MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 11, 2016 – Tintri, a leading producer of VM-aware storage for virtualization and cloud environments, today announced StratoGen is using Tintri VMstore across its public and private cloud services for simplified management and increased performance. Since deploying Tintri, StratoGen has achieved a 4x reduction in its data center footprint and power consumption, while offering customers predictably fast performance and improved disaster recovery services.
StratoGen is a leading VMware hosting provider, delivering cloud computing and managed hosting solutions to some of the world’s most respected brands. 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.
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 centre in the US and another one for the UK. The second system was used to create a dedicated environment for one of StratoGen’s largest customers.
Since the Tintri deployment StratoGen has been able to offer its customers a better option for disaster recovery and guaranteed quality of service—and that has helped StratoGen build differentiated services and stronger customer relationships.
Dan Gould, CTO at StratoGen commented: “The way that Tintri is able to balance workloads enables us to guarantee quality of service and IOPS. 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.”
Michael McGuire, Chief Sales Officer at Tintri said: “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. We are pleased that StratoGen and its customers are all benefitting from the simplicity and performance of VM-aware storage.”
Tintri VM-aware storage is the simplest for virtualized applications and cloud. Organizations including GE, Toyota, United Healthcare, NASA and 6 of the Fortune 15 have said “No to LUNs.” 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. Rather than obsess with storage, leaders focus on the business applications that drive value—and that requires that they keep storage simple.
