Tintri Inc., a producer of VM-aware storage (VAS) for virtualization and cloud environments, has joined the Microsoft Enterprise Cloud Alliance (ECA). This collaboration would reinforce Tintri‘s commitment to deliver solutions integrated with Microsoft products to help customers streamline and automate access to their cloud-based environments.
Tintri now offers native SMB 3.0 implementation and integration with Microsoft SCVMM and Hyper-V Manager – allowing Hyper-V customers’ greater visibility and control of their virtualized environments.
“Tintri VM-aware storage helps customers generate the most value from their Hyper-V virtualized environments,” said Allison Jones, Principal Program Manager, Microsoft. “We’re excited about our collaboration with Tintri. The company continues to bring new storage innovations to market that make it easier for our customers to build, deploy and manage their private clouds.”
The number of Hyper-V virtual machines stored on Tintri VMstores globally has increased 5 times in the past 12 months, according to Tintri, with customers that span financial services, technology, healthcare, manufacturing, government and more. Tintri states that these organizations are building their private clouds faster, at lower cost and with less ongoing operating effort.
“The Tintri environment is remarkably simple,” said Tim Starkenburg, Systems Administrator at Life-Science Innovations. “I was able to set up the system and link it to our servers within half an hour without using consultants! And when we got our second Tintri, it only took 15 minutes to set it up. It actually took longer to rack the unit than to get it hooked up to Hyper-V.”
Tintri powers hundreds of thousands of virtual machines running business critical databases, enterprise apps, desktops and mobile apps, and private cloud deployments. The company helps global enterprises such as AMD, F5 Networks, GE, NEC, NTT, MillerCoors and Time Warner maximize their virtualization and cloud investments.
