Accelerating virtualised servers is proving a profitable game for Tintri. The start-up has been doubling revenues every quarter since its launch last year and has just gained a large slug of cash from venture capitalists who see great prospects of a large payout. Tintri launched in March 2011 with a hybrid flash and disk drive …
>> The additional cash will be used for research and development, expanding sales operations and building out its global infrastructure. The development might involve adding Microsoft Hyper-V support, greatly increasing Tintri's potential market and adding interest opportunities in Microsoft's channel. Deduplication may be of interest as well, although, as a hybrid flash-disk device, Tintri's appliance doesn't face the same cost problems as all-flash appliances do.
What about replication? Does it support replication? Most people need replication... storage efficiency is ok, but like you pointed out disks are plenty cheap compared to flash.
This is Geoff Stedman, VP of Marketing for Tintri. Thanks for your question. Today we support per-VM snapshots and advanced cloning. There are several ways to deliver replication and at the upcoming VMworld event, Tintri will be demonstrating our own VM-aware replication capability, which we of course are very excited about.
