Tintri Synchronous Replication

Industry-Leading Functionality Puts Zero RPO Replication Within Reach for Every Organization's Mission Critical Applications

Synchronous Replication is essential to the recovery of mission critical virtualized and cloud applications. Until now, organizations that wanted synchronous replication to protect those applications had to use complex and expensive storage, limiting the benefits of zero recovery point objective (RPO) disaster recovery (DR) to those with the largest IT staffs and budgets. Tintri Synchronous Replication provides those benefits with simple set up, one-click failover, plus all the operational and performance advantages of Tintri VM-aware Storage (VAS) for virtualized and cloud infrastructures.

Zero Data Loss DR for Mission Critical Applications

With Tintri, synchronous replication can be set up in minutes by an IT generalist and offers unmatched:


  • Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) as low as 30 seconds or less for planned and manual failovers

  • Support for inter-data center distances up to 100 km or round-trip time of 10ms across a metro cluster network

  • Support for synchronous and asynchronous replication on the same array simultaneously

  • Bi-directional synchronous replication, where an array can host primary VMs and replica (secondary) VMs for different groups of VMs simultaneously. In other words, a VMstore can be the primary and replication target at the same time.

Synchronous Replication


Does not require purchase and configuration of additional hardware such as FCIP converters or SAS switches, or specialized array models

Easy configuration and single-click failover enable IT generalists to manage disaster recovery and data protection for critical applications. All you need to do is right-click on “Failover” for the VM group.

Synchronous Replication


  • Real-time analytics for synchronous replication at the array and/or VM level with end-to-end visualization of latency—including the replication component. See figure below for latency breakdown of both primary and secondary storage, along with host and network.
  • Monitoring statistics at a granular level such that the percentage of time that the synchronously replicated datasets are “in sync” can be clearly displayed. This is crucial to capturing “out of sync” incidents quickly and accurately.

Intelligence Enables You to Do More with Less Effort

Protect your replicated data at rest transparently with optional SecureVM software. Develop advanced enterprise recovery workflows such as non-disruptive data center maintenance and data center migration with PowerShell or REST APIs and Tintri’s Automation Toolkit. Tintri Synchronous Replication allows you to protect more of your mission critical applications with more flexibility and less effort than ever before.
