Taneja Group Technology Validation Proves Tintri Delivers on Superior Performance, Efficiency and Sharply Reduced Management Claims Versus Traditional Storage

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 7, 2014) - Tintri, the leading producer of storage for virtualization and cloud environments, today announced the findings of a new Taneja Group Technical Validation report: "Tintri VMstore: Zero Management Storage." Featuring insights from Taneja's hands-on testing, the report provides an in-depth assessment of Tintri VMstore, including performance, capacity and management overhead.

"The Tintri VMstore is as close to truly zero-management storage as we have ever seen," said Taneja Group Director - Validation Services Jeff Boles. "Rather than just tweaking storage performance, Tintri has changed the way in which storage is integrated and used. It offers the deepest integration with virtual infrastructure of any product we've evaluated, giving it distinct advantages in both storage capabilities and ongoing management."

Some key takeaways from the report include:

  • Performance: Delivers 6X better performance than traditional storage systems
  • Capacity advantage: Provides 6X better capacity-density than traditional storage of similar performance
  • Routine deployment time at scale: Reduces annual time spent on deployment by 52X
  • Estimated time to troubleshoot: End-to-end path insight allows administrators to drill down into problems with individual workload demands and utilization in minutes instead of days, even if they are in the hypervisor or network
  • Estimated annual management time and effort: End-to-end virtual infrastructure reduces management time by 60X

The Tintri VMstore is built on a VM-Aware storage architecture, which understands and operates on VMs and virtual desks. VMstore provides a detailed view of performance including size, I/O, throughput, utilization and latency at the individual VM and virtual disk level without additional software or agents.

"The Taneja Group Technology Validation provides powerful evidence that the Tintri application-centric storage not only simplifies deployment and reduces management overhead, it also delivers incredible performance. Our patented FlashFirst architecture enables our customers to support thousands of different VMs on a single system, with 99 percent of the performance of an all-flash array at a fraction of the capital cost," said Kieran Harty, CTO, Tintri.
