MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 25, 2013) - Tintri, Inc., the leading producer of purpose-built, VM-aware storage platforms, today announced that the Enumclaw School District #216 of Washington has successfully deployed Tintri to support its recently-launched virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) project, as well as more than 90 percent of its virtualized servers.
After initial concern about their existing, legacy storage system's inability to ensure adequate performance for VDI, Enumclaw selected Tintri VM-aware storage to support the deployment. According to Enumclaw, Tintri was chosen for its ability to deliver "ultra-book" performance, its cost-effectiveness based on the highest virtual machine density in the industry and the ease of per-VM level management.
Enumclaw, which has over 4,200 students and faculty across eight separate schools and support offices, recently initiated a VDI project to enable a better overall end user experience at a modest cost. They evaluated ten storage solutions, including legacy, and flash-based arrays, to support their VDI project and ultimately determined Tintri to be by far the best, most cost-effective fit for ensuring their requisite performance levels -- while also providing a much more streamlined solution for managing virtualized environments.
"Tintri has absolutely enabled us to successfully deploy VDI, and do so in a cost-effective, easy-to-manage manner," said Chad Marlow, technology director for Enumclaw Public Schools. "In addition to supporting our needs for VDI, a single Tintri system is more than capable of handling our virtualized server workloads as well; we currently have over 90 percent of our virtualized infrastructure running on Tintri, and plan to add the remainder in the near future. What's more, their intuitive dashboard features -- especially the ability to drill down to individual VMs -- has enabled my team and I to save valuable time in the overall VM management process."
"As more and more organizations shift to virtualization, there's an even greater need for a modern, VM-aware approach to storage," said Geoff Stedman, vice president of marketing for Tintri. "VDI introduces new performance complexities that can't be met by legacy storage systems because they were not built for virtualized infrastructures. Tintri VM-aware storage is specifically designed to enable organizations to overcome these hurdles and achieve desired levels of performance -- without having to spend obscene amounts of money over-provisioning storage."

The pioneer of VM-aware storage, Tintri develops storage solutions for the software-defined-data-center (SDDC). Co-founded by Dr. Kieran Harty, who led engineering at VMware for seven years, Tintri was designed from the ground up specifically to make storage for virtualization work better. Easy to run in any production environment, Tintri scales globally to meet the demands of virtualized applications with manageability and visibility at the VM level, flash performance at disk prices, and racked in systems that require a fraction of the typical data center footprint.
