Now that our big Tintri Launch is done, I would like to point to some videos that you might find interesting and educational. These videos review the Tintri launch as well as provide reference materials for earlier products. I would recommend watching these videos in full screen mode.
First off, the Storage Field Day at Tintri is now online which includes 6 videos. This set of videos present a comprehensive view of our new Tintri products.
- Tintri Product Overview and Vision with Kieran Harty
- Tintri VM-Aware Storage and Quality of Service Demo with Justin Lauer
- Tintri VM Scale Out Demo with Mark Gitter
- Tintri Analytics Demo with Brandon Salmon
- Tintri SyncVM demo with Christopher Slater
- Tintri Wrap-up Discussion
If Brandon Salmon’s demo on Tintri Analytics left you wanting more, then check-out Andrew Large‘s Tintri Analytics Video Series. The series contains an introduction, creating application definitions, predicting resource utilization, and planing future VM deployments.
Next up, Sunil Muralidhar, demonstrates the features of TGC Service Groups. TGC Service Groups allow a collection of VMs across multiple VMstores to have the same protection and QoS policies. There is a Python API TGC Service Group QoS example as well as a PowerShell example on GitHub.
In a set of 6 videos, Rob Girard covers cloning and Sync VM manually and with automation.
- Manually cloning VMs
- Automating cloning VMs with scripts
- Reconfiguring VMs for testing
- Manually refreshing VMs with production data
- Automatically refreshing VMs with production data
- Automatically refreshing VMs from a single snapshot
Finally, Christopher Slater is up again in a another set of 6 videos that discusses databases and Tintri.
- Performance visualization and isolation
- Snapshots in seconds
- Clone a database in a few clicks
- Restore a database with SyncVM
- VM level replication made easy
- Set QoS policy for an individual VM
