Easy to use, good automation, and a fast performance
Pros and Cons
  • "We have been able to scale up to ten VM storages and 500 VMs through a single pane of glass."
  • "Detailed reporting is missing in the current version. We would like to see this feature added in a new release."

What is our primary use case?

We implemented Tintri VMstore on our environment for storage management, and we deployed all our VMs on Tintri. 

We were looking for a solution that was easy to manage and easy to implement. 

In the past, we faced a performance bottleneck with our storage, and we have had instances when NFS mount points got disconnected by themselves. 

Tintri has provided us with stability and faster speed. We were also looking for a solution that is compatible with our existing Hypervisor environment, and Tintri has fulfilled that requirement.

How has it helped my organization?

Tintri VMstore has superior performance. It provides us with up to 30% faster performance than our old storage solutions. 

The T7000 series of VMstore has the capability to forecast resource requirements and capacity. Tintri VMStore has a unique filesystem that can manage performance and help us to oversee workloads. 

We have been able to scale up to ten VM storages and 500 VMs through a single pane of glass. That is a big plus for using the Tintri solution. Tintri is easy to automate using Powershell and Rest API.

What is most valuable?

We have found better performance, predictive analysis, and ease of use, and it supports site-to-site replication. 

Tintri VMstore provides a single pane of glass to manage all your VMs and hypervisors, it is very easy to scale. 

Automation comes naturally in Tintri using simple PowerShell and REST API. 

The faster performance of Tintri has reduced latency across our network, storage, and VMs. We now have more visibility across our VMs which has enhanced our user experience and helped accelerate deployments.

What needs improvement?

Tintri has a feature called Tintri Global Center, which helps to monitor and control our infrastructure with a single click. This works fine if you want to look at existing data, however, if you want to monitor dynamically with a granularity of seconds that it requires a connection back to Tintri central, which is an extra step and not so convenient to use. Also, we have noticed that while Tintri has improved our infrastructure performance by 30%, the performance drops significantly if we exceed SSD capacity.

Following additional features, we would like to see in the new release:

1. The fixing of the performance issue when we exceed SSD capacity.

2. Documentation support in major languages besides English (as we have teams spread out across multiple countries).

3. Having a one-click GUI to create snapshots of the storage.

4. Detailed reporting is missing in the current version. We would like to see this feature added in a new release.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using Tintri VMstore for more than one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Tintri VMstore provided us up to 99.99% scalability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have been easily able to scale from 100 to 500+ VMs using Tintri VMstore; we have had no challenges scaling up while using Tintri VMspot

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

We were using HPE Nimble Storage earlier, and we were looking for a better-performing solution with a faster processing speed and a single pane of glass management.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

As it is a flash array storage, it is much more expensive than a traditional disk-based storage system.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate the following options before finally settling on Tintri VMstore:

1. PureStorage

2. Dell PowerStore

3. Dell Unity

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Great data encryption, adds an additional layer of security, and offers good performance
Pros and Cons
  • "The data encryption feature adds a valuable security enhancement with no impact on performance."
  • "We need more options to integrate with cloud storage options other than the current AWS and IBM that it currently supports."

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use Tintri VMstore solution for our VM database storage needs. Previously we used IBM flash storage services. However, it had significant drawbacks. So, we switched to Tintri VMstore solution, and it met all our storage needs and more. 

The extra layer of security it provides is also very valuable for our organization. We use 24 VMs in our environment currently, and our customer database contains sensitive information. With the help of Tintri VMstore solution, we are also on the right path for future expansions.

How has it helped my organization?

Tintri VMstore solution brought a very positive change and impact on our day-to-day operations, and we have encountered little to no hiccups until now. 

As explained earlier, with all our physical and virtual infrastructure, the Tintri VMstore solution has been very helpful in managing our needs and provides easy integrations and extra layers of security. 

Overall, using Tintri VMstore solution compared to the previously used alternatives and have given us far better output and services, and support over the period of its use.

What is most valuable?

The data encryption feature adds a valuable security enhancement with no impact on performance. The SecureVM feature of Tintri VMstore encrypts all data going through it with zero impact on performance or output and can be managed using the VMStore dashboard. 

This adds an additional layer of security to the organization's infrastructure and is a valuable additional feature. 

Since all the data we are processing is sensitive and a compromise cannot be afforded, using Tintri VMstore has benefited the organization thus far.

What needs improvement?

We need more options to integrate with cloud storage options other than the current AWS and IBM that it currently supports. We also use Microsoft Azure services for a portion of our database and would like to see the seamless integration of that platform with Tintri VMstore as well. 

Additionally, support ticket times could be reduced, and the method could be made a little more robust to save time and effort. 

The addition and improvement of these features can make Tintri VMstore stand out as the leading solution for VM storage and Database management.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used the solution for two years.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Private Cloud
Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We are also a business partner with Tintri and resell their solutions. We also use a Tintri solution at our premises.
