Overall Satisfaction with Tintri

We currently run our virtual servers and VDI platform on Tintri appliances. These services are used by students, faculty, staff, and occasionally people outside the organization. It provides a stable, fast storage platform for hosting our virtual infrastructure.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
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.
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.
