Tintri & VVOL

Nobody wants to manage storage LUNs and volumes any more

Here at Tintri, we’ve been building VM-aware storage (VAS) from our inception in 2008—VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes (VVOL) validates our mission. LUNs and volumes made sense when workloads were physical, but are irrelevant in today's highly virtualized data center. Tintri is designed for virtualized applications and cloud... free of LUNs, volumes and other remnants of outdated storage. More than a few legacy providers have tried to jump on the bandwagon with VVOL support, but that doesn't mean you'll be able to use their products the way you would use Tintri. That's why it's important that you understand what you can expect from VVOL and who can really deliver.

Explore the 7 Myths, the 5 Ws and the Will vs. Won't of VVol via the short, simple documents below. You'll be an expert in no time.

The Register“If you want VVol-like functionality for Hyper-V and Linux KVM server virtualization environments – tough luck – unless [your] storage array vendor’s … name rhymes with wintry.”
