Many organizations are still relying on general-purpose storage systems and networks for their virtualized environments. Unfortunately, there is a significant mismatch between the capabilities of traditional network and storage platforms and the specialized demands of virtualization.
Tintri Application Aware storage and Arista’s advanced Ethernet switch technology are designed for virtualized environments. The combined Tintri and Arista solution enables enterprise IT teams to efficiently deploy, manage, and troubleshoot their virtual infrastructure – while keeping total costs under control.
Server virtualization greatly simplifies the management of the enterprise’s compute infrastructure through the use of virtual machines (VMs), but it makes network and storage management much more complex. With traditional storage and networking solutions, IT admins must spend excessive amounts of time configuring and managing the storage and networking infrastructure to meet the unique requirements of server virtualization.
Enterprises now need storage and networking solutions that are designed for virtualization – as opposed to forcing their older legacy technologies to adapt to the increased demands of virtualized environments.
Tintri Application Aware StorageTM is an always-optimized storage platform that is designed to address the challenges of using general-purpose storage in virtualized environments. Built using the industry’s first and leading Application Aware Storage Architecture, Tintri VMstoreTM enables enterprises to easily and cost-effectively regain control of their IT environments and achieve 100% virtualization.
Tintri features that enhance the efficiency and performance of server virtualization include:
Sever virtualization has created the demand for a new class of networked storage that addresses the increased need for higher performance, scalability, and agility while controlling costs. Arista Networks delivers a portfolio of 1/10/40 and 100 GbE capable products that are redefining network architectures – bringing extensibility to networking and dramatically improving the price/performance of virtualized networks.
Arista Networks features that improve the success of virtualization initiatives include:
Tintri and Arista are now providing award-winning storage and networking solutions that are designed for virtualization, not forced to step up to the increased demands of virtualized environments. Tintri and Arista both start with the premise that the Virtual Machine (VM) is the fundamental building block of the next generation data center. By allowing visibility and control at the VM level, Tintri and Arista remove multiple levels of complexity and cost allowing for better performance, increased visibility, greater management control, easier setup and simplified troubleshooting.
Your apps were built to take advantage of virtualization; you’d be crazy not to build out your data center with storage and networking based on the same premise.
Application Aware network and storage solutions from Arista and Tintri are now providing enterprises with unmatched scalability, flexibility, and automation advantages for their virtualized environments. Whether you are just getting started with virtualization – or are expanding virtualization to your desktops and business critical applications − Tintri and Arista Networks will ensure your virtualization initiatives are simple, predictable, powerful, successful and cost-effective.
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.
