Tintri Private Cloud
By now the theme is clear, modern organizations must treat the VM or Vdisk as the unit of storage management. Nowhere is that case more clear than private cloud. Virtualization is at the heart of private cloud, and so it is a step backward to leverage conventional storage built for a physical world.
Tintri’s file system (our DNA) was architected specifically for virtualized and cloud environments—the only provider that lets you see and act in VMs. And that makes Tintri the only provider that can keep up with the rate of change in Private Cloud. Consider the benefit of seeing things differently:
Storage Expertise. It takes a long-time storage expert to configure LUNs and volumes, and to provision individual VMs to meet cloud requirements.
Cloud Expertise. Tintri’s VMstore lets your administrators work directly in Vdisks and VMs—they NEVER have to think about LUNs, volumes, datastores and RAID. That means the virtualization or cloud admin can manage their own storage footprint, and the storage expert can focus their valuable time on far broader and more impactful activities.
Dollars per Gigabyte. Storage providers are going to battle to the lowest dollars-per-gigabyte to earn your business.
Dollars per VM. We can win on dollars-per-gigabyte, but our experience with the cloud customers that adore us is that dollars-per-VM matters more. When you consider all the VMs you’ll be adding over the next years, that’s the real driver of cost. No other vendor can even compute that number (since they think in LUNs and volumes), let alone touch us on value.
Scaling Pain in the Ass. Your cloud environment is changing and growing all the time, and that can cause storage and administration costs to ‘rack up’.
Single Pane of Glass. With Tintri, scaling to support thousands of VMs is easy and cost-effective—just add more VMstores. With Tintri Global Center (licensed separately), you can manage up to 32 VMstores from a single pane of glass. That equates to 3.2 PB of capacity, 4.5 million IOPS and more than 100,000 VMs. Get unmatched VM density with ease of management to see private cloud in an entirely new way.
Stated simply, we want to be part of your cloud foundation by being completely invisible. In fact, we expect your admins to lose their passwords to even access Tintri… because they are completely focused on your cloud, not your storage. Now that’s challenging convention.
