  3. Hyper-V VM Cloning
  4. High Frequency Snapshots

Orchestration and Tintri APIs

Greetings,

I’d like to point out two orchestration examples that are using Tintri APIs.

The first one is by Nick Colyer on vRrealize orchestration. Nick created vRealize workflows that use Tintri APIs.  The series of posts show workflows that create a Tintri session, obtain a Tintri VM UUID, and perform a Tintri snapshot.

The second by is by a company called Emitrom, which create an orchestrator call Integra.  David LaMotta of Emitrom created a workflow that backs-up a VM to the AWS.  He also did a workflow that restores the VM from the AWS.  These workflows use the Tintri PowerShell Toolkit which is imported into Integra which allows each PowerShell commandlet to be a command in Integra.

I hope you can make use of these examples in your admin environments,
