We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
We mostly use it for backup, because we cannot measure anything, and we are afraid to use it for surveillance systems. We were planning to use it for mostly for surveillance systems.The most valuable features are that it is fast and reliable.We've seen great enhancements from the performance point of view. There's good availability, stability, and continuity, but the performance actually has increased by 60 or 70%.I like the deduplication and auto-tiering features.The solution's most valuable feature is its high performance.The solution's most valuable features are the inline data reduction and deduplication.The program is very stable.The most valuable features are: complete performance and ease of use.

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.

Cons
One thing that should be improved is the reporting and monitoring tools. It should use real time monitoring for storage, IOPS, latency, etc.The management should be improved and the GUI interface could be better and easier.The solution needs to be simplified. When you integrate your storage with other systems, could use a little bit of automation.The product could be improved by reducing the pricing and having better organization in their technical support team.The implementation isn't exactly complex, but the solution should have some enhancements in it to make the process more centralized.This solution is geared toward enterprise-level companies. Small and medium-sized businesses would find it extremely expensive.I would like to see more scalability.It is very expensive to scale. You have to buy an additional system to extend from one disc, for instance. It is scalable, but extremely expensive to do so.

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 initial purchase price was good but when you need to upgrade, it's a different story.There are costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.It is expensive if you need to increase scalability.

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.
