Most Helpful Review
It's fast enough that there's no significant latency in our applications; and it's easy to add another target
The benefits are better up-time, better response time.
It provides multi-protocol, which is what gives the edge when it comes to big lineage PC workloads.
I would have to say performance at this point, because the application it is based on is so diverse.
The management of it is very simple. that is the most valuable feature.
I like the performance aspect of EF Series. It basically provides everything that we are looking for as a solution, very low latency and very high performance.
One of the most valuable features is the overall performance it provides. You're able to throw a pile of IOPS at it and it will handle that without much issue.
We use it for our VDI environment, and have not had any complaints with it.
The speed is the most valuable feature.
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.
It needs a better management tool.
They could improve overall scalability through performance. Denser capacity, which is doable, it is what the competition is doing.
Better support technicians for CAPP.
The management interface, while very reliable, it seems a little old now and could maybe use a little modernization.
I’d like to see bigger, faster, better hardware, of course. I think that is the way the hardware is trending anyway; bigger, faster CPU, better software, fewer bugs, all that stuff. T
A little more manageability, a simpler management interface. It's not necessarily that it's way overly complex. It's just that it's not as easy as the FAS series.
I would like to see higher-capacity drives, as they come out; I have heard that 15 TB are out on a different NetApp series. Getting those on the EFs would be nice.
I would like to shrink it more, if we can. The smaller, the better.
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
he price point that we're getting is very competitive in the market. Since we are buying in such a large quantity, they gave us a huge discount.
The price point for EF is considerably lower than the alternatives.
It's a way to get relatively low-cost, very high-performance, low-latency block storage as a point solution.
Cheaper pricing is always good. NetApp has been doing everything the right way. They've been figuring out things really well, going in the right direction.
It's a lot cheaper than what the other vendors have for the same type of environment. It saves us money.
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.
