Welcome to Tintri’s May 2016 launch.
I’m just going to quickly cover three launch subjects:
- Increased all-flash VMstores
- VM scale out
- Predictive Analysis
Now the T5000 all-flash arrays have increased storage capacity, approximately a 4 times increase over the old T5000 storage capacity.
|Model||Max Raw Capacity||Max Effective Capacity|
|T5040||23 TB||77 TB|
|T5060||46 TB||154 TB|
|T5080||92 TB||308 TB|
Effective capacity is a result of dedupe, compression, and zero block optimization. See the T5000 All-Flash data sheet for more information.
Along with increased storage capacity, VMstores can be federated together into a pool of storage for VM scale-out. Both hybrid and all-flash can be in the same storage pool for resource allocation and resource management. Via the Tintri Global Center (TGC), deep workload analysis identifies VMs that are growing rapidly or heavily using IOPS and makes VM storage migration recommendations. See Introducing Tintri VM Scale-out for more details.
Even with VM scale-out, you’ll want capacity and performance predictions for planning and forecasting. With Tintri Analytics, you’ll be able crunch numbers for up to 160,000 virtual machines, get application insights, and throw away your crystal ball. For more details, see the Tintri Analytics data sheet.
Until next time,
