This is a Press Release edited by StorageNewsletter.com on 2013.07.05
After initial concern about their existing, legacy storage system's inability
to ensure adequate performance for VDI, Enumclaw selected Tintri VM-aware
storage to support the deployment. According to Enumclaw, Tintri was chosen for
its ability to deliver 'ultra-book' performance, its
cost-effectiveness based on high VM density
and the ease of per-VM level management.
Enumclaw, which has over 4,200 students and faculty across eight separate
schools and support offices, recently initiated a VDI project to enable
a better overall end user experience at a modest cost. They evaluated ten
storage solutions, including legacy, and flash-based arrays, to support their
VDI project and determined Tintri to be the best, most
cost-effective fit for ensuring their requisite performance levels - while also
providing a more streamlined solution for managing virtualized
"Tintri has absolutely enabled us to
successfully deploy VDI, and do so in a cost-effective, easy-to-manage manner,"
said Chad Marlow, technology director, Enumclaw Public Schools. "In addition to supporting our needs for VDI,
a single Tintri system is more than capable of handling our virtualized server
workloads as well; we currently have over 90% of our virtualized infrastructure
running on Tintri, and plan to add the remainder in the near future. What's
more, their intuitive dashboard features - especially the ability to drill down
to individual VMs - has enabled my team and I to save valuable time in the
overall VM management process."
"As more and more organizations
shift to virtualization, there's an even greater need for a modern, VM-aware
approach to storage," said Geoff Stedman, VP marketing, Tintri.
"VDI introduces new performance
complexities that can't be met by legacy storage systems because they were not
built for virtualized infrastructures. Tintri VM-aware storage is specifically
designed to enable organizations to overcome these hurdles and achieve desired
levels of performance - without having to spend obscene amounts of money
