good pricing, PowerMax is a little expensive.
From a general capital investment, it's one of the higher price points in the market. It depends on the size and software features that you would include in a system. So, the cost varies dramatically.
The cost has room for improvement.
It scales enormously, but it's expensive to do so.
Our costs are on a yearly basis.
Our costs for the product are three million.
From reclaiming data center space which is so tightly constrained these days, it will pay for itself in a short amount of time, which is fantastic. Anything we can do to get more out of our current physical data center space helps us a ton, and PowerMax has helped enable that.
The area it needs to improve is the pricing. It could be better.
Make sure that you have all licenses in one go. Options afterwards can cost extra.
An "all-in-one" license model would be better at this price range.
Ensure the storage system "natively" supports the protocols that you wish to use (i.e., CIFS) without the need for the overhead of internal "conversion VMs" that run the protocols.
Tintri is reasonably priced for the solution you get. Advanced features do require extra to use.

|Dell EMC PowerMax, PowerMax|
Dell EMC PowerMax is the world’s fastest storage array. It delivers new levels of performance and efficiency with a future-proof architecture that features end-to-end non-volatile memory express (NVMe) and a built-in machine learning engine. PowerMax is built on the comprehensive functionality and proven resiliency of Dell EMC’s flagship storage platform. It is designed for six-nines of availability and offers data-at-rest encryption (D@RE), massive scalability, and best-in-class data protection with Symmetrix Remote Data Facility (SRDF), the gold standard in remote replication.
The Tintri All-Flash Array controls each application automatically, so you don’t have to. Tintri guarantees performance, crunches real-time analytics, and predicts future needs—all at the application level. And with the T1000 Array, remote offices and individual departments can experience Tintri too. Now you can rest easy.
Conventional storage doesn’t play nice with your applications. The Tintri Hybrid-Flash Array does. Tintri controls each of your applications automatically, so you can spend your time and money on the strategic projects that matter. And when 99% of IO is delivered from flash, you get all-flash performance at a not-so-flashy price point.
Tintri maximizes performance for your applications and the people who manage them. With all-flash storage and software for virtualized workloads, Tintri automatically manages each application, so you don’t have to. That means you’re free from decades-old storage constraints so you can spend your time on high-impact projects.
