Tintri VMstore™ T5000 All-Flash Series Data Sheet

All-Flash VM-aware storage building block for scale-out

The Tintri VMstore T5000 All-Flash series is the first all-flash VM-aware storage (VAS) to offer up to 308TB for 5,000 virtual machines (VM) in two rack units. High density 3D NAND drives and multiple capacities with expansion options gives you the ultimate flexibility
in performance, capacity and price. Enabled by the Tintri scale-out platform, you can grow from a single two rack unit 17 TB all-flash system to 10 PB of all-flash in 1.5 racks, supporting up to 160,000 VMs. Tintri’s VM-aware storage delivers performance isolation and per-VM quality of service while guaranteeing high performance and low latency across the entire flash capacity. The T5000 series enables all storage action at the VM-level—manage, replicate, automate and analyze any (or every) VM to keep storage simple.

Tintri VMstore T5000 All-flash storage


  • Performance isolation. Eliminate noisy neighbor and I/O blender effects with per-VM performance lanes

  • Per VM QoS. Guarantee performance at the VM-level through quality of service (QoS) policies

  • Data reduction. Inline deduplication, compression and zero block optimization 



  • Real-time actionable analytics. See across storage, network and host on a per-VM basis

  • Predictive analytics. Profile application types, then model and forecast capacity and performance needs over the next 6 months

  • Concurrent multi-hypervisor support. Operate vSphere, Hyper-V, RHEV, XenServer and OpenStack on a single array

  • Per-VM data management. Manage snapshots, clones, replication and QoS policies on a per-VM level 



  • VM Scale-out. Optimize the distribution of VMs across pools of VMstores with Tintri Global Center Advanced

  • Choice. Choose from three different controller models each with three capacity points to balance capacity and performance needs on a single array. Start as small as 17 TB and scale to 10 PB or more

  • Expandability. Scale capacity with expansion options on select VMstore models

*All capacity values are based on Base 10 (i.e., 1 TB = 1,000,000,000,000 bytes) after double parity RAID-6, spare, and metadata overhead. Effective capacity is calculated after data reduction (assumes 5:1) using inline deduplication and compression but does not include thin provisioning. Data reduction rates will vary with workloads.
** Assumes minimum policy of 8 hourly snapshots, 7 daily snapshots, and 4 weekly snapshots. All snapshots are logically represented as full recoveries.
*** Scale capacity using expansion option
**** Requires additional license unless otherwise noted
***** Tintri Analytics requires an active Tintri maintenance contract.
