A Deep Dive into Tintri VM Scale-out
This paper illustrates how Tintri’s per-VM management tools work together with predictive analytics and VM Scale-out technology to make it possible to scale out storage while utilizing the management simplicity that is designed into each Tintri VMstore.

LUNs, volumes, RAID, striping and more have nothing to do with the virtual machines and applications that run your business, and only result in storage performance issues and management complexity. Tintri lets you manage what matters: individual virtual machines. With the announcement of VM Scale-out and analytics, Tintri provides virtualization scale-out technology that makes it possible to focus on managing individual VMs instead of storage.

Cloud Continuity Platform is a new infrastructure concept which enables application mobility and protection across public, managed and private clouds, and across different hypervisors. With Cloud continuity platform the right infrastructure can be used to optimize for cost, SLA and performance with simple scalability and flexibility, without disruption to the business and while enabling full business continuity. The choice of a Hybrid Cloud is here.
The Definitive Guide to Monitoring Virtual Environments
The virtualization of physical computers has become the backbone of public and private cloud computing from desktops to data centers, enabling organizations to optimize hardware utilization, enhance security, support multi-tenancy and more. These environments are complex and ephemeral, creating requirements and challenges beyond the capability of traditional monitoring tools that were originally designed for static physical environments. But modern solutions exist, and can bring your virtual env

OVERVIEW

The virtualization of physical computers has become the backbone of public and private cloud computing from desktops to data centers, enabling organizations to optimize hardware utilization, enhance security, support multi-tenancy and more. These environments are complex and ephemeral, creating requirements and challenges beyond the capability of traditional monitoring tools that were originally designed for static physical environments. But modern solutions exist, and can bring your virtual environment to new levels of efficiency, performance and scale.

This guide explains the pervasiveness of virtualized environments in modern data centers, the demand these environments create for more robust monitoring and analytics solutions, and the keys to getting the most out of virtualization deployments.

2017 State of Storage in Virtualization
For the second year, Tegile has partnered with ActualTech Media to research how storage and virtualization trends track with one another and how respondents view technologies such as VMware’s VVols. With responses from more than 700 IT pros and IT leaders, you will discover the applications and storage characteristics that are important today and how respondents’ thoughts have shifted over the past year.
Learn how storage has become the key enabler to bigger and faster virtualization. Key findings:
•    Virtualized instances of SQL Server continue to increase in popularity.
•    Hybrid flash storage (combination of flash and spinning disk) gains even more traction. Hybrid storage systems are now found in 55% of respondent environments.
•    Storage performance issues persist. The majority of respondents indicate that they experience storage performance challenges.

Approaches and Benefits of Network Virtualization
Businesses today aspire to achieve a software-defined datacenter (SDDC) to enhance business agility and reduce operational complexity. However, the SDDC solutions available today forgot about the most complex part of your infrastructure — the network. Network virtualization is critical to simplify application scaling and improve application performance without lengthy maintenance windows and potential security risks.

Outlook Performance in Non-Persistent Environments Using FSLogix's Office 365 Containers
An Independent Remote End-User Experience Performance Benchmark. Published on: http://www.rdsgurus.com/outlook-performance-in-non-persistentenvironments-using-fslogixs-office-365-containers
RDS Gurus decided to run performance tests on Outlook in non-persistent environments using FSLogix’s Office 365 Container solution. The purpose was to illustrate the user experience of remote desktop users working in a Remote Desktop Services environment configured to use FSLogix Office 365 Containers relative to the typical user experience when using native RDS User Profile Disk technology. Their primary focus was to measure how performance degrades when multiple users are simultaneously working with Outlook (“noisy neighbor effect”).
