The Ease Of Setting Up And Using Tintri Synchronous Replication

I realized today that I have not actually blogged yet about the Tintri Synchronous Replication feature that was released a few months back.  I decided to jump back into the lab to show people just how easy this is to use.  What Tintri has built it’s base on has always been ease of use, and to be honest this feature ...

Tintri vSphere Web Client Plugin Updated

This is just to serve as a quick update on the Tintri vSphere Web Client Plugin that was updated last week.  The plugin has been out for a while and many people use it to take advantage of Tintri specific actions from within the vSphere Web Client.  It’s been very stable and Tintri added in a few more features to ...

Tintri Global Center 3.8 Goes GA With VMstore Update Feature

There has been a lot happening to Tintri Global Center recently and the latest release is no exception.  I wanted to show you one quick major feature update that was included.  It is the ability to update your managed VMstores right from the TGC interface.  In my opinion this added feature marks the first major milestone for TGC to truly ...

Understanding The Different Tintri Service Group Options

I wanted to take a quick minute to document and explain what users are seeing when it comes to the two different implementations of Tintri Service Groups.  I should mention this is something that is a bit temporary while some work is being done to unify the user interfaces between the Tintri VMstore and Tintri Global Center.  That being said ...

Why Installing The Tintri VAAI Plugin Is Important

This is going to be really quick on the topic of the Tintri VAAI Plugin.  I’ve been finding that both new and existing customers have not been installing it for various reasons.  The most common seems to simply be that they were not aware there was one, or they just didn’t get around to it, or they didn’t know what ...

Configure Site Recovery Manager With Tintri in Minutes

Since joining Tintri I have heard from folks that Site Recovery Manager was something that was “Difficult” to use.   I have in the past stood it up many times and while the product itself does require a lot of thought (regardless of the storage platform).  I am no SRM expert but I have always believed the product was very good ...

Onward and Upward with Tintri

The past few weeks have been interesting for me at Tintri.  I have been meeting with lots of partners and customers and there has been some great new cool product announcements.  On the flip side there has been some mis-information out there by some media outlets that seem to just want to do nothing but tear down good companies.  I ...

Tintri VM Scale Out – Storage vMotion Offloading

Storage VMotion technology has been around for a long time.  Those of us that have been around the industry for a while even remember how its original release was actually done via command line.  If memory serves, someone even pre-developed the first UI plugin for it before VMware made it a main stream feature.  Since then other features like Storage ...

Tintri Enterprise Cloud Use Case – SyncVM

I believe all good things come in understanding the use case for something.  I’ve been a part of building Enterprise Clouds since 2010 and I can honestly say this is something I know customers could have used back in the early vCloud Director days.  If you want to read the SyncVM Datasheet you should, but I wanted to simply explain ...

Why Tintri Makes The Best Foundation for Building Enterprise Clouds

So I have been putting together various VMUG presentations titled “Laying the Foundation For Your Enterprise Cloud” and I wanted to explain a little more why I believe this is a great focus for Tintri.  It also came up in a few Facebook exchanges where someone said to me, “Wow you guys are really stretching this Enterprise Cloud thing….it’s just ...

My VMworld 2017 Sponsor Session

Last week I was out at Tintri HQ working furiously with Tristan Todd to come up with a fun, cool, title and abstract for one of our Sponsor Sessions.  The challenge with the sponsor sessions is always the balance between any “sales” pitch and useful information.  We spent a few hours trying to come up with something that we thought ...
