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.Tintri VMstore is rock solid. We have not had a single issue with stability. It is also very low maintenance allowing us to concentrate on project work.Support from our vendor and Tintri are brilliant. They have always answered all of our questions promptly.

Cons
There are no pNFS with VMware VVOLs.There is no direct storage attachment available. Most configurations require additional switches for data access.There are no RDMA capabilities in CIFS (SMB) and NFS protocols.The graphical interface is still heavy and slow. Needs more improvement in this area.I have experienced slow responses several times, if the ticket has only been opened in portal.I would like it to be an IP as our network is mainly IP-based.FC and ATTO bridges are still needed for cross datacenter replication.Stability could be improved.

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
I understand the cost is less than many other storages of same/similar performance benchmark.If you go for Replication, Vault, and NAS, please ensure that the license has been ordered at the very beginning. However, licenses can been added or modified without rebooting the system at any time.ATTO bridges add to the total cost of the system.NetApp is getting too expensive.It is pretty expensive compared to other solutions. I would give it a seven or eight out of 10 in price (where 10 is expensive) compared to similar solutions.The entry point for potential customers, who are looking at coming onboard for flash systems, it may be a bit expensive. It would be good if the price comes down.Other vendors may come in at a cheaper price point, but you will pay in the end with management costs and downtime.Obviously depending on the price point, NetApp is obviously a little more expensive than your generic Dell SAN solution or whatever.

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.​
