Tintri by DDN Releases Tintri TGC 4.0 - The Next Generation of Simplified Storage Management

Tintri by DDN, the leader in VM-integrated storage systems, today announced the general availability of Tintri Global Center (TGC) 4.0 release. This milestone marks the first major release since DDN acquired Tintri in September 2018 and represents a major step forward towards creating a centrally managed and fully autonomous storage environment.

The centerpiece of Tintri's management framework, TGC 4.0 enhances VM and VMstore visibility, analytics and diagnostics across a multi-VMstore environment. Tintri Global Center 4.0 delivers further functionality, enabling users to take global actions across a pool of arrays. Improved algorithms deliver even more accurate recommendations for VM placement within an environment.

Coupled with Tintri's exceptional Storage vMotion offload capabilities, virtualization administrators can now relocate their VMs from one Tintri array to any other Tintri array at any time, with near-zero impact on the host, storage or network. Not only are migrations completed with minimal impact to the host, but they are completed by an average of 10x faster than traditional Storage vMotion operations. With this VM migration, storage-level snapshots and policies are migrated and preserved as part of the process, creating a transparent and near-continuous way to optimize VM performance within a pool of Tintri arrays.

"Tintri by DDN's TGC 4.0 release is exciting on so many levels. Not only is this the first major release since DDN acquired Tintri this summer, but it also represents a breakthrough in helping VM storage administrators instrument and automate their environments," said Tomer Hagay, senior director of product management at Tintri by DDN. "Tintri is back, and this is just a first step in an exciting set of releases we have coming up."

The key behind TGC capabilities is the deep integration between Tintri and the hypervisor. By being able to track granular metrics, Tintri can manage performance and optimize VM placement based on deep analysis of VM activity. By combining better visibility with transparent operations, administrators can eliminate manual operations frequently associated with VM management.

Customers clearly desire an architecture that allows them to leverage existing data to generate insights into how to optimize the current environment and to predict future needs. Currently, customers are often limited by their current infrastructure and forced to make trade-offs between optimizing application performance and ongoing system operations. Tintri eliminates that barrier and unlocks automated, impact-free optimization.
