MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 11, 2013) - Tintri, the leading producer of storage for virtualization and cloud environments, today announced that Beyond Nines, a leading provider of third-party hosting solutions for non-profits using the Blackbaud® suite of applications, has dramatically simplified its virtualized application performance and virtual machine density with Tintri VMstore storage.
In the past, Beyond Nines used traditional disk-bound storage systems to host customer instances of Blackbaud® software and its related infrastructure VMs, such as Active Directory and IIS servers. SQL queries in Beyond Nines' fully virtualized environment regularly took as much as six hours to complete, hampering customer productivity. Scaling storage infrastructure to accommodate new VMs was also prohibitively difficult and time consuming.
By deploying Tintri storage, Beyond Nines increased its VM density and reduced database application reporting time by 99 percent. Tintri VMstore also eliminated manual tuning, greatly increasing administrators' productivity. The new storage solution improved efficiency so much that Beyond Nines was able to expand into a second data center without adding a single member to its administrative staff.
"Tintri's FlashFirst design gives us a combination of high performance and low-cost management that we've never experienced with any other storage," said Glen Kendell, President, Hosting & Operations at Beyond Nines. "We can run hundreds of high performance customer environments on a single Tintri VMstore T540, and queries take a fraction of the time they did with our previous storage platform."
"Beyond Nines is an excellent example of how smarter, application-centric storage can improve results across the business," said Sachin Chheda, Director of Product and Solution Marketing at Tintri. "Tintri Zero Management storage didn't just give them faster IT performance. It enabled Beyond Nines to expand their service offering and increase overall customer satisfaction."
