Tintri Announces Support For VMware vSphere 6
Smart storage provider Tintri has announced that the company is now providing support for VMware vSphere 6.
vSphere 6 is the latest iteration of VMware’s flagship virtualisation platform. Tintri, as a VMware partner and a leading producer of smart storage for virtualisation and cloud environments, has revealed that it is ready to support this new release.
Tintri has said that it plans to introduce support for VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes while also stating that it will be releasing Tintri Management Pack for VMware vRealize Operations. Formerly called VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite, this solution is designed to enable customers to monitor Tintri VMstore systems at the VM level directly from vROps management console.
Furthermore, Tintri has also announced support for VMware Integrated OpenStack, which allows customers to run OpenStack on top of their existing VMware infrastructure.
At present Tintri provides its application-aware storage with virtual machine level visibility and management for environments running VMware vSphere 5 and above using the NFS protocol. With this new update, Tintri will extend that support to vSphere 6 using NFS and to vSphere Virtual Volumes, thereby providing customers with the choice to leverage both technologies concurrently on a VMstore.
Kieran Harty, CTO and co-founder of Tintri said: “Tintri believes that storage must provide intelligent performance, services and analytics at the VM level.
“With our support of VMware vSphere 6, Tintri will offer a scalable implementation of VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes supporting up to one million virtual volumes on a single system to provide unparalleled VM density.”
