Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
This solution makes it easy to manage storage, provision new workloads, and scale-up.
The All-Flash models are pretty fast for the vast majority of our remote workloads.
We use replication for disaster recovery (DR), making our DR process much easier.
It has reduced complexity.
We have resolved IT challenges with this solution. It sped up our environment. We went from spinning disk to all-flash, which reduced our footprint.
It has good performance.
We can get almost real-time response times.
The most valuable thing for our use case is the flexibility to have multiple-protocol support.
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.
This solution would be improved with the addition of flexible raid volumes.
We would like to see the concept of Storage Groups brought back to this product line.
I haven't seen the roadmap for this solution.
It is missing some features, like deduplication.
Because we can do synchronous replication between the two sites, this made the setup challenging for this piece. They did not know how to set this up initially. We ended up having to do bidirectional synchronous replication.
I would like them to continue to build on the solution and expand on the functionality, like replication.
We'd like to see a cheaper version of an all-flash array in that footprint.
I would like to have secure mobile connectivity going forward. This would help me be more proactive.
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
Our CAPEX was close to $42,000 and operating costs are below $1000.
Our costs are roughly $200,000 a year.
The solution is extremely functional for the price that we pay for it. It is worth the investment.
We purchased a five-year warranty.
Compression is making a difference towards the amount of hardware that we need to purchase.
The return on the investment was simply speeding up our entire vSphere stack, which allowed our developers and engineers to get their workloads done faster and simpler. We were experiencing VM snapshot times of 45 minutes to two or three hours, and it shrunk it down to under five minutes.
It scales, but then you have to buy additional stuff.
With the large Unity that we bought, it has saved us about one and a half rack space. That's our return on investment on our flash array. We also need less Fibre Channel connectivity.
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.
