VM herder Tintri tries on Red Hat, plans support for Microsoft Hyper-V

Hybrid array upstart previously only supported VMWare

Remote control for virtualized desktops

Hybrid startup Tintri, whose hybrid arrays are VMware virtual machine-centric in their operation and management, now supports Red Hat's KVM as well.

Tintri OS 3.0 has the KVM support and customers can deploy multiple hypervisors on a single VMstore. This version also has RBAC and Active Directory and LDAP integration enabling access control and authentication per user for Tintri's VMstore array.

The release supports up to 2,000 VMs on a VMstore T650 array.

The company has also enhanced its Tintri Global Centre management tool. V 1.1 adds VMstore monitoring from a cluster-wide dashboard with drill down to individual VMstores. There is also data protection and disaster recovery monitoring with per-VM and per-VMstore replication monitoring and topology views.

Customers can deploy and manage up to "64,000 VMs spread across 32 geographically dispersed VMstore systems from a single Tintri Global Center 1.1 instance."

An Automation Toolkit, based on PowerShell, helps with the automation of virtualisation and cloud data management workflows with, Tintri says, "little to no knowledge of traditional storage constructs and commands" such as LUNS and volumes.

According to a Tintri blog, "Tintri support for Hyper-V is currently in technology preview and will be generally available in the 2nd half of 2014."

With Hyper-V support obviously close, Tintri will probably having the broadest VM-centric hypervisor support of any hybrid array vendor. Wonder if it has the idea of migrating VMs from one hypervisor to another on its roadmap? ®
