Tintri tweaks VMware support for vSphere 6


Storage vendor Tintri has announced support for the forthcoming VMware vSphere 6.

Tintri aims to be ready to go with VMware vSphere 6 through support for Virtual Volumes, vRealize Operations, and VMware Integrated OpenStack.

Tintri is demonstrating support for VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes and VMware vRealize Operations at VMware Partner Exchange in San Francisco this week.

Support for vSphere Virtual Volumes will be available in vSphere 6 environments. NFS will still be supported, and can be used concurrently with Virtual Volumes.

CTO and co-founder of Tintri co-founder and CTO Kieran Harty said "With our support of VMware vSphere 6, Tintri will offer a scalable implementation of VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes supporting up to one million virtual volumes on a single system to provide unparalleled VM density."

VMware senior director of product management, storage and availability Gaetan Castelein noted Tintri's established support for VMware, and the part the company has played in the Virtual Volumes program.

The newly released Tintri Management Pack for VMware vRealize Operations (pictured) provides storage statistics and insight at the virtual machine level.

Derivco senior virtualisation engineer Firoze Bhorat - an early adopter - said "Tintri support for VMware vRealize Operations is a match made in heaven for us.

"VMware vRealize Operations gave our operations teams a powerful common management platform and Tintri storage gave us unique insight into storage performance by showing it at a virtualised workload level."

Tintri's support for VMware Integrated OpenStack means customers will be able to quickly deploy, clone and tear down virtual machines using Tintri storage.

"For those organisations that are looking to run OpenStack in their VMware environments, VMware Integrated OpenStack is an option that allows them to leverage the vSphere ecosystem," said Harty.

"Tintri's high performance and per-VM management provide a critical storage foundation for VIO implementations."

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
