Tintri update delivers multi-hypervisor support


'Smart storage' provider Tintri has updated its operating software, adding multi-hypervisor support.

Tintri's flash based storage is designed for virtualised and cloud environments, and simplifies the task of data management in such situations.

Tintri OS 3.0 adds multi-hypervisor support through Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.

"Tintri's support for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, via the new Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.3 API, will provide Red Hat customers an on-ramp to deploy high-level functionality required for robust yet simple cloud computing services based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform," said Red Hat's general manager of virtualisation and OpenStack Radhesh Balakrishnan.

The other main feature of the new software is integration with Microsoft Active Directory and LDAP directory services, providing access control and authentication for a Tintri VMstore on a per user basis.

Tintri OS 3.0 supports up to 2,000 virtual machines on a VMstore T650.

In related news, the company also announced Tintri Global Center 1.1, which provides for centralised monitoring and reporting of up to 64,000 virtual machines across 32,000 VMstores.

Also new is the Tintri Automation Toolkit, a PowerShell-based tool for automating virtualisation and cloud data management workflows.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
