Hosting provider CT4 has adopted Tintri storage for its POD desktop-as-a-service.

CT4's POD is a modular approach to providing desktop-as-a-service either remotely or on premises.

Using VMware Horizon, PODs can be configured for 500, 1000 or 5000 concurrent sessions, and multiple PODs can be combined if necessary.

CT4 is taking advantage of Tintri's VMstore storage array for its deep integration with VMware, giving good performance and what its claimed to be the lowest cost per virtual machine.

CT4 chief technology officer Dan Pearson said "The CT4 POD is a robust DaaS and VDI solution that delivers unprecedented efficiencies and simplicity for customers.

"We didn't realise how easy and smart Tintri storage was until we ran the proof of concept.

"We were literally trouble shooting in minutes compared to hours or days with other storage products.

"Tintri has eliminated complexity, improved performance, increased automation and driven down support requirements reducing overall cost for our clients."

CT4's POD customers include utility, telecommunications and healthcare companies.
