MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – July 15, 2014 — / — Tintri, Inc., the leading producer of smart storage for virtualization and cloud environments, today announced its customers have deployed 200,000 virtual machines (VMs) on Tintri storage systems. Comprised of more than 16 petabytes of user data, these VMs run large scale private cloud deployments, business critical databases, enterprise applications and VDI environments for desktops and mobile devices.

“Reaching this significant milestone less than a few years after we shipped our first system is a clear indication of the pent up demand for smart storage, which goes beyond what traditional storage is capable of delivering,” said Ken Klein, Chairman and CEO for Tintri. “Enterprises are looking for storage that can meet the growing demands of virtualized workloads and private cloud deployments. The large number of VMs we now support in production environments running some of the most demanding business applications shows customers’ confidence in our product, enterprise-class support and overall business operation.”

The near doubling of live VMs since the beginning of the year corresponds with consecutive triple digit quarterly growth year over year and acquisition of new accounts that are spending more than $1 million in single transactions on Tintri products and services. Many existing Tintri customers have significantly expanded their environments by adding additional Tintri VMstores, Tintri Global Center for scaling and Tintri ReplicateVM for replication.  Close to 70 percent of Tintri customers made repeat purchases averaging 2.5x of their initial order. Numerous customers are running thousands of VMs on Tintri VMstores.

While customers continue to run a wide range of virtualized enterprise applications and virtualized desktops on Tintri, private cloud deployments have become one of the fastest growing segments. With no more need to provision LUNs and volumes, Tintri VMstore systems provide  the agility required to make it easy for enterprises and cloud service providers to add VMs as they scale from hundreds to thousands of VMs with no additional configuration, all while protecting individual VMs with customizable policies and assured SLAs.

The accelerating adoption of Tintri smart storage is supported by a dramatic increase of Tintri-certified IT professionals in the end-user and partner communities. Multiple training classes designed for systems and field engineers as well as sales professionals have certified more than 1000 individuals in 31 countries, representing an increase of 354 percent compared to July 2013.
