Tintri

When you need a simple storage platform that is built from the ground up for performance. If IOPS is important to you, this is a great product for you.

SMB business Tegile pricing and performance is particularly well suited. BC/DR scenarios are also enhanced as they are extremely good at upgrading each side and failing over for upgrades. I don't know any situations where these would not be appropriate.

Pros

Tintri

  • Extremely simple design and intuitive user interface. This allows me to get the information I need and perform the tasks I need with very few clicks.
  • Incredibly fast; IOPS constraints are no longer even a consideration, let alone an issue.
  • Excellent support; these appliances almost never have issues, but if something does arise, technical support is fast and knowledgeable. I talk directly with someone who can help me, not go through the escalation chain.

  • Fast writes to and retrieves from the disks.
  • Fast ethernet communication and full support for Vmware.
  • NFS storage means no LUN rebuilding or painful LUN migrations.

Cons

Tintri

  • Not necessarily a negative, but if you go with Tintri, you will be buying other hardware as well. There are hyper-converged products that are all-in-one. Like I said, not a negative, more of an observation.

  • I would like to see every update to be able to be reached via either partial or full updates. In the past we had progressed to one level of software and then found we could not get to a later version from that level, though they did address that.

It just works, and works very well. The GUI is clean and easy to understand, and the dashboard gives vital information at a glance. It also gives a very comprehensive view of what all the moving parts are doing. It is so clear and matches the view in real life that I can have a non-technical person looking at it and talking to me on the phone and we both see the same things, instantly.

Alternatives Considered

Tintri

We chose Tintri because it allowed us to no longer have to carefully manage our storage platform. We pretty much set it and forget it. Also, management of Tintri does not require a storage expert. This is no longer a full time job to manage.

We used to have both Nimble and Compellant in the past, and there is no comparison with the Tegile offerings. The Tegiles outperform them in every area and are easier to use.

Return on Investment

Tintri

  • Allowed us to drive down the amount of time required to manage our storage platform from hours per week to minutes per month.
  • Removed the complexity of having to manage multiple LUNs or datastores, allowing us to focus our time and efforts on more value-add things.
  • Removed the need to troubleshoot performance issues; the platform is never the bottleneck.

  • It has increased our productivity in our database users by about 40%
