Flashy upstart Tintri says its customers can run servers with more VMs using its storage instead of NetApp - and it's putting its money where its mouth is.

The startup claims VMware-using customers can "cut their storage capacity and rackspace requirements by 50per cent or more" by moving from NetApp FAS storage arrays to its own hybrid flash+disk arrays.

Specifically, Tintri says its "Virtualize More with 50% Less" program features:

You can find out more about the program here (pdf). There are various deployment requirements, some listed below:

There are others, including Tintri Best Practices requirements. They're all specified in the PDF.

If customers find that Tintri's claims are untrue then Tintri will "provide the necessary professional services and, if needed, provide additional storage to meet the workload requirement limited to the extent defined in the Program."

So, NetApp-using masses, consider the mighty Tintri VMStore and tremble in awe. ®
