back to article VM-herder? Tintri's hybrids '60 times' easier to manage than trad dual controller arrays

Sixty times easier to manage: that’s the Taneja Group’s judgment of Tintri hybrid arrays compared to a traditional dual-controller array. Hybrid array maker and startup Tintri relies on its system software being closely integrated with VMware to separate it out from mainstream array vendors and give it a sustainable advantage so …

VVOL support?

Nothing like a paid report to get a good review :)

Anyhow, it certainly seems to address many management issues that VMware has today but as VMware will be introducing Virtual Volumes (VVOLs) which is designed to abstract provisioning, replication, snapshot etc to make it easier for VMware to manage the storage, I dont really see how well this will play in the future.

Yes, VVOLs reinforces storage better aligned with virtualization...

Here's a review that wasn't paid for...and I think Tintri's awesome without any money involved.

Agree, with dedupe and flash caches becoming more common, once VVols come on stream their whole value prop disappears with a good chance of their funding following.

8000 VMs offline when you do have a failure, doesn't sound good.

They're _all_ paid for reports. Some are just less obvious than others.

Tintri is simple because it's a preconfigured appliance that only really supports VMware. There are no real storage related options to configure. Single NFS mount point, single datastore, If it works it's fast and simple, if it doesn't or you switch hypervisor, well then you have to bin it.

Anyone can be simple without any options.
