Tintri VMstore Wish List

For the past two years, Tintri’s VMstore product has been my preferred VMware storage solution.

The most complicated portion of the installation of the product is the rail kit. It took me just a couple of installations to add a hammer to my tool bag in order to bang the rails into place. The ability to provide 10,000’s of IOPS and TB’s to a VMware environment in minutes is fantastic.

But there have been two items on my wish list for basically two years.

The first is too expand usability of VMstore to include Microsoft Hyper-V. More and more organizations are evaluating or adopting a multi-vendor virtualization environment. The VMstore is a NFS solution and I would like SMB 3.0 services added to provide services to the Microsoft virtualization platform.

The second item on my list is to expand the inline deduplication to the spinning disks. Inline deduplication is used for the flash storage by extending this feature to the SATA drives this will allow more VM’s per appliance.

I keep hearing these are in the roadmap but it still has not made it to market. And so I wait…
