BOSTON, Mass. and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – (July 8, 2015) – Tintri, a leading producer of VM-aware storage (VAS) for cloud and virtualized environments, today announced it is partnering with VMTurbo to provide customers with improved VM performance and efficiency. VMTurbo Operations Manager provides automatable actions for business critical applications, mitigating resource contention, host, network or local storage latency according to business and performance criteria. The collaboration enables users of both solutions to deliver VM workload SLAs that assure performance and define Quality of Service (QoS) adherence targets. The two companies have authored a joint Solution Brief, which contains configuration standards that maximize product compatibility.
“We love Tintri because we’re able to define at a VM level which workloads should be on flash storage and which can run on disk, and we love VMTurbo because it helps us decide where those workloads should live and how they should be configured and sized,” said Johnnie McMillan, Manager of Release and Deployment at Thomson Reuters. “Combining these two solutions, with VMTurbo providing intelligent decisions and Tintri providing its unique VM-aware storage, gives us greater control over our data center in the most efficient way possible.”
“Conventional storage arrays are not designed to handle the challenges presented by large-scale, multi-tenant cloud and virtualized data centers,” said Kieran Harty, CTO and co-founder of Tintri. “By combining VMTurbo’s Demand-Driven Control with Tintri’s VM-aware storage, customers will have greater control over their environments. The collaboration enables customers to define QoS targets for business-critical VMs and deliver on specific SLAs, driving down infrastructure cost and improving overall efficiency in the process.”
Unlike other storage platforms, Tintri VMstore surfaces information on the performance of individual VMs, and allows admins to take every storage action at the VM level.
“We’re excited to partner with Tintri, providing users with a solution to their infrastructure challenges,” said Geeta Sachdev, CMO of VMTurbo. “Customers leveraging Tintri VMstore and VMTurbo Operations Manager will be able to guarantee and protect the performance of their virtual machines. Imminent general availability of our software development kit will enable Tintri to offer clients customized integration with VMTurbo.”
