Top 10 Reasons to Deploy Tintri for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

1. Simple deployment 

Packaged as a hardware appliance, Tintri VMstore™ goes from box to rack and running VMs in a matter of minutes. There is no complicated configuration: assign an IP address, connect your virtualization management tools and begin migrating or deploying VMs. 

2. Intuitive administration 

Tintri VMstore is built on an application-aware storage architecture and allows administrators to increase productivity by directly working with vDisks and VMs. There is no RAID, LUN or volume configuration required with Tintri. 

3. QoS with no manual tuning 

Tintri VMstore has the intelligence to automatically deliver the quality of service applications need without any manual tuning or policy management. Your applications receive the best performance right out of the box. This means that you can safely mix your virtual desktops with your server applications and cloud workloads on the same VMstore with no performance issues. 

4. Industry-best virtual desktop density 

With its unique FlashFirst™ design, a single Tintri VMstore supports up to 2,000 virtual desktops with high performance and consistent sub-millisecond latency. This results in the industry’s best virtual desktop storage density and lowest cost per virtual desktop. 

5. Performance for all workloads 

Tintri VMstore eliminates the “noisy neighbor” problem seen with other storage with transparent VM-level performance allocation. Tintri gives each VM its own IO “lane” so your VDI environment benefits from optimized performance without complex policies or manual tuning. Whether you start with VDI and add server workloads, or start with server virtualization and want to add VDI and cloud, Tintri guarantees performance to all your VMs regardless of use case. 

6. “Ultrabook” performance 

Tintri VMstore enables you to deliver VDI performance that exceeds traditional storage. Tintri delivers desktop performance and user responsiveness that rivals high-end SSD-based laptops, all without special performance tuning. 

7. Make cloning and deploying desktop VMs a breeze 

Tintri VMstore can instantly provision high-performing and space-efficient clones of individual desktop VMs. Per-VM- cloning along with features such as auto-alignment and performance isolation makes VDI and virtualized dev/test a simple, risk-free reality. Need to roll out a new operating system? No problem. Deploy hundreds or thousands of VMs quickly and easily with extreme space efficiency. 

8. Full support for VMware Horizon View and Citrix XenDesktop 

The Tintri VMstore has undergone rigorous testing to ensure comprehensive support for major VDI platforms. Tintri is a VMware Ready partner for VMware Horizon View and a Citrix Ready Partner for Citrix XenDesktop. On the VMware platform, Tintri supports VMware View and VMware Horizon, with full support for VMware View Compose Array Integration (VCAI). On the Citrix platform, Tintri supports Citrix XenDesktop running on VMware vSphere, and takes advantage of Citrix Machine Creation Services (MCS) and Provisioning Services (PVS). 

9. Plug & play scalability 

With Tintri, scaling to support thousands of desktop VMs is easy and cost-effective—just add more VMstores. With Tintri Global Center™ (licensed separately), you can monitor and manage up to 32 VMstores and up to 64,000 virtual machines from a single interactive web console, making scaling storage for virtualization and private cloud simple and efficient. 

10. Lower capital and operational costs 

Tintri is the leading next-generation storage platform for a reason: Tintri is fundamentally changing the economics of storage for virtual environments. With industry-leading VM density and data management, Tintri delivers the best cost per virtual desktopof any storage platform. Tintri’s performance supports the highest number of VMs in the smallest form factor, saving both capital and operating costs. Tintri’s manageability features mean fewer administrators can manage more virtual desktops.
