I usually blog about APIs, but today I want to point to 2 excellent videos showcasing Tintri’s Tintri Global Center (TGC) GUI. One is on Synchronous Replication and Failover; and the second one is on 1-to-many replication.
Tomer Hagay first reviews the Synchronous Replication configuration which uses Tintri’s Service Groups. Next, he shows all the statistics that are available; for example, the VM latency components: host, network, contention, flash or disk, and mirror. Finally, Tomer shows how easily it is to do transparent failover.
Bill Roth first demonstrates how to find the VMstores’ replication information. Next, he shows how to get protection information for VMs. How to add a new replication link to a VM is shown. A VM can replicate up to 4 different destinations. Of course Service Groups can have 1-to-many.replication too. As you know, one of the cool things about Tintri, is that Tintri has statistics; and in this case, Bill shows the two replication statistics that are available: MBytes Remaining to to be replicated, and Replication Rate, both logical and network.
So check out these informative videos and enjoy Winter Solstice,
