Tintri Unveils the Future of Smart Storage
Tintri for Microsoft Hyper-V offers customers choice and a dramatically simplified experience for building virtualised environments and private cloud
Designed from the ground up for virtualised environments, Tintri VMstore has powered more than 100,000 VMs running Microsoft SQL Server, Exchange, SharePoint, SAP and many other business critical databases, enterprise applications, VDI environments and private cloud deployments. Many of these organisations have already incorporated multi-hypervisor usage into their environment. Market research firm IDC’s recent survey1 of 202 companies worldwide with 1000 or more employees reports that 59 percent of the respondents were using more than one hypervisor.
With native Microsoft Server Message Block (SMB) 3.0 implementation purpose built for supporting Hyper-V and FlashFirst™ design, Tintri is optimised for running enterprise applications on Hyper-V with superior performance and reliability. Through native integration with Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) and Hyper-V Manager, Tintri offers VM-level visibility and control, which provides millions of Microsoft customers a dramatically simplified experience to virtualise business-critical Microsoft enterprise applications and desktops and accelerates private cloud deployments.
“Imagine running hundreds of mixed workloads– SQL Server, Exchange, SharePoint, VDI and development and test – concurrently on a single Tintri VMstore. Imagine simultaneously deploying Hyper-V and other hypervisors on a single VMstore and being able to move VMs between them as needed. Tintri is fundamentally changing how storage works with the industry’s first and only smart storage that sees, learns and adapts. Simplicity and transparency replace complexity and opacity, creating a world where application-
Tintri for Hyper-V enables customers to:
o Set-up in less than ten minutes. Administrators manage virtual machines and vDisks instead of LUNs and volumes—eliminating any complex configuration or ongoing tuning.
o Seamlessly scale virtualised environments from tens of VMs to thousands of VMs without additional storage provisioning.
o Instantly identify performance hot spots at the hypervisor, network and storage levels with comprehensive end-to-end performance and bottleneck visualisation at each layer.
o Protect individual VMs with customisable policies with space and performance efficient snapshots.
o Create hundreds of high performance, zero-space VM clones for speeding up VM provisioning for VDI and development and test workloads.
o Deploy affordable per-VM data protection and disaster recovery with WAN-efficient replication, reducing WAN bandwidth usage by as much as 95 percent with global deduplication and compression.
“A large number of companies are already deploying multiple hypervisors today. Tintri’s approach allows them to accommodate the specific needs of different applications by matching them with the most appropriate hypervisor. As more customers move to private and hybrid cloud, mixed hypervisor environments will become even more pervasive. Tintri’s multi-hypervisor support with VM-level data management capabilities provides an ideal platform for IT organisations and service providers to optimise on cost, performance and operational efficiency,”
“While many companies have taken advantage of the efficiency and savings that can be realised with server virtualisation technology, broad-based adoption throughout the data centre often stalls due to the challenges of the mismatch between traditional storage and VMs, “ said Chris Van Wesep, Director of Server & Tools Marketing, Microsoft. “With the unique VM-level monitoring and data management capabilities, Tintri for Hyper-V simplifies storage management significantly.”
