New Patent Pending Technologies Let Users Visualize Contention, Recover Snapshots From Any Point in Time and Manage Both Application Recovery and Storage Policies at Scale
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., – April 9, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Tintri Inc., a leading producer of smart storage for virtualization and cloud environments, today announced three product updates that reset industry conventions for QoS and address long-standing performance and policy pains of enterprise data centers and service providers.
To further discuss the news, Kieran Harty, co-founder and CTO of Tintri, will host a webinar on Tuesday, April 14 at 7 a.m., 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. PT. More details can be found below in the “Additional Resources” section.
The new capabilities include:
“QoS?has?attracted?a?lot?of?interest?in?recent?years?with?many?industry?analysts?calling?it?a?‘must?have’?feature,” said Ken Klein, Chairman and CEO of Tintri. “Many?vendors?talk?about?using?QoS?to?deliver?performance?SLAs?and?deal?with?’noisy?neighbors.’ Some?even?talk?about?fine?grain?QoS?control at the volume or LUN?level.?Considering?a?volume or LUN?can contain?dozens or hundreds of VMs?running applications with?different?service?requirements, assigning the same QoS setting to all VMs offers very little value.?By?setting?performance?guarantees?at?the VM-level,?Tintri?gives?a?whole?new?meaning?to?QoS.”
While Enterprise customers can apply the new Tintri capabilities for VM-level performance isolation, Service providers can more easily offer differentiated tiers of storage service and manage 100,000 VMs across multiple data centers.
“As a cloud service provider, we need to provide different tiers of storage to our customers based on their performance requirements and budget,” said Dan Timko, CTO and Co-Founder at Cirrity. “Before, the easiest way to do this was to have three separate storage platforms with different characteristics, which was very inefficient. With Tintri, we can now apply per-VM QoS policies that allow us to mix workloads from different customers with different service levels on the same storage without any ongoing management headaches. And with Tintri Global Center 2.0, we can manage over 100,000 virtual machines from multiple tenants all from a single pane of glass.”
“Administrators need to be able to perform storage operations—QoS, snapshots, clones, replication, etc., and see storage metrics such as IOPS, latency, throughput, flash hit ratios and more—at a VM level,” said Eric Burgener, Research Director, Storage at IDC. “Starting with VM-level data management in the first product they shipped in 2011, Tintri has continued to add more VM-level capabilities that now include VM-level QoS. IDC sees VM-level management as the wave of the future, not only to improve the efficiency of storage operations but also to make storage management more intuitive for the IT generalists that are increasingly managing storage in virtual environments.”
The new products not only deliver VM-level performance guarantee and storage policies at scale, they also enable application development teams to accelerate development and test cycles with SyncVM.
“Our application teams needed to accelerate their development and test cycles,” said Ross Alaspa, Product Engineer at AMD. “Every day counts. They never thought they would get the help they needed from their storage team. With SyncVM, updates that previously took days or weeks can now happen in minutes. The teams can travel backward and forward through a VM’s complete snapshot history for nearly instant point-in-time recovery, all without losing snapshots or VM history.”
Tintri OS 3.2 will be available in May to all Tintri VMstore owners with a valid Tintri support contract.
Tintri SyncVM will be available for purchase in May as separately licensed software for Tintri VMstore.
Tintri Global Center 2.0 will be available in May for all current Tintri Global Center owners with a valid support contract, and as separately licensed software for all Tintri VMstore owners.
