Tintri, Inc. Announces General Availability of Next-Generation VM-aware Storage Appliance
Tintri, Inc., the leading producer of VM-aware storage appliances, today announced the general availability of Tintri VMstore T540, its next-generation VM-aware storage appliance. The new dual-controller appliance includes a 50% increase in usable capacity, a 70% increase in flash capacity, and several industry-first capabilities.

New features in the Tintri VMstore T540 include:

  • Bottleneck visualization: Identifying and isolating performance bottlenecks is one of the most tedious VM management tasks. With Tintri VMstore, storage and VM administrators now have instant visibility from the guest OS layer all the way through to the storage layer. They can visualize and immediately identify per-VM or per-vDisk latency at any layer of the infrastructure, making it simple to identify the source of performance issues and take immediate action.
  • VM auto-alignment: Degraded performance due to misalignment between the guest file system and underlying storage is commonplace. With all conventional storage arrays, re-alignment requires manual, disruptive re-mapping of the guest file system. Tintri VMstore now automatically adapts the storage layer to the guest file system without any user interaction or service impact.
  • Dual storage controllers: The next-generation appliance adds fully redundant controllers for high-availability configurations. Like the existing single-controller system, Tintri OS updates do not require system downtime.
  • Expanded capacity. The T540 delivers a single datastore with 13.5TB of usable capacity in a 3U form factor. 2.4 TB of flash, combined with Tintri’s inline dedupe and compression delivers sub-millisecond latency for hundreds of VMs.

“We’ve put a premium on engaging with the VM user community and identifying and addressing the biggest pain points with VM storage,” said Kieran Harty, Tintri CEO. “Features like bottleneck visualization and VM auto-alignment are tailored to the daily challenges that storage and VM admins face. Our aim is to provide a robust storage solution that eliminates complexity for virtualization projects, allowing enterprises to rapidly expand their virtualization deployments with confidence.”
