Fast-growing virtualized environments present a thorny storage challenge to IT. Whether mission-critical applications with demanding SLAs, VDI rollouts with boot storms, or deploying a private cloud for large dev & test environments: delivering virtualized environments and cloud deployments using traditional storage can stall or break a virtualization project. This Field Report validates our impressive lab findings with feedback from the field: six customers who have Tintri storage in production environments.
The main benefit of an application-aware storage model is that it allows the storage for each individual application to be managed and optimized independently, regardless of what other workloads and applications are present. Storage system features like high performance, balanced scalability, data reduction, and an application-aware management paradigm are critical to the efficient use of storage resources.
This Best Practices Guide for running VMware vCenter™ Site Recovery Manager™ (SRM) on Tintri VMstore™ systems is intended to assist Data Protection and Disaster Recovery (DR) Administrators, IT Administrators and Architects who are responsible for deploying and managing DR strategies within their virtual infrastructures powered by Tintri VMstore storage appliances. This guide focuses specifically on SRM 5.8 – and therefore all instructions and screenshots focus on the vSphere Web Client – although the Tintri Storage Replication Adapter (SRA) supports SRM 5.5 as well.
This Tintri Best Practices Guide for Backup and Recovery will assist individuals who are responsible for the design, deployment, and DR of Tintri VMstore™ Systems. This document will discuss best practices for deploying Symantec NetBackup for data protection leveraging vStorage APIs for Data Protection (VADP) for backups. It also discusses the use of Tintri’s SnapVM™, CloneVM™ and ReplicateVM™ features to complement data protection of virtual machines and critical applications hosted on Tintri’s VMstores with Symantec NetBackup.
The View component of VMware Horizon™ 6 brings the agility of cloud computing to the desktop and revolutionizes desktops into highly available and agile services delivered from your cloud. It enables higher levels of availability, scalability and reliability for virtual desktops. VCAI leverages storage arrays’ native cloning abilities to offload storage operations within a VMware View environment. As a result, VCAI improves provisioning speeds and provides integrated management in View Composer for customers wanting to leverage advanced storage capabilities, such as per-VM snapshots and clones, offered by Tintri VMstore systems.
This Best Practices Guide for running SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability Groups on Tintri VMstoreTM systems is intended to assist SQL DBAs, IT Administrators and Architects who are responsible for deploying and managing clustered Microsoft SQL Database servers within their virtual infrastructures powered by Tintri VMstore storage appliances.
This Best Practices Guide for deploying Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) on Tintri VMstore systems will assist individuals who are responsible for the design and deployment of Tintri VMstore systems for running RHEV environments. This document will discuss configuration of the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager (RHEV-M) and configuring host servers in a RHEV cluster, using Tintri per-VM features to deploy, configure and manage data protection of virtual machines (VMs) hosted on Tintri VMstores.
Built on the industry's first and leading application-aware storage architecture, Tintri Vmstore delivers performance for thousands of VMs with sub-millisecond latencies using a patented hybrid flash and disk storage architecture. This technical paper discusses how Tintri FlashFirst Design including VM-level QoS works and how it makes virtualization simple, predictable, and efficient.
This white paper describes how the Tintri OS and its underlying file system provide unparalleled data integrity and intelligent performance for serving hundreds of VMs in a single appliance. It also examines Tintri's proprietary redundant array of independent disks (RAID) implementation for comprehensive data integrity.
Unidesk VDI management software for Citrix XenDesktop and VMware Horizon View and Tintri VM-aware storage are an ideal combination for high performance, easy-to-manage VDI. This white paper provides benefits and design considerations for deploying Unidesk with the Tintri VMstore storage appliance.
