WHOA.com Turns to Tintri to Build Its Public and Private Cloud Services

Tintri Logo 

Tintri, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise cloud platforms, today announced WHOA.com, a next-generation, ISO 27001-certified, secure cloud solutions provider, has replaced NetApp storage solutions with Tintri to reduce operating costs, shrink its IT footprint, and simplify its overall storage management.

Based in Hollywood, Fla., WHOA.com provides cloud services from three tier-four datacenters across the United States to help customers build private and public clouds, in addition to managed replication and continuity services for disaster recovery programs. WHOA.com's secure cloud infrastructure features ISO 27001 and PCI DSS certification and HIPAA compliance for cloud-enabled solutions.

Before moving to Tintri, WHOA.com relied on NetApp systems, which had become expensive to operate and maintain. The company wanted an alternate solution to lower its initial purchase costs and operational overhead to expand the cloud services offered to its customers.

"WHOA.com was looking for a solution that was simple and scalable, so we would not have to put so much effort into managing our infrastructure," said Brock Mowry, WHOA.com co-founder and vice president of infrastructure. "I had been following Tintri for several years and was impressed with the company's technology. Several of my colleagues had used Tintri with great success, which gave me the confidence to run a PoC."

WHOA.com has deployed Tintri systems across its operations, placing one system in a development lab for work on a disaster recovery solution, and dedicating another to one of its major private cloud customers. They are also using Tintri systems as the foundation for their public cloud offerings.

By turning to Tintri, WHOA.com was able to apply new automations, cut time spent managing storage-related work in half and significantly shrink its data center footprint. In addition, Tintri's central management console provides WHOA.com with greater visibility into the performance of individual applications.

"The level of performance detail was not available with NetApp's management tools," Mowry said. "With performance statistics at the VM-level, it is much easier to troubleshoot any infrastructure issues. And Tintri's web services architecture has made it far easier for us to meet customer expectations for an agile cloud environment-we can quickly build up and tear down environments as needed while guaranteeing the performance of our customers' applications."

"More and more organizations and cloud service providers are turning to Tintri to be more efficient and competitive with their cloud services," said Yael Zheng, chief marketing officer at Tintri. "We are proud to help WHOA.com, along with other cloud service providers, succeed with Tintri. WHOA.com can now extend the automation, analytics and self service benefits of an enterprise cloud platform to their customers."
