Tintri VMstore Delivers a New Experience for Municipality of Stellenbosch

Stellenbosch Municipality provides services to a population of 3.8 million people across an area of around 900 km2. It covers a number of towns and hamlets, including Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa, which dates back to 1679 and has a rich heritage in wine production. It is home to the renowned University of Stellenbosch and has a strong business sector. The municipality is home to a disproportionately high number of corporate CEOs and the top ten richest individuals in South Africa reside in Stellenbosch. The municipality employs 1,200 permanent and contract employees to fulfil its duties, including providing water, sanitation, and refuse services to the local public.

Case Study - Stellenbosch

“There is no need to provision the disk when you need more storage. And you also don’t have to move the virtual machine to a faster disk. VMstore is intelligent enough to see what is on the virtual machine and move it to the appropriate disk without having to manually do it. The cherry on top was that the VMstore system would do some thinking for us and have some level of intelligence on its own.”
