Home Business IT Hardware Tintri 'smart storage' simplifies Hyper-V management

Tintri's VMstore flash-based storage for virtualised and cloud environments will soon support Microsoft's Hyper-V.

Where storage systems are typically organised around LUNs (logical unit numbers) and volumes, Tintri instead uses VMs and virtual disks as the basic units.

Previously sold for use with VMware and Citrix XenDesktop, Tintri for Hyper-V has now been announced.

Features include a native SMB 3.0 implementation and native integration with Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) and Hyper-V Manager.

Among the benefits claimed by the company are setup within 10 minutes, scaling to thousands of virtual machines without additional storage provisioning, and instant identification of performance hot spots at the hypervisor, network and storage layers.

“Tintri launched in Australia in January this year and already we are seeing strong interest from a number of key verticals such as higher education, mining and engineering. We’re signing partners, winning customers and growing share as fast as we can," said APJ marketing director Roger Mannett.

"We know Australia is a leader in virtualised infrastructure so it makes good sense that Australian companies are quick to understand the advantage and benefits of smart storage optimised for virtualised and cloud environments."

Hundreds of mixed workloads including SQL Server, Exchange and VDI can be run concurrently on one Tintri VMstore, company officials claimed, and now mixed hypervisors can be deployed, with virtual machines moving between them as required.

"A large number of companies are already deploying multiple hypervisors today. Tintri's approach allows them to accommodate the specific needs of different applications by matching them with the most appropriate hypervisor," said IDC research director Eric Burgener.

"As more customers move to private and hybrid cloud, mixed hypervisor environments will become even more pervasive.

"Tintri's multi-hypervisor support with VM-level data management capabilities provides an ideal platform for IT organisations and service providers to optimise on cost, performance and operational efficiency."

The product will be available in the second half of the year, priced from $50,000.
