Enterprise data storage ‘business as usual’ with Tintri and Networks Unlimited
JOHANNESBURG – May 26, 2020 – As the world grapples with a totally different business dynamic in the wake of the global lockdowns currently in place, the enterprise storage industry must continue showcasing the continuous innovation that enables compelling solutions for its clients. This, however, is not so easy for all players in the current economic downturn.
This is according to a recent blog entry by Tintri, which provides AI-enabled intelligent infrastructure, and partners in South Africa with value-added distributor Networks Unlimited Africa.
According to the blog, “Innovation and continuous investment therein are key drivers that enable compelling solutions to reach customers’ data centres. But in these extraordinary times business cannot operate as usual, and some vendors are finding their ability to maintain critical investment in innovation and their longevity at risk.”
Reassuringly, Tintri and its parent company, DDN, are in a strong financial position at this time: “…protecting your business data and driving operational simplicity is critical at any time, and is especially true in extraordinary times.”
Tintri’s approach is based on four key operating principles:
- Performance should be consistent, even if the hardware experiences a failure.
- Every virtual machine (VM) should experience low latency, regardless of its workload profile and whether that changes over time.
- If there is a condition that impedes performance, intelligent infrastructure should give you visibility into what is causing the condition.
- Achieving these benefits should not require storage domain expertise.
Marcel Fouché, Networking and Storage General Manager at Networks Unlimited Africa, clarifies, “Tintri is in a strong position to maintain its provision of predictable and reliable services to support the technology needs of its clients. Its data management and Intelligent Infrastructure storage solutions allow organisations to protect their business data and continue driving operational simplicity, which is critical at any time, but even more so during times of economic and operational stress.”
