MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., – May 18, 2015 — Tintri Inc., a leading producer of smart storage for virtualization and cloud environments, and corporate sponsor of the OpenStack Foundation, today announced support for OpenStack environments on Tintri’s VMstore storage platform. Tintri will exhibit at the OpenStack Summit May 18-22 in Vancouver, British Columbia, and will show its Tintri VMstore storage working in OpenStack environments.
Tintri and OpenStack Support
Today Tintri announced support for OpenStack Juno release using the native OpenStack Cinder NFS driver on all Tintri storage systems running Tintri OS 3.2. Commercial support will begin with customers running OpenStack Juno with Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® OpenStack Platform 6, with other distributions to follow. Tintri had previously announced support for VMware Integrated OpenStack (VIO) which allows organizations to build OpenStack deployment services on top of their existing vSphere infrastructure.
“For those organizations that are looking to run OpenStack in their environments, Tintri now offers multiple support paths for using Tintri VMstore storage with OpenStack,” said Kieran Harty, co-founder and CTO of Tintri. “This continues our commitment to support Tintri’s high performance and per-VM management to provide a critical storage foundation for OpenStack implementations. Interest in OpenStack from our customers, especially cloud service providers and enterprises deploying private clouds, continues to grow. Tintri now offers organizations the choice of a cloud-based architecture based on OpenStack with the benefits of VM-level management and performance.”
Tintri will deliver a native Cinder driver which will expose Tintri VM-aware functionality to the OpenStack framework later in 2015. Tintri plans to certify its Cinder driver with OpenStack distributions and contribute it to the community within the upstream OpenStack Liberty code base.
