Gartner Critical Capabilities for General-Purpose Midrange Storage Arrays report evaluates 6 use cases and 17 storage arrays

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., – November 12, 2015 — / — Tintri Inc., a leading producer of VM-aware storage (VAS) for virtualization and cloud environments, today announced Gartner has assigned its Tintri VMstore T800 Hybrid-Flash series storage the second highest product score for Server Virtualization and VDI—one of six use cases evaluated in its Critical Capabilities report. We believe this result for the VMstore T800 underscores the benefits of Tintri’s VM-aware storage architecture for virtualized applications.

The Critical Capabilities for General-Purpose Midrange Storage Arrays report, published October 21, 2015, presented a number of specific findings, including: “Server virtualization, desktop virtualization, big data analytics, cloud storage and unconstrained data growth are reprioritizing the traditional metrics of product attractiveness.” The report also emphasized that “…the real challenge of performing a successful storage infrastructure upgrade is not designing an infrastructure upgrade that works, but designing an upgrade that optimizes agility and service-level objectives (SLOs), and minimizes total cost of ownership (TCO).”

Tintri builds storage that reduces management expense and maintains consistent, predictable VM performance enables organizations to significantly reduce costs and more rapidly deploy new and updated applications that drive business value. Tintri storage achieves this goal for virtualized environments through inbuilt performance isolation, quality of service (QoS), real-time actionable analytics, and storage functionality such as replication and snapshots all provided at the VM level.

“Tintri VM-aware storage products offer capabilities that conventional, LUN-based storage simply cannot match. We feel this is validated by our product scores in the Gartner Critical Capabilities report, and by the thousands of customers that trust Tintri to remove complexity and improve storage performance,” said Kieran Harty, CTO and co-founder of Tintri. “Tintri is built for virtualized enterprises and cloud service providers—offering them the choice of all-flash and hybrid-flash systems, all major hypervisors, and both converged and standalone solutions. This flexibility and control is powerful, and we will continue to innovate new capabilities that save our customers’ time, money and sanity.”

Tintri has achieved triple digit growth year over year. Nearly 50 percent of Tintri customers have revenue of over $1 billion. Tintri storage is trusted with more than 500,000 virtual machines representing more than 50 petabytes of user data by enterprises and cloud service providers including Chevron, ConocoPhillips, European Investment Bank, GE, NTT, MillerCoors, Rogers Communications, SK Telecom, Sony, Time Warner, United Healthcare and dozens of U.S. Federal Government agencies. Tintri’s rapid growth demonstrates that as organizations embrace virtualization, they need storage that does the same.
