MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., – Feb. 2, 2015 — Tintri Inc., the leading producer of smart storage for virtualization and cloud environments, today announced support for VMware vSphere 6, the upcoming major release of VMware’s flagship virtualization platform. Tintri is a VMware partner in the VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes program and plans to introduce support for VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes. Tintri is also announcing the release of the Tintri Management Pack for VMware vRealize Operations™ (formerly VMware vCenter™ Operations Management Suite™) to enable customers to monitor Tintri VMstore systems at the VM level directly from vROps management console. Finally, Tintri is announcing support for VMware Integrated OpenStack, which allows customers to run OpenStack on top of their existing VMware infrastructure.
Tintri at VMware Partner Exchange
Tintri will demonstrate support for VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes and VMware vRealize Operations at VMware Partner Exchange in San Francisco on February 3-5. In addition, Rex Walters, VP of Technology at Tintri will present a breakout session, “Beyond LUNs and Volumes: Growing your Business in the New Storage World” (STO4551-SPO) on Wednesday, Feb. 4 at 12:45 p.m. PST.
Tintri and vSphere Virtual Volumes
Tintri currently provides its application-aware storage with VM level visibility and management for environments running VMware vSphere 5 and above using the NFS protocol. With this announcement, Tintri will extend that support to vSphere® 6 using NFS and to vSphere® Virtual Volumes, providing customers the choice to leverage both technologies concurrently on a VMstore.
“Tintri believes that storage must provide intelligent performance, services and analytics at the VM level. We have been shipping products with these capabilities for nearly four years and have been working with VMware as a partner to integrate with VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes,” said Kieran Harty, CTO and co-founder of Tintri. “With our support of VMware vSphere 6, Tintri will offer a scalable implementation of VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes supporting up to 1 million virtual volumes on a single system to provide unparalleled VM density.”
“VMware vSphere® Virtual Volumes continues VMware’s commitment to tighter integration with storage systems to complete our software defined data center vision. Tintri, with its purpose built storage solutions for virtualized environments and cloud deployments, has been a VMware supporter since its inception and we share hundreds of customers. Tintri has been a partner and supporter of the Virtual Volumes program and has demonstrated its products at the last two VMworlds. We look forward to continued collaboration with Tintri as we take VMware vSphere® 6 and VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes to market,” said Gaetan Castelein, senior director of Product Management, Storage and Availability, VMware.
Tintri and vRealize Operations
The Tintri Management Pack for vRealize Operations provides VM level storage statistics, trending and insight that make managing and troubleshooting storage in large virtualized environments and private cloud deployments a breeze.
“Tintri support for VMware vRealize™ Operations™ is a match made in heaven for us. VMware vRealize Operations gave our operations teams a powerful common management platform and Tintri storage gave us unique insight into storage performance by showing it at a virtualized workload level,” said Firoze?Bhorat,?Senior?Virtualization?Engineer at?Derivco. “This simplified management and accelerated decision making.”
Tintri and VMware Integrated OpenStack
Tintri support for VMware Integrated OpenStack will allow customers who wish to run an OpenStack environment on their existing VMware infrastructure to leverage both the enterprise stability and features of VMware vSphere as well as the storage insight and performance efficiencies of their Tintri storage. The ability to quickly deploy, clone and tear down VMs with Tintri helps organizations realize the promise of OpenStack to accelerate their cloud initiatives.
“For those organizations that are looking to run OpenStack in their VMware environments, VMware® Integrated OpenStack is an option that allows them to leverage the vSphere® ecosystem,” said Harty. “Tintri’s high performance and per-VM management provide a critical storage foundation for VIO implementations.”
