Quotes From Members Comparing NetApp All Flash FAS vs. Tintri VMstore

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
This solution makes everything a lot faster. The time to move data around, boot and migrate VMs is much faster.When we move to all-flash, our response times were reduced to microseconds.It has improved performance for our enterprise applications, data analytics, and VMs. These improvements are a result of all-flash, throughput, reliability, compression, etc.There are many reports accessing the applications. We receive them very quickly. We used to wait a long time for them. Now, you just need to wait a moment.If you need a replacement part, they will provide it.My favorite part is all-flash solid drives. All of my applications are running on an all-flash array. Before, we used to get too many severity tickets on performance, but as soon as we migrated everything to an all-flash array, our critical applications are at top performance.NetApp AFF is based on Unix, which makes it secure.The file-based protocol supports NFS and CIFS.

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.Its VM-aware features have been excellent to use and integrate with XenServer as well.

Cons
I need faster Fibre Channel over Ethernet. They top out at 10GBs today and I would like that to go to 40 or 100.One of the features that I am looking for, which is already in the works, is to be able to take my code and automatically move it to the cloud.We would like to have more behavioral reporting.To be more competitive in the industry, they can develop deduplication, compression, and smarter features in the same array instead of all-flash.There are some bugs with the solution which need to be fixed.Technical support is a little lackluster. Some of the issues that we've had were opening up tickets. They seem to be routed in the wrong direction or it takes one or two days to get a call back for simple tasks.Going forward, I would like improvement in the response latencies, capacity size, cache, and controller size.On the roadmap, NetApp is improving the solution's storage efficiency, compression algorithms to achieve more space savings, and the management interfaces. We are looking forward to these feature additions in the next release.

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.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.Active/active cluster between two Tintris on Hyper-V cluster.Speed of our VDI machines. 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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Our TCO has increased by 15 to 18 percent.Using NetApp, our total cost of ownership decreased by 17%.Our TCO decreased significantly because we were paying maintenance on nine different arrays throughout the country. We've condensed those down to three arrays, and our maintenance fees from the IBM product dropped by over a half million dollars a year, saving us $500,000 USD.The total cost, the pricing of it, has gone up quite a bit.Disk level encryption is already in the solution, but it is very costly. Its pricing should come down.From an application standpoint, we have seen a lot of return investment on the speeds and responsiveness of the actual storage.Our total cost of ownership (TCO) has decreased by 40 percent.I am able to store two times more data than what I'm purchasing, which affects the way funds are being utilized.

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.The licensing model is relatively simple. For things like replication, however, the licensing needs to be looked at.Prices are not cheap, but it runs.​I think it is a very good solution. You get a good bang for buck.​
