VMware today announced the upcoming availability of vSphere 6.0 which includes the vSphere Virtual Volumes (VVOL) technology. Tintri will support both vSphere 6.0 and VVOL in an upcoming release. More people are talking about the value of aligning and integrating enterprise storage with virtualization at the VM level using VVOL, and the more investigation they do, the more they are looking to Tintri.
Why? Because Tintri has been delivering enterprise storage that does everything at the VM level for the last 4 years. We have been working with VMware as a design partner on VVOL, but because we are built for virtualization, we also support vSphere on NFS with all the benefits of virtual volumes. Now that VVOL has been announced, and you will actually be able to test VVOL in your datacenter, here are four things to keep in mind:
In short, Tintri is excited about VVOL—it validates our VM-level approach and will help make VM-level storage functionality available to more customers. We also believe that we offer the best virtual volumes implementation out there, whether you use VVOL immediately or whether it is in your future plans. We invite you to take a look at Tintri to see the benefits of VVOL today.
Unique control with VM-level actions for infrastructure functions including snapshots, replication and QoS make protection and performance certain in production, and accelerate test and development cycles.
