Quotes From Members Comparing HPE 3PAR Flash Storage vs Tintri VMstore
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
“Ease of setup”

“InfoSight analytics has been very valuable with determining upgrade requirements, bottlenecks, etc.”

“The latest update to the site now allows Per-VM monitoring within the Virtual Infrastructure now too”

“Performance Integration with Commvault”

“Support – World Class”

“The Web GUI interface is easy to use and self-explanatory. From the Web GUI you can register the array plugin to vCenter and from within the VMWare Client and the Web Client you have array integration to allow you to Clone Snapshots and present the clone to the ESXi hosts in a couple of mouse clicks. This feature allows VM power users with the appropriate permissions (set in vCenter) to Clone, Snapshot, Expand, delete and even change the Nimble Protection (Snapshot) schedule without needing array logon credentials or needing to go onto the array Web GUI.”

“Nimble permits us to upgrade transparently WITHOUT service interruption not only improves perceptions of IT, but it also changes what is normally a multi-hour process into a 30 minute process… saving time and money.”

“Better VMware integration then EMC does”

“Fibre Channel support”

  • Creating vVols and assigning them to the hosts is streamlined and easy.
  • The ability to delegate and control every aspect of the storage array has enables you to split the workload safely.
  • The thin and deduplication technologies are quite effective.
  • The replicate, peer persistence, port persistence, and the recovery managers work really well.

"We also find the detail per-vm reporting at the ability to see reports from the hypervisor straight back to the storage useful."

"Speed - the hybrid flash has low latency even at high bandwidth."

"The most valuable features are VM awareness and QoS policies. While VAAI and VASA set the stage for arrays to be intelligent from a virtualization perspective, Tintri has taken it a step beyond. You can control resources on a per VM basis to ensure that contention in resources does not hamper performance."

"The ease and use and the great performance are why we went with our 2nd Tintri VMstore. Tintri arrays are cheaper then other vendors while still providing an excellent level of performance."

"If Tintri says we can host 3000 VMs in our storage, I know we can host 3000 VMs there. Believe the results."

"Fast deployment for virtual machines."

"The management dashboards keep improving and allow for quick and easy tracing of issues."

"Performance, cost, and ease of storage management."

"Simplicity of installation and management, high IOPS, management per VM, QoS, power and space saving."

"The dashboard makes things so easy to understand that you have a full grasp on what your VMs are doing and where the bottlenecks are."

"It has easy setup, easy administration, and no LUNs! Performance for the price is amazing. It has QoS per VM and great overall performance tracking."

Cons
“Web GUI should be HTML5.”

“Use smaller form factor disk to provide more spindles.”

“I’d like to see in-line deduplication extended to Nimble non-flash (called “Hybrid”) arrays, even if it’s only the C500 and higher controllers that support it.”

“The amount of firmware updates released seem excessive.”

“I would like to see integration with OneView, at least for reporting or some sort of monitoring. Basic stuff like that would be nice.”

“I would like to see SSL Certification.”

“They keep talking about doing one-to-many replication. This is what we'd like to see, just to help with data replication.”

“I really would like to see synchronous replication. This is something that when we have multiple arrays in our environment and being able to do something like a zero RPO.”

“The management console could use some work. All the functionality is there, of course, but it can be hard to find some features or do certain tasks.”

“Upgrades on them are a bit tricky. For us to do a head swap on one is a full outer joiner storage frame, which is obviously not that easy to do in a production environment.”

“I'd like to see just a little bit more virtualization so that as I work on the front end, I can make any necessary disc switches. I'd also like to see expanded correspondence systems.”

“It should be hardware independent”

“...fairly expensive...”

“Need to have pre-defined setups for your clients so that you know that the configuration at the LS is correct.”

"On the physical side, I would suggest adding a light to each of the controllers that would indicate which is the active and with is the passive."

"I would love to see improvements in their replication engine. Their current replication is really just enough to "check the box" that they do replication. We'll probably implement Actifio, Zerto or EMC RecoverPoint for VMs for more critical data replication."

"I would like to see better integration of the Tintri features directly into vSphere. Some of this is an extensibility issue in vSphere."

"I think with the world soon becoming only SSD, possibly NVMe, and 3D Xpoint. It would make sense for Tintri to drop the hybrid array down the line. The storage market is becoming cluttered."

"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."

"Backup integration with Veeam. I would really like to see a way to leverage storage side snapshots for this."

"The Tintri OS and GlobalCenter software do a great job of showing you troubled VMs, however it still could be a bit more helpful in diagnosing the issues."

"iSCSI could be a nice add-on. Dedupe is a nice to have! At this moment, compression does a very good job, but I'm sure dedupe could be the next big thing for VMStore."

"It needs a Hyper-V toolset and OpenStack Horizon support. Most of the features are in line with the competition, but they could provide automation to move VMs between hypervisors."

"The Hyper-V configuration is not as easy as VMware."
