Before

Objective:

Provide students and faculty with remote access to campus labs and applications.

Problem:

“Our EMC arrays could not deliver the IOPS needed for our 400 virtual desktops and 100 servers. We tried to fix the deficiency by purchasing a Dell EqualLogic system… but it still wasn’t fast enough for VMware.” 

Other Solutions Studied:

  • Dell
  • Nimble Storage
  • Pure Storage

Environment

  • VMware vSphere
  • VMware Horizon (with View)

VM Profile

  • SAS, SAP, REDCap, SQL, Oracle, Teradici Console, Business Objects, Mediasite, Bitdefender, Digital Surveillance

Tintri

  • 2x Tintri VMstores

After

Install:

“It took me longer to put the rails on the rack than to hook up and configure Tintri… 15 or 20 minutes max.”

Time to Add a New VM:

  • Conventional Storage: > 30 min.
  • Tintri VMstore: < 3 seconds

     

Scale:

Growing to 2,000+ virtual desktops on a single VMstore

Bottom Line:

“Tintri is the only game in town. The only storage designed for the demands of virtualized environments.”
