What do you think of Tintri VMstore?

Valuable Features Dedupe VAAI The deep dive analysis of performance for each VM • Improvements to My Organization We were able to increase productivity of our small team by moving away from LUNs and simplifying management of our backend storage. • Room for Improvement Integration of all the interfaces: For each Tintri For the global centre management Analytics The interfaces are all great, but if all the functionality were built into one global centre, this would make the interface a single pane. • Use of Solution We have been using this solution for nearly two years • Deployment Issues There were no issues with deployment. • Stability Issues There were no issues with stability. • Scalability Issues Scaling requires the purchase of a new VMstore. ...

What is most valuable?

In a word, performance. It was primarily brought in to replace our EVA with something that was more capable from a performance perspective. We did not order solid state in our original configuration and we were looking for something which could grow with us, that could handle unpredictable VMware workloads better, and that didn't have the bottlenecks of a... more»

What needs improvement?

My 3PAR array is too old to support File Persona, and I would love to be able to do that, but that's something that we would need more powerful controllers. We've got the first generation, so at some point we will get it, but we've got to wait for a refresh cycle.

What is most valuable?

Backdating: This is Reduxio’s local every second backup technology. It is always-on and monitored 24/7, so it frees up a lot of time that I used to spend babysitting traditional backups. Value: For less money than my previous solution, I... more»

How has it helped my organization?

I never have to think about backups again. A few months after implementing Reduxio, I got a request to restore some data related to a former employee. I panicked when I found out my traditional backups were corrupted. Reduxio to the rescue!... more»

What needs improvement?

I would love an iPhone app to monitor my system from outside the firewall. I am also looking forward to the latest vCenter plugin with more granular reporting and management.

What is most valuable?

Support's good. The product seems reliable. The uptime is good. We haven't had any major failures or anything like that. It runs all of our SAN VMware infrastructure with no problems, really. The tools that it has, such as OnCommand Manager and so on, they're helpful if you're not a CLI type of person. I actually like the CLI as well. They're both pretty easy to... more»

What needs improvement?

The migration from 7-mode to cluster mode probably could be improved. The migration tool that they use, the copy free transition tool, it's new and it seemed like, while I was trying to get everything prepared, few people really knew much about it at NetApp. I had to make a lot of calls, send out a lot of emails to find out if the current version was going to do... more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are - 1. Ease of setup 2. Ease of Management with Web UI 3. InfoSight - analytics sight that collects data for all Nimble arrays deployed Infosight has been very valuable with determining upgrade requirements,... more»

How has it helped my organization?

These arrays perform very well and have allowed us to move many physical servers to virtual and run them from the Nimble arrays without any performance impact and there is actual performance improvement.

What needs improvement?

No areas require improvement at this time. The arrays run very well and updates are flawless when completing.

How has it helped my organization?

We used to be work with EMC solutions VNX and VMAX, which were very costly, hard to maintain, and no matter how many upgrades we did every year, it was always a bottleneck and the first place to look during an operational issue. After we... more»

What needs improvement?

The change resolved many coding issues that we had which required a long development process to resolve performance which become not critical - clearing time for new product features. Dramatic operational relief. Improved scale and budget... more»
