StratoGen, a VMware hosting provider delivering its cloud computing and managed hosting solutions to customers worldwide, has selected Tintri VMstore for simplified management and increased performance of its public and private cloud services.
Given their global footprint and demanding requirements, StratoGen needed a storage platform that could enable high levels of customer services across three data centers in the UK, United States and Asia. The company needed to be able to both scale rapidly and deliver exceptional performance.
Since deploying Tintri, StratoGen has achieved a significant reduction in its data center footprint and power consumption, while offering customers predictably fast performance and improved disaster recovery services.
VMware Partner Exchange
After encountering Tintri through a VMware Partner Exchange and running a successful demo with development and production workloads, StratoGen purchased two Tintri solutions: one for the main data center in the United States and another one for the UK. The second system was used to create a dedicated environment for one of StratoGen’s largest customers.
“The way that Tintri is able to balance workloads enables us to guarantee quality of service and IOPS,” said Dan Gould, CTO of StratoGen. “Our clients that had performance problems in our previous environment are no longer having issues. Tintri has taken us from a position where we could have potentially lost customers, to one where we can retain all of our existing customers as well as attract new ones. Tintri allows us to state confidently that our customers will get a certain level of performance and it enables us to show how easy it is to manage the environment.”
Organizations including GE, Toyota, United Healthcare, NASA and 6 of the Fortune 15 are utilizing Tintri VM-aware storage. With Tintri they manage only virtual machines, in a fraction of the footprint and at far lower cost than conventional storage. Tintri offers them the choice of all-flash or hybrid-flash platform, converged or stand-alone structure and any hypervisor.
“The Tintri solution is designed to offer high performance and simplified management. StratoGen has proved that storage can be a source of strength and a competitive advantage for service providers,” said Michael McGuire, Chief Sales Officer of Tintri. “We are pleased that StratoGen and its customers are all benefitting from the simplicity and performance of VM-aware storage.”
