Delivers Industry’s Largest All-Flash Scale-out with Support for Up to 160,000 VMs
Organizations can grow from 17 TB to 10 PB for Less Than $1/GB and with 1 FTE IT Staff
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 17, 2016 – /BackupReview.info/ — Tintri Inc., a leading producer of VM-aware storage (VAS) for virtualization and cloud environments, today announced a new scale-out storage platform to enable enterprises and cloud service providers (CSPs) to build their own Amazon-like cloud infrastructure for diverse virtualized workloads. The new platform forms the foundation for the industry’s largest all-flash scale-out, with support for up to 160,000 VMs, 10 petabytes of capacity, and 6.4 million IOPS, for less than $1/GB.
Today’s announcement includes nine new Tintri VMstore T5000 all flash models with capacity expansion capabilities, VM Scale-out software, Tintri Analytics for predictive capacity and performance planning, and two new Tintri Cloud offerings. The simplicity of VAS enables organizations to scale from 17 TB to 10 PB with a common platform and less than one full time employee dedicated to storage management.
“Scale is a defining characteristic of cloud. While many companies aspire to build cloud-scale infrastructures with agility and automation for diverse virtualized workloads, they are held back by conventional storage architecture that’s simply not designed to support those requirements,” said Ken Klein, Tintri Chairman and CEO. “Customers have been forced to choose between limited scale-out that requires a large number of disks or expensive and inefficient scale-out, without the benefits of VM-level visibility, QoS and automation. With today’s announcement, enterprises and CSPs can scale far more effectively—building their own Amazon-like cloud infrastructure—with a VAS platform that allows for control, security, cost efficiency and simplicity.”
Scale-out Storage Platform: Built on a VAS foundation for modern storage scale-out with the following characteristics:
Tintri VMstore T5000 All-Flash With Expansion Capabilities: New configuration options for customers:
Tintri first introduced the Tintri VMstore T5000 all-flash series in August 2015. Today, all three models, the T5040, T5060 and T5080, are updated with new capacity options ranging from 17 TB to 308 TB. These systems leverage the latest in 3D NAND technology and high density drives to offer organizations both higher capacity and lower $/GB. In the future, Tintri will also enable capacity upgrades with some of these models to allow customers to scale up their individual VMstores. Combined with VAS VM-level capabilities and VM Scale-out software, customers can scale with complete flexibility, growing from one Tintri T5040 all flash system to 32 fully populated T5080s.
VM Scale-out Software: New VM Scale-out software provides the following capabilities:
“With hundreds of terabytes of data across thousands of VMs, our business runs on scale. Conventional scale-out promises scale but struggles beyond hundreds of VMs—it doesn’t give us flexibility in how and what to scale, nor the intelligence to predict workload demands,” said Jeff Wilhelm, CTO, Envision Technology Advisors. “Tintri’s Scale-out architecture and VM Scale-out technology will do for storage what VMware’s vSphere and DRS did for compute. The notion of tripling and quadrupling our virtualized infrastructure without adding the corresponding number of dedicated storage personnel has tremendous appeal to us. Combined with advanced analytics, QoS, automation, and policy-based VM management, this gives us a powerful platform to build a very agile virtualized infrastructure.”
“Our environment is constantly changing, and as a service provider we don’t always know the workload plans of our customers. With Tintri’s predictive analytics, previous guesswork is replaced with total visibility into our VMs,” said Dan Timko, President and CTO, Cirrity. “Tintri’s UI shows me exactly how capacity and performance utilization is trending and allows me to model different scenarios. Now, if a customer wants to add 100 SQL servers, I can tell in less than a minute whether we can handle the increased load with our existing infrastructure or whether we need to expand to support it. These analytics further enhance our ability to deliver quality service to our customers.”
Tintri Cloud Suites
Customers can start with a single Tintri VMstore T5040 with 17 TB of effective capacity and scale out to the Tintri Foundation Cloud with 1.2 PB in as few as eight rack units. Or they can grow all the way to the Tintri Ultimate Cloud, which delivers a 10 PB cloud-ready storage infrastructure for up to 160,000 VMs, delivering over 6.4 million IOPS in 64 RU for less than $1/GB effective. And Tintri’s VM-aware storage is so easy to manage that organizations need less than one full time employee to manage their Tintri footprint as they scale from 17 TB to 10 PB.
Both the Foundation Cloud and Ultimate Cloud include Tintri’s complete set of software offerings for storage management, VM-level analytics, VM Scale-out, replication, QoS, and lifecycle management.
Availability and Packaging
VM Scale-out will be available through Tintri Global Center Advanced, which will be available in June 2016 as both a separate software license and a part of the Tintri Software Suite, which consists of Tintri Global Center Advanced, ReplicateVM, SecureVM and SyncVM. Existing Tintri Global Center Standard customers may also purchase upgrades to Tintri Global Center Advanced.
Tintri Foundation Cloud and Tintri Ultimate Cloud will be available for purchase in June 2016 through Tintri and authorized Tintri resellers.
