Managing database storage is its own ball of wax. The lack of visibility into storage makes things challenging to say the least. Tintri is looking to address this with similar efficient and granular storage management that it provides for VM level storage.

In fact, Tintri SQL Integrated Storage is built on the company’s Tintri VMstore Intelligent Infrastructure platform. The new storage solution provides integration, analytics, autonomous management, and data protection at the individual database level. Tintri SQL Integrated Storage gives DBAs visibility and actionable insights across the SQL Server database infrastructure stack from a single view making it easier to use and driving higher efficiencies.

Tintri SQL Integrated Storage key capabilities include:

  • Unparalleled Visibility – Combines broad visibility across the database infrastructure stack with granular performance and capacity metrics and visualization, including per-database latency, IOPs, throughput and space usage. Enables real-time identification of database inventory and outliers to accelerate problem resolution and address database sprawl.
  • Self-Service Empowerment – Autonomous operations and simplified database-level management enable DBA self-sufficiency and eliminate the need for deep storage expertise. Eliminates help desk tickets, improves operational efficiency and enables storage and database experts to focus on more strategic activities.
  • Predictable Performance and Auto Quality of Service (QoS) – Isolates each database from one another and from other workloads to ensure predictable I/O and consistent user experience. Dynamically adjusts resources and auto-tunes databases as I/O requirements change, maintaining sub-millisecond latency for each database. Enables rapid, non-disruptive cloning of production databases to offload the performance impact of maintenance and reporting operations.
  • Effortless, Non-Disruptive Data Protection – Simplifies data protection with flexible policy-based snapshot copies for individual databases or groups of databases. Instant, zero-stun snapshots have no performance impact on production databases or users. Databases can also be recovered individually, within seconds.
  • Fast, Cost-Efficient Development – Accelerates development cycles with instant database-level clones that incur zero performance impact and consume zero space upon creation. Simplifies test cycles by refreshing databases in seconds, compared to hours when using backup and restore methods.  Enables each developer to have a dedicated database sandbox, enabling more productive parallel development workflows.
  • Predictive Analytics and Planning – Leverages machine-learning and three years of historical data to accurately predict future capacity and performance requirements up to 18 months ahead. Utilizes sophisticated “what-if” analysis and scenarios to convey the performance and capacity impact of additional SQL Servers and avoid over- and underprovisioning resources.
