Tintri VMstore: Application-Aware Storage
By Tintri | 2/1/2015
Server virtualization brings tremendous value in terms of adding operational agility and significant cost savings through consolidation, increased utilization, and workload portability, but storage can be an inhibitor to realizing that value. Traditional storage systems were not designed to be shared between applications, and the gyrations required to do so, such as mapping LUNs, volumes, ports, and zones, introduce complexity without solving the entire storage challenge related to supporting virtual environments. This is because they cannot provide sufficient quality of service to ensure the right applications get the right amount of resources. What is needed is a solution that is application-aware in order to ensure application quality of service. That is the approach Tintri took with its VMstore.

Backup and Recovery Best Practices With Veeam Backup & Replication
By Tintri | 2/1/2015
Veeam Backup and Replication solution is designed for virtual machine DR. Tintri VMstores are designed from the ground-up for virtualization. These two solutions complement each other in terms of protecting a virtual data center. Tintri’s SnapVM, CloneVM, and ReplicateVM work hand-in-hand with Veeam’s Backup and Replication to provide a comprehensive data protection and disaster recovery solution to meet the needs of varied virtualized environments. Tintri’s ReplicateVM can also protect VMs and Veeam backup infrastructure VMs and repositories by replicating backup repository hosts to a separate Tintri VMstore efficiently.

Data warehouse optimization with Hadoop
By Cloudera | 31/10/2014
This whitepaper outlines new reference architecture for data warehouse optimisation to help organisations speed time to value, maximize productivity, lower costs and minimise risk. • Traditional data warehouse environments are overwhelmed by soaring volumes and varieties of data pouring in • An upgrade is not the most effective way to manage an excess of seldom-used data. To keep pace with exploding data volumes, the data warehouse itself needs to evolve. • One emerging strategy is data warehouse optimisation using Hadoop as an enterprise data hub to augment an existing warehouse infrastructure.
