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. On a related note, the advent of VVol (which Tintri supports) will be interesting to watch. While VVol is gaining acceptance and can be seen adding similar capabilities to legacy arrays, Tintri does integrate and leverages VASA/VVol. The product offers a number of features apart from the standard set found on most arrays (snapshots, replication, etc.). This includes inline deduplication and compression, which are now almost standard. The single discerning feature in which the vendor has been an absolute pioneer is VM awareness and the ability to set QoS on a per-VM basis. While this is available in other products such as SolidFire, EMC SPBM (storage policy based management), Tintri is the pioneer. View full review »

The deduplication feature in VDI environments. If Tintri say's: "we can host 3000 VMs in our storage", I know, we can host 3000 VMs there. Believe the results. View full review »

The feature that I find most valuable is the VM level awareness that the VMstore gives you. This is great for finding problems where VMs are hogging all the performance. The VMstore is also very stable. I have not had a single issue since the purchase my company made. View full review »

* The web GUI for maintenance and resource monitoring purposes is easy to use. * If you have to reconfigure or check something, you will not be lost with too many unnecessary options. * Excellent 24/7 support with good reaction times. A lot of first time contacts were to a technical person, not log and route. View full review »
