We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
We are a 100% satisfied with the stability of the solution.
Stability-wise, this solution is fine.
The feature I find most valuable, is the deduplication, because the nature of the data that we are using in our current environment, has a lot of replicated data.
The performance of the All-Flash System is very good. There is more enhanced performance and data production in the solution, which I appreciate.
The initial setup was really straightforward. It was not complex. Deployment took one month, due to the data migration duration.
The FS900 uses custom built flash modules offering with better latency, and is also denser packed then most modular all-flash arrays using commodity SSDs.
An easy interface to set up, good build quality, and easily accessible parts for hot swapping combined with sub 500 us latency under heavy load.
The initial customer technical support was efficient and effective.
It is the most stable high-end solution in this area.
This is one of the most stable, high-end solutions in this area.
The high performance of flash storage is especially valuable to us.
This is one of the most reliable and dependable products on the market.
I am happy about the storage system and availability.
It's a state of the art solution in storage systems. High-availability and performance are the strongest aspects of these machines.
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 think the only thing the developers can look at, is that it is limited to 25 gigabytes currently. In the next release they might want to increase that.
This solution needs a management console where we are alerted to issues and can report them, or escalate them through email or another method.
I would like to see an improvement in the handling of large amounts of rights.
The solution is not easy to implement. It takes a lot of time to study the product and it's a little complicated in general.
The solution is not able to replicate data in one-to-many scenario.
When we performed some HW fault tests under heavy load, we found that some of the parts (fan units and PSUs) should only be removed from the airflow for a short time (less than a minute) when replacing.
Include an option to upload the support package to the IBM ECuRep when opening an IBM PMR.
The installation procedure it a bit difficult, because it is a high-end solution. With this type of product, the original company is interested in doing the setup for customers in the area, but because of sanctions we were not able to get support in our area. We faced many issued trying to learn to run this product.
The interface should be simplified and made easier to use.
In terms of new features, I would be interested to see deduplication added in their next release.
In the next version I would like to see additional features like artificial intelligence and an increase in the amount of data it can store.
In the next version I would like to see more intelligence.
The user experience is pretty bad in Hitachi. A lot of mandatory tasks take a long time to work through.
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
For a yearly license, it is about $100,000. There are no additional costs. The entire system is included.
This solution is cheaper than Dell EMC VMAX. When you are looking for a high-end solution, price matters, but availability and stability are more important than the price.
When you are looking for high-end solutions such as this, price is less important than stability and availability.
Pricing could be better, because the cost is very high.
I would like to see better pricing and more discounts.
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.

|IBM FlashSystem products are enterprise computer data storage systems that store data on flash memory chips. Unlike storage systems that use standard solid-state drives, IBM FlashSystem products incorporate custom hardware based on technology from the 2012 acquisition of Texas Memory Systems. This hardware provides performance, reliability, and efficiency benefits versus competitive offerings.|
