MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/26/13 -- Tintrí, Inc., the leading producer of VM-aware storage platforms, today announced a new reference architecture to deliver a high-performance, low-cost infrastructure for VMware Horizon View 5.2 that sets a new bar for both price and performance. Testing at VMware labs validated the reference architecture for 1,000 simultaneous VDI users at "Ultrabook" level performance from a single Tintrí storage appliance. The Tintrí results delivered high performance, while operating at a low cost. With no tuning or special configuration, the Tintrí storage platform went from power-on to storing the first VM in only eight minutes and 1,000 desktops were fully deployed in only one hour and two minutes.(1)
The reference architecture validation tests were conducted with a single Tintrí VMstore T540 and enough server and network infrastructure to support 1,000 concurrent desktops. Testing utilized the VMware Horizon View planner tool for simulated end-user desktop activity and yielded a Horizon View planner score indicative of what an end-user on a local "Ultrabook" would experience.
"VDI projects can become challenged when scaled up deployments do not meet performance expectations when using traditional storage," said Kieran Harty, Tintrí CEO. "Tintrí, with a purpose-built VM-aware file system, solves these issues in a storage platform that is simple to deploy, requires absolutely no tuning or special configuration and has been proven in testing and at customer sites to meet the performance needs for large-scale VDI deployments."
"We are pleased to be working with Tintrí to help deliver simplicity and ease of use to VMware® Horizon View environments," said Mason Uyeda, director, technical marketing, VMware. "Tintrí's reference architecture can provide virtual desktop scale and high performance that is predictable and linear at a very low cost per desktop."
Highlights of the Reference Architecture Testing
- Tintrí storage ready for first VM within eight minutes of power-on;
- No special tuning or configuration settings required for full reference architecture testing;
- New standard for VDI deployment:
- 1,000 VCAI clones were fully deployed in 1 hour, 2 minutes
- 1,000 VCAI clones recomposed in 1 hour, 56 minutes
- Full Tintrí support for VAAI and VCAI enables cloning to be offloaded to the Tintrí storage platform, yielding high-performance, space-efficient clones;
- Virtual desktop user experience equivalent to local "Ultrabook" level performance;
- Both desktop VMs and server VMs hosted on same Tintrí datastore.
Tintrí and VMware's joint customers have successfully deployed VMware Horizon View and Tintrí storage for their VDI projects. One customer, a large financial institution, is currently supporting a mix of 350 desktop and server VMs on a single Tintrí storage node, while eliminating storage-related performance problems that plagued earlier trials using legacy storage. Another customer, Swisslos Interkantonale Landeslotterie, the Swiss lottery operator, currently has more than 400 virtual desktops running on the joint Tintrí, VMware Horizon View solution. With the deployment of the Tintrí reference architecture for VMware Horizon View, these and other customers have seen improvements in end user desktop performance, reduced management overhead and a reduction in their total infrastructure costs.
"We chose Tintrí and VMware® Horizon View for our VDI deployment because of the exceptional desktop performance we could provide to all of our users at a very cost-effective price," said Ramon Garay, Manager IT Service Desk & Client Server at Swisslos Interkantonale Landeslotterie. "Not only are our users happy, but we've also reduced the amount of setup, tuning and ongoing management time required to keep the infrastructure running at peak performance."

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...

When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
