MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tintri, Inc., (NASDAQ: TNTR) a leading provider of enterprise cloud platforms, today announced an integration with Cisco UCS Director. Together, Tintri and Cisco allow customers to flexibly scale any element of their infrastructure and to apply automation to simplify management. Tintri’s plugin for Cisco UCS Director builds on a go-to-market collaboration between the companies that includes Cisco Level 1 support for joint Tintri and Cisco customers.
Tintri enterprise cloud platforms have been designed for management simplicity. In independent testing, The Evaluator Group [September 2016] noted that Tintri was the first storage ever tested to take literally zero time to provision and manage virtual machines. And Tintri’s PowerShell toolkit and REST APIs allow customers to automate quality of service, cloning, replication, snapshots and more.
UCS Director applies automation to provision, configure and secure resources across tenants and cloud environments. Tintri’s plugin for Cisco UCS Director allows customers to more fully realize the potential of Tintri’s differentiated architecture—unlike other storage plugins that require complex configuration, Tintri’s UCS Director integration presents simple configuration options and enables management at the virtual machine and vDisk level. And compared with a hyperconverged solution, Tintri and Cisco ease scale—allowing compute, network and storage to be scaled separately, and supporting multiple hypervisors and workloads on a single node for greater efficiency.
“Tintri and Cisco are already in joint use across many enterprises and cloud service providers. Our customers gain access to rich, real-time and predictive analytics and the tools to automate away management effort,” said Yael Zheng, chief marketing officer at Tintri. “Integration with UCS Director is symbolic of our strengthening collaboration with Cisco.”
“Companies that are serious about enterprise cloud need to consider Tintri and Cisco UCS Director,” said Erik Melander, EVP at Kovarus Solutions. “Our customers have used this combination to expand DevOps practices and apply automation to reduce management effort. Tintri and Cisco UCS Director help to make the value proposition of enterprise cloud real.”
Tintri’s plugin for Cisco UCS Director will be generally available in July 2017.
Tintri offers an enterprise cloud infrastructure built on a public-cloud like web services architecture and RESTful APIs. Organizations use Tintri all-flash storage with scale-out and automation as a foundation for their own clouds—to build agile development environments for cloud native applications and to run mission critical enterprise applications. Tintri enables users to guarantee the performance of their applications, automate common IT tasks to reduce operating expenses, troubleshoot across their infrastructure, and predict an organization’s needs to scale—the underpinnings of a modern data center. That’s why leading cloud service providers and enterprises, including Comcast, Chevron, NASA, Toyota, United Healthcare and 20% of the Fortune 100, trust Tintri with enterprise cloud.
