It is fast and reliable. There hasn’t been a single failure in three years of use.

What is our primary use case?

In our production environment, we have 10 ESX hosts with two replicated Tintri T850 SAN.

How has it helped my organization?

It is fast and reliable. There hasn’t been a single failure in three years of use.  The VMs have worked fine, and the bandwidth to the Tintri SAN has never been an issue.

What is most valuable?

Ease of managing and installing: It’s just to enter an IP address and you’re good to go.  It’s very good at IOPS.  The firmware upgrade is easy.

What needs improvement?

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.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

Speed Up deployment significantly and the cloning feature is Impressive

What is our primary use case?

I use Tintri box for a VDI solution, hosting at least 1800 VDI stations there, deployment really easy, really good performance. No major issues.

Pros and Cons

  • "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."

    What other advice do I have?

    You can ask for a deployment test with Tintri. After you test it you will like it, it's deployment is really quick and simple. No other dashboard is needed because you can see the behavior of your storage and the IO performance at the VM level.

    We can now identify VMs, which require a lot of disk performance from a single console

    What other advice do I have?

    Make sure you have four 10GB ports available, as each controller has two ports. If they are both filled, it will flash the error LED on the front of the unit.

    The most valuable features are VM awareness and QoS policies.

    Pros and Cons

    • "You can control resources on a per VM basis to ensure that contention in resources does not hamper performance."
    • "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."

    What other advice do I have?

    Understand your workloads and their demands well. This means you need VM performance metrics for at least three to six months, ideally, from vRealize Operations. Setting up policies is crucial as it has direct implications.

    We purchased it and currently use it for our Hyper-V environment.
    Valuable Features: The overall speed/performance of the system is critically valuable for us and the analytical data is extremely helpful for minimizing troubleshooting time for any VMs experiencing issues. This product was purchased for our MS Hyper-V 2012 R2 environment and allowed us to build out a clustered configuration that we have never been able to have due to previously unreliable equipment. At the time we were having severe disk latency issues and realized that we needed an all Flash or Hybrid flash and SATA array. The unit we purchased is a Hybrid unit, although at first we were skeptical it would provide the same performance as an all Flash Array, yet it has far surpassed all expectations.

    The integration at the VM level provides a detailed understanding of the VMs storage relationship without having to run lots of extra tools and services.
    Tintri Storage a System Built for Virtualization Administrators. As a VM administrator and not a storage administrator the move to Tintri was a great change in storage strategy. The integration at the VM level provides a detailed understanding of the VMs storage relationship without having to run lots of extra tools and services and then having to extrapolate and correlate all the data to determine which VM is the bully and which VM is the victim. The ability to look at the Tintri Global center for a view of multiple VM stores or individual VM stores from the web interface or even just at the VM itself from the vSphere plugin means the all the information about a VM is quickly and readily available.…

    Improvements to My Organization

    No longer need to manage multiple LUNs and try to balance out storage allocation. Performance has been great with no issues seen on storage since moving from NetApp. We were constantly troubleshooting what was causing bottlenecks with NetApp with the VMStore they give you great insight to the network, storage, or host allowing you great insight of performance at the VM level.

    Improvements to My Organization:

    Faster deployment and more responsive VDI environment. What I meant is that by leveraging Tintri and their VAAI plugin we cut deployment and recompose times in Horizon View. We have increased responsiveness because the smart caching in VMStore allows us to achieve flash like performance for the VDI environment because mostly the same data is accessed.

    Review about Tintri VMstore
    IT Challenges: Migrating from one datacenter to another is never an easy challenge especially when downtime must be minimal. There are a few tools I have access to that could have been used to get the job done. These are VMware SRM, Veeam Backup & Replication, and Zerto Virtual Replication. First, let’s take a look at the old datacenter. There are two separate clusters. One is running vSphere 5.0 and the other is vSphere 5.5. Since I am building out a new datacenter and looking to use vSphere 6.0, using SRM was really out of the question. On the storage side, there are multiple NetApp FAS arrays. I could use Veeam, but I am looking for a very low RPO which can be a bit difficult to pull off as constant snapshots can impact application and storage performance. Zerto…

    You can restore a VM from an existing snapshot, and if you have Tintri OS 4, you can attach the snapshot as a attached disk to an existing VM.

    What other advice do I have?

    Tintri has the best solution in the storage world. Virtualization and storage is a good match and they are always adding new stuff with each new firmware release. I don't hesitate to recommend Tintri to my friends!

    Simple to instal and manage. High IOPS.

    How has it helped my organization?

    Our customer don't call anymore for slowness on their VM's disks. Our engineers have much more time for more valuable things instead of storage management. Time to market enviable. Support hyper-reactive.

    What is most valuable?

    Simplicity of installation and management, high IOPS, management per VM, QoS, power and space saving.

    What needs improvement?

    More cloud integration.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    Customer Service: It's far above average. Technical Support: We always spoke with a senior engineer.

    Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

    We switched for low IOPS and cost of management.

    What about the implementation team?

    Although I no longer have to manage our storage, I'd like to be able to add more storage capacity without buying additional, separate arrays.

    Pros and Cons

    The overall speed of the system is the main feature that's valuable for us.

    Pros and Cons

    • "We also find the detail per-vm reporting at the ability to see reports from the hypervisor straight back to the storage useful."
    • "On the software side, I suggest adding integration with backups software like CommVault Simpana or Veeam where these products can integrate with the array and trigger things like snapshots for backup, etc."

    What other advice do I have?

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable features for us are the reliability and it's ease of use.

    How has it helped my organization?

    It's the most stable storage unit since the much more expensive HP 3PAR unit was released.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    Our first unit – the T540 - was bought at the beginning of 2012.

    What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

    We encountered no issues with deployment.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    There were stability issues only when we exceeded the operational limitations. We found that the number of running VM’s advertised per device is not consistent with what we experience due to the workload each of our VM’s generates.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    As a SysAdmin, I really appreciate the built-in monitoring capabilities as well as the PowerShell and REST API toolkits.

    Pros and Cons

    • "I've worked on both EMC and NetApp SANs, and this is by far the easiest system to maintain"
    • "Their current replication is really just enough to "check the box" that they do replication. We'll probably implement Actifio, Zerto or EMC RecoverPoint for VMs for more critical data replication."

    What other advice do I have?

    With the drop in flash prices, there are a lot more options on the market than when we first started our research for this project. In particular, I'm currently very interested in hyper-converged solutions. However, if are looking for an easy, but high performing storage platform for VMware, then you can't go wrong with Tintri.

    The most important features to us are its low latency, the high performance, and the per-VM QoS.

    What other advice do I have?

    I think this is a perfect product if you need a VM-aware storage solution. As a service provider we love the possibility to look at the virtual environment from the storage perspective, to see which VMs are using IOPS/capacity and to analyze where the latency is produced (host/network/storage). With the new QOS features we can guarantee to meet customer demands and we don’t have to use different storage platforms for different performance alternatives. For example; if the customer wants spinning-SATA-RAID5 performance we can set a limit on the IOPS and if the customer wants Hybrid-SSD-spinning…

    For the original Tintri Does "IT" Better review, visit https://tactsol.com/tintri-does-it-better/ IT Challenges: Recently I had been trying to solve a problem with latency in a Microsoft 2012 R2 RDSH environment hosted on NetApp FAS storage and vSphere 5.5 Enterprise Plus. Storage was fast in terms of hard drive standards using 15k RPM SAS drives, and latency on the aggregate and volumes was relatively low. Although when connecting to RDSH any amount of latency is very noticeable. NetApp has two different types of Flash technology to make use of intelligent caching.

    For anyone looking at buying enterprise storage, take a good look at the market place, there are a lot of options out there. I did the same and found that Tintri was a clear leader in the space and would give me the performance and benefits I was looking for.

    Traditionally it is very hard to troubleshoot perceived storage performance issues of a single VM when it's on a shared LUN with other VMs. Tintri allows us to do so.

    Valuable Features:

    Compression and the Tintri UI in general. Very easy to see what VMs are consuming the most amount of resources and where the latency is (host, network, storage).

    Improvements to My Organization:

    Much less storage management than both of out other SANs. Traditionally it's very hard to troubleshoot perceived storage performance issues of a single VM when it's on a shared LUN with other VMs; with Tintri it's a snap.

    Room for Improvement:

    Not a fan of SyncVM being an addition license. Dedupe is only at the clone level; no overall dedupe process. 

    Use of Solution:

    Deployment Issues:

    Stability Issues:
