If you’re a vExpert, you might know that Tintri have frequently (and very kindly) provided polo shirts to vExperts. You’re also probably aware that Tintri do a lot more than just free shirts for community vnerds. They also have a bit to do with VM-aware storage. To that end, Tintri recently announced the release of the Tintri VMstoreTM T5040, a new entry-level all-flash storage array.
The data sheet can be found here, but in a nutshell, the specs of the T5040 are as follows:
- OS 4.1 or higher
- 1,500 VMs (max)
- 18TB effective capacity
- 5.76TB RAW Flash capacity
- 4 10GbE Network ports
- 2RU (same as the T5080 and T5060)
- 455W / 1550BTU (slightly less than the T5080 and T5060)
Additional software includes:
As well as this, Tintri will be hosting a webinar on December 10, 2015 previewing Tintri Analytics with predictive analytics capabilities. According to Tintri, “Tintri Analytics will build on this same native VM-level metadata to be the only solution in the market to leverage the VM Aware Storage insights to provide a realistic profile of your VMs and applications to model growth of applications and additional need for capacity and performance”.
The Tintri VMstore T5040 and Tintri OS 4.1 will be generally available in December 2015. The Tintri VMstore T5040 is available immediately for ordering worldwide. Tintri OS 4.1 will be available as a free upgrade to all Tintri VMstore customers with a current support contract. You can read more about it at The Register and at StorageReview.com.
