Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice Accelerates VDI with Tintri VM-Aware Storage

Leading national law firm chooses Tintri for Simplified Management and tight integration with VMware

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – June 26, 2012 – Tintri, Inc., the leading producer of purpose-built, VM-aware storage appliances, today announced that Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, a leading national law firm, has successfully deployed the Tintri VMstore™ appliance to support more than 220 virtual desktops. Womble Carlyle chose Tintri for its VMware integration, superior performance and management simplicity after evaluating both their existing legacy storage solution and another converged storage solution with a flash read-cache.

Womble Carlyle, which has over 1,200 users in their network, uses VDI as their remote access platform for access to business-critical applications while outside of the network. Tintri’s VM-aware storage predictable performance and intuitive management console have drastically reduced both the cost of storage for Womble Carlyle’s VDI deployment and the time required to manage it. Given the success of the current VDI project, the firm plans to expand the VDI project in the near future.

“We wanted to provide a dedicated storage system for our VDI environment and resolved to find a solution that offered strong performance and an easy-to-use management console, but was also tightly integrated with VMware,” said Tim Washburn, systems engineer at Womble Carlyle. “Tintri was far and away the most impressive solution that we evaluated – its VM-aware storage appliance and the level of integration with VMware vSphere and vCenter made it the perfect fit for us. We also wanted to work with a vendor with world-class support, and Tintri has exceeded our expectations, responding at all hours to even minor questions.”

“With Tintri, deploying and managing our VDI environment is an incredibly straightforward, stress-free task,” Washburn said. "Since day one when we set this up, I haven't had to do any management. From the storage standpoint, I haven't had any problems."

“We’re very pleased to be working with Womble Carlyle, an innovative and well-respected law firm,” said Kieran Harty, Tintri CEO and co-founder. “Their success with Tintri underscores our agility in virtual environments with a simple management console that meet the needs of both virtual desktop and server deployments with no drop-off in performance. We look forward to continuing to work with Womble Carlyle on expanding their VDI initiative and on future virtualization projects.”
