MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIF., - April 1, 2014 - Tintri, the pre-IPO virtualization and cloud storage company, today announced that it has developed the industry’s first drone-based delivery of the company’s popular VMstore systems in order to streamline the delivery experience and meet strong demand for smart storage.
“At Tintri we have always pushed ourselves to provide the most leading edge products to our customers,” said Yael Zheng, Chief Marketing Officer at Tintri. “But our innovation doesn’t stop with products. With a sterling reputation for customer service, we strive to provide the best end-to-end experience. If our customers want Tintri’s smart storage at the snap of a finger, how could we not fulfill that need?”
The state-of-the art octocopter drones are capable of delivering a Tintri VMstore to anywhere in the world within 30 minutes after a customer places the order. In many cases, the machine arrives before the Tintri service team is onsite.
“We love our Tintri smart storage. What's even cooler is that now the drone delivery gives us the instant gratification of having it delivered 30 minutes after we hit the order button online," said John Smith from We Love IT & Storage, Ltd. “Tintri provides more capacity and performance than competing systems that are more than double the size and many times the weight of Tintri. The fact that one Tintri VMstore can support up to 2000 VMs means that we don’t need to order a rackful of traditional storage that costs a fortune, takes up a whole lot of floor space and is a headache to manage.”
“Like Tintri’s smart storage, our drones are no different. They know how to pick the most direct route, delivering the systems on time and safely into the hands of happy customers. These are smart drones delivering smart storage,” said Zheng.
Happy April fool’s day! Although this announcement is a joke, our commitment to building the next great storage company is not. For more information on how Tintri is delighting customers, please visit www.tintri.com/customers.
