You’ve embraced virtualization, and now you need storage to help you fully realize your data center IT and cloud vision. Tintri is the storage standard for virtualized enterprises and cloud—built from the ground-up to let you manage what matters to your business: applications.
Conventional storage was built on decades-old architecture, when workloads were physical and LUNs ruled. Today, those relics cost IT professionals both time and money. Choose Tintri to get performance, manageability and value of VM-Aware Storage from either all-flash or hybrid-flash systems.
The Tintri Management Pack for vRealize Operations (vROps) provides VM-level storage statistics, trending and insight that makes managing and troubleshooting performance issue in virtualized environments and private cloud deployments a breeze in vROps console itself. Tintri supports vCloud Operations (vCOPs) 5.8 as well as vROPs 6.0 and 6.1
Instantly Diagnose VM Performance Issues: Tintri simplifies performance bottleneck troubleshooting by providing instant visibility from the host, network and storage. Customers can manage VMstores directly or connect to Tintri Global Center to more easily manage multiple VMstores.

Quickly Understand Storage Details at the VM Level: Tintri enables operators to quickly verify whether applications and VMs are protected according to SLAs for recovery point objectives. With per-VM level illustration of snapshot metrics, operations teams can quickly verify whether applications are over/under protected.
Gain Visibility into Key Performance Indicators for Replication: Tintri exposes replication information to vROps administrators which allows them to validate that both VM and application data are efficiently replicated to an alternate VMstore. Tintri replication helps deliver per-VM WAN-efficient replication, reducing storage and network consumption by minimizing redundant data movement.
See & Understand Virtual Machines Better With VMstore Dashboards: Tintri integration with vRealize Operations Suite (vROps) delivers performance, capacity, and trending metrics of Tintri VMstore into a common cloud management platform enabling operations teams to work more productively with both applications and infrastructure teams. The Tintri vROps management pack provides two monitoring dashboards for overall environment overview and VM details. Easy to consume storage information for cloud operations teams with one-to-one mapping of storage to individual VMs and pre-configured dashboards help identify VMs with the most changes in performance or capacity utilization. Performance metrics such as performance reserves, available capacity, and IOPS can be easily viewed.

Leverage vROps Badges With Tintri Insight: Tintri leverages the vROps badges which allows operations teams to setup flags on insights such as latency, throughput, performance reserve, storage details such as capacity, VM count, and hardware details such as error messages and failed components.
View Relevant Trending Activity: With vROPs, the user can set up alerts on VM activity. Tintri already comes prepopulated with 10 custom alerts and users can develop their own alerts too, which is in addition to the alerts available in VMstores and TGC. These alerts make it easy for you to understand which VMs are consuming the most storage and I/O resources because it maps storage directly to individual VMs, regardless of where the VM lives. Tintri VMstore visibility and vRealize trending combined enable you to alert application, storage, or network teams of unusual activity with concrete information that lets them take action quickly.
Insight in Minutes: Just like Tintri storage, the vROps Management Pack can be installed and managed in minutes by any administrator who has credential access to a VMstore appliance.
Relevant Inventory Summary: Operations teams can view summary VMstore characteristics such as VMstore OS version, serial number, IP address, model number, up-time, and top changes.
Custom Alerts: There are 10 default alerts. The customer can customize additional alerts as needed.
TGC Support: Manage multiple VMstores by connecting to them individually or through TGC.
“We really like the fact that it only has 2 tabs (instead of a multitude without getting any real distinctive information) and the fact that you can create reports with vRealize to see what is going on in there. It even shows VMDK's used by Appvolumes."

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.
