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 ...

The Challenge With Community Event Sponsorship

This actually seems to be a topic that bubbles up every year before, during, and after VMworld.  Nobody is going to argue that community events are valuable to many people who attend them and bring others to them.  There is however an inherent challenge that has yet to be overcome by the ask for sponsorships at these.  I know I ...

The State Of VCDX Nearly A Decade Later – VMworld 2017

Yesterday I stopped by the VCDX town hall to catch up with some old friends and see the state of things since I left VMware.  Some of the things I am going to say may upset some people.  I bit my tongue a little yesterday afternoon, but as I was thinking about it, now I think a few elephants in ...

Tintri Cloud Connector – Long Term Backup To The Public Cloud

Everyone wants to have some level of public cloud backup strategy.  It doesn’t matter if it’s for personal use or business, we are all either doing it, or want to do it.  The goal is to leverage multiple clouds to keep data protected for different reasons.  In most cases Public Cloud Object storage is cheaper than our on premises storage ...

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 ...

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 ...

So What Exactly Are You Doing At Tintri?

As I started week two at Tintri yesterday I was asked a few times exactly what my role is.  I have this title of Sr. Cloud Solutions Architect, but what does that really mean?  At the end of the day it’s a title, but there is a lot more I am finding I will be doing.  Most people know I ...

My First Week At Tintri

That’s about what it feels like.  I’ve had to drink from the firehose, but this week has been more like trying to take on the hydrant!  It’s been great though.  I can tell you it’s humbling to be welcomed by so many people I already know as well as so many new ones.  I’m trying to come up to speed ...
