We performed a comparison between Tintri VMstore and VMware vSAN based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out what your peers are saying about Dell Technologies, Pure Storage, NetApp and others in All-Flash Storage Arrays.
"The data encryption feature adds a valuable security enhancement with no impact on performance."
"We have been able to scale up to ten VM storages and 500 VMs through a single pane of glass."
"The solution is stable."
"The flexibility is most valuable. Being able to manage things quickly if something goes wrong is also valuable. Very recently, we had one node that went down due to a power problem, but there was really no major impact on the systems running on top of it."
"We didn't only choose vSAN; we chose VMware because of SR-IOV, which is more on the hypervisor level and not on the vSAN storage. It's part of the whole system."
"The implementation is simple, it was very straightforward. It took us approximately three weeks because it was installed in four locations."
"The most valuable feature is the fast performance."
"The solution is simple to use compared to other solutions, such as Hyperflex, VxRail, and Nutanix"
"One of the most valuable features of this solution is that it is stable."
"It has a single pane of glass for management and operational control, which is the most valuable feature. The integrated storage is also valuable."
"We need more options to integrate with cloud storage options other than the current AWS and IBM that it currently supports."
"Detailed reporting is missing in the current version. We would like to see this feature added in a new release."
"This solution could be improved by having more than one controller for the environment. VMware depends on one controller for the whole environment, whereas Nutanix has one controller for each node. Because there is only one controller with VMware, if there was any drop, then the whole environment would stop working. In Nutanix, I have five nodes—there is one controller for each node and it depends on a virtual controller—so if the controller of any node is down, the whole environment will still work."
"While I like the replication and compression features, there is a problem with them running too slowly."
"VMware vSAN could improve by having better integration with other vendors and the storage is limited, I prefer it to the traditional storage."
"Lacks an integrated backup solution."
"It could have some automation. We haven't involved ourselves in a lot of automation around the vSAN environment capabilities. We're still running it using a very traditional setup. So, there could be some plugins to automate it using third-party environments, such as Jenkins."
"The solution could maybe improve failure protection."
"Integration could be better."
"It would be ideal if the solution offered some intelligent monitoring."

Reviews from Real Users
Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by PeerSpot users currently using the VMware vSAN solution.
PeerSpot user Yves S., CEO, Cloud Evangelist at Comdivision Consulting GmbH, says, “vSAN gives us a lot of advantages when we need to expand resources. We have an overall larger host infrastructure, and we split that up for specific customer test and use cases. In that specific scenario, we can easily add more hosts or reduce the number of hosts in the environment.”
A reviewer who works in Infrastructure Security explains, “The ease of use is great. The initial setup and upgrade process was pretty straightforward. And, technical support is great.”
Laurent N., Director at Softlogic, comments, "The feature that I have found most valuable is that it is easy to deploy. It is easy to create and delete virtual servers. It is easy to create the load balancing and the clustering."
Tintri VMstore is ranked 24th in All-Flash Storage Arrays with 2 reviews while VMware vSAN is ranked 2nd in HCI with 80 reviews. Tintri VMstore is rated 8.6, while VMware vSAN is rated 8.2. The top reviewer of Tintri VMstore writes "Easy to use, good automation, and a fast performance". On the other hand, the top reviewer of VMware vSAN writes "Gives us a lot of advantages when we need to expand resources".
