Enterprise Strategy Group Study: Tintri VM-aware Storage Massively Reduces Costs

Tintri released results from an Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) 2016 report that revealed Tintri all-flash storage delivers greater TCO, automation, and operational insight compared to all-flash storage arrays built on conventional architectures. Tintri all-flash storage customers achieve 74 percent Opex savings by simplifying management of virtualisation and enterprise cloud.

According to the ESG report, "Quantifying the Value of Tintri VM-aware All-Flash and Hybrid Storage Arrays,” analysed real-world implementations to determine that Tintri storage lowers operating expenses by up to 74 percent. Also, Tintri was shown to merge better with virtualised environments and offer better intelligence on operations and issues—additional benefits that could not be quantified, but that saved customer resources.

Aviv Kaufmann, Senior EST Lab Analyst said, "ESG research shows that return on investment (ROI) and reduction in operational expenditures are the most important considerations in justifying IT investments. Operating cost is also a reason why companies are considering a shift to public cloud. Our findings show that Tintri can drastically reduce much of the operational complexity and cost from an enterprise cloud.”

Based on ESG’s study, an organisation can save $284,000 over three years by utilising a single Tintri T5000 all-flash storage array instead of another next-generation, LUN-centric, all-flash storage array. These savings can help generate an ROI of 196 percent with a payback period of 12 months. That cost saving is a reason why big enterprises trust Tintri with their virtual servers, desktops and databases. Organisations interested to calculate potential savings can access a calculator created by ESG for that very purpose, available by contacting Tintri.

The ESG report attributed the Opex savings to Tintri’s ability to autonomously manage storage performance and to take all actions—replication, cloning, QoS and more—at the virtual machine level. Tintri also enables customers to view latency across their infrastructure, spanning compute, network and storage, so troubleshooting involves no guesswork and takes seconds. Most clients told ESG they need less than one hour per week to manage, control and maintain their Tintri storage environments. 

Chuck Dubuque, Vice President of Product Marketing for Tintri concluded, “As IT leaders reallocate their budgets and resources from traditional architectures to the cloud, they require trusted solutions that can guarantee performance for virtualised applications with the greatest possible efficiencies. ESG’s report confirms that our customers continue to build cloud infrastructures with Tintri because they can achieve the scale and agility of an Amazon-like cloud with the control and automation of an enterprise cloud platform.”
