Guaranteeing Performance for Your Virtualized Apps and Private Cloud
Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as
applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to
cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments
isn't just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for
individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of
VMs continues to go up in real time.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at
Tintri, will share success stories from a few folks who have already started
using VM-aware storage. By managing storage operations at the VM-level,
they've been able to solve their most vexing storage problems, and create
infrastructures that scale to meet the needs of their applications. Best of
all, they've got ... (more)
Server Virtualization has transformed the way we manage server workloads but
virtualization hypervisors were not the endgame of data center management.
What is the role of server virtualization and hypervisors in the new age of
cloud, containers, and more importantly, hyperconvergence?
I covered SAN technology in my last Infrastructure 101 article, so for today
I'm going to cover server virtualization and maybe delve into containers and
Server virtualization as we know it now is based on hypervisor technology. A
hypervisor is an operating system that allows sharing of phys... (more)
Web-scale IT is a pattern of global-class computing that delivers the
capabilities of large cloud service providers within an enterprise IT setting
by reimagining positions across several dimensions. The unprecedented
explosion of Big Data and cloud services is driving the development of new
storage architectures to store the information produced by this web-scale
trend. It is becoming increasingly clear that even a linear growth trajectory
for storage is insufficient to deliver the quantity of storage needed for
data produced by the Internet of Things. Current architectures have... (more)
In a series of articles, I am going to share my thoughts on the state of IT
infrastructure and how we've arrived with current architecture trends. The
topic today is SAN.
Storage Area Networking (SAN) is a technology that solved a real problem that
existed a couple decades ago. SANs have been a foundational piece of IT
infrastructure architecture for a long time and have helped drive major
innovations in storage. But how relevant are SANs today in the age of
software-defined datacenters? Let's talk about how we have arrived at modern
First, disk arrays w... (more)

The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in
enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and
collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for
long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch.
DevOps may be disruptive... (more)
SYS-CON Events announced today that Tintri Inc., a leading producer of
VM-aware storage (VAS) for virtualization and cloud environments, will
exhibit at the 19th International Cloud Expo, which will take place on
November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Tintri VM-aware storage is the simplest for virtualized applications and
cloud. Organizations including GE, Toyota, United Healthcare, NASA and 6 of
the Fortune 15 have said "No to LUNs." With Tintri they manage only virtual
machines, in a fraction of the footprint and at far lower cost than
