VM-aware, hyper-converged storage to make room for more hypervisors

So far the "VM" in VM-aware storage stands more for VMware than for virtual machine. Most vendors in this market develop their systems for VMware vSphere, the dominant hypervisor on the market.

Goodbye LUN technology, you served us well

The era of LUNs and volumes, as we have known them for decades in the data storage industry, is quietly coming to an end. And if you ask me, it's for all the right reasons, even if storage administrators may feel threatened by the change.

Storage infrastructure management is still elusive

We've been on a multi-decade crusade to address performance and basic storage management tasks to handle things such as protecting data in place, and scaling and expanding our data storage systems to meet new requirements. But today, when performance and scaling and expansion issues are addressed, it will be revealed that the last major challenge in the data center is storage management.

Tintri VMstore: Zero Management Storage (TVS)

Storage challenges in the virtual infrastructure are tremendous. Virtualization consolidates more IO than ever before, and then obscures the sources of that IO so that end-to-end visibility and understanding become next to impossible. As the storage practitioner labors on with business-as-usual, deploying yet more storage and fighting fires attempting to keep up with demands, the business is losing the battle around trying to do more with less.

The problem is that inserting the virtual infrastructure in the middle of the application-to-storage connection, and then massively expanding the virtual infrastructure, introduces a tremendous amount of complexity. A seemingly endless stream of storage vendors are circling this problem today with an apparent answer – storage systems that deliver more performance. But more “bang for the buck” is too often just an attempt to cover up the lack of an answer for complexity-induced management inefficiency – ranging across activities like provisioning, peering into utilization, troubleshooting performance problems, and planning for the future.

With an answer to this problem, one vendor has been sailing to wide spread adoption, and leaving a number of fundamentally changed enterprises in their wake. That vendor is Tintri, and they’ve focused on changing the way storage is integrated and used, instead of just tweaking storage performance. Tintri integrates more deeply with the virtual infrastructure than any other product we’ve seen, and creates distinct advantages in both storage capabilities and on-going management.

Taneja Group recently had the opportunity to put Tintri’s VMstore array through a hands-on exercise, to see for ourselves whether there’s mileage to be had from a virtualization-specific storage solution. Without doubt, there is clear merit to Tintri’s approach. A virtualization specific storage system can reinvent a broad range of storage management interactions – by being VM-aware – and fundamentally alter the complexity of the virtual infrastructure for the better. In our view, these changes stand to have massive impact on the TCO of virtualization initiatives (some of which are identified in the table of highlights below) but the story doesn’t end there. At the same time they’ve fundamentally changed management, Tintri has also innovated around storage technology that enables Tintri VMstore to serve up storage beneath even the most extreme virtual infrastructures.

VM-herder? Tintri's hybrids '60 times' easier to manage than trad dual controller arrays

Sixty times easier to manage: that’s the Taneja Group’s judgment of Tintri hybrid arrays compared to a traditional dual-controller array. Hybrid array maker and startup Tintri relies on its system software being closely integrated with VMware to separate it out from mainstream array vendors and give it a sustainable advantage so they can’t catch up while it is building its business. One aspect of this is its light touch management.

Pain Points within the Virtual Infrastructure: How to Not Lose Your Cost Savings

Backup Balancing Act: Growing Pains with Data Backup and the Cost of Migration

Backup these days is, as I view it, an incredibly interesting topic. Data protection has always been a challenging operation for the business. When you think about it, it is one of the most physical of systems, requiring tremendous amounts of data movement and storage - moving and storing the same bits over and over again with such requirements for speed and then storage that the task has at many different times in the history of IT seemed like mission impossible.

How Do you Software-Define Storage? Explaining the "real meat" behind SDS

"What is Software-defined Storage?" This is by no means an easy question to answer, and there are a lot of people pushing different visions and definitions. For our part in this conversation, I try to remain attentive to a longer term ideal vision (where the market should go) while staying attentive to reality today, and where practitioners can actually get tangible benefit from solutions that may be early or partial incarnations of that long term ideal, but still offer significant benefit today.

Five VM-Level Infrastructure Adaptations

It used to be that IT struggled to intimately understand every app in order to provide the right supporting infrastructure. Today, server virtualization makes the job much easier, because IT can now just cater to VMs. By working and communicating at the VM level, both app owners and infrastructure admins stay focused, using a common API to help ensure apps are hosted effectively and IT runs efficiently.

Massively Scalable, Intrinsically Simple: Tintri's Low TCO for the Virtualized Data Center

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.

Flash technology is certainly part of the solution to performance challenges posed by virtualized workloads, but can be prohibitively expensive to broadly implement across the environment. Although flash can be deployed in a number of targeted ways and placed in the infrastructure, the more it is tied down to specific hosts and workloads, the less benefit it provides to the overall production environment. This in turn causes more management overhead.

Recently Taneja Group ran Tintri VMstore storage through our hands-on validation lab and documented significant large factors of improvement over traditional storage. Those factors accrue through Tintri’s cost-effective acquisition, simplicity and ease of deployment and data migration, effective high performance and availability and smooth expansion over time.

This Field Report validates our impressive lab findings with feedback from the field: six customers who have Tintri storage in production environments. While each customer has a unique own story to tell, we found that everyone documented a compelling value proposition based on TCO factors. Throughout our research we found that Tintri’s approach provides significantly lower TCO than traditional storage solutions.
