Tintri Unveils Scale-out Storage Platform
Tintri Inc., a leading producer of VM-aware storage (VAS) for virtualisation and cloud environments, has announced a new scale-out storage platform to enable enterprises and cloud service providers (CSPs) to build their own Amazon-like cloud infrastructure for diverse virtualised workloads. The new platform forms the foundation for the industry’s largest all-flash scale-out, with support for up to 160,000 VMs, 10 petabytes of capacity, and 6.4 million IOPS, for less than $1/GB.
The announcement includes nine new Tintri VMstore T5000 all flash models with capacity expansion capabilities, VM Scale-out software, Tintri Analytics for predictive capacity and performance planning, and two new Tintri Cloud offerings. The simplicity of VAS enables organisations to scale from 17 TB to 10 PB with a common platform and less than one full time employee dedicated to storage management.
“Scale is a defining characteristic of cloud. While many companies aspire to build cloud-scale infrastructures with agility and automation for diverse virtualized workloads, they are held back by conventional storage architecture that’s simply not designed to support those requirements,” said Ken Klein, Tintri Chairman and CEO. “Customers have been forced to choose between limited scale-out that requires a large number of disks or expensive and inefficient scale-out, without the benefits of VM-level visibility, QoS and automation. With today’s announcement, enterprises and CSPs can scale far more effectively—building their own Amazon-like cloud infrastructure—with a VAS platform that allows for control, security, cost efficiency and simplicity.”
