Government agencies have embraced virtualization-more than 75% of applications are now virtualized. But agency data centers rely on outdated storage that was built for physical (not virtual) workloads. To successfully reduce data center footprint and costs, government agencies must better support their virtualization vision.
Enter Tintri VMStoreTM-the only storage specifically designed to store virtualized workloads.
In FY15, the US government will spend $6B on storage and related services. Based on the savings we are already generating for numerous agencies, Tintri could save the government $1.5B per year on storage costs. That's because Tintri VM-aware storage directly addresses the government's stated technology initiatives:
- Virtualization. Tintri simply stores virtual workloads. Every other storage provider is built on a foundation of LUNs and volumes-remnants of physical-first storage. Tintri is built ground-up for virtualization; all storage actions are centered on individual virtual machines for unmatched visibility and control.
- Cloud computing. Tintri is the backbone of private clouds at government agencies and Fortune 100 companies. That's because Tintri is (a) built specifically for virtualized workloads, and (b) remarkably simple to operate. You can have your private cloud storage installed and configured in less than half an hour, and managed in minutes a day without a storage PhD.
- Data center consolidation. There's serendipity here. The government has virtualized 75% of its workloads, and Tintri stores VMs 4x-to-10x more densely than any other storage provider. If government agencies want to consolidate data centers, Tintri will have an immediate impact.
Tintri has already received numerous certifications, including 508 Compliance (American Disability Act), Trade Agreement Act (TAA), Foreign Ownership, Control or Influence (FOCI), Common Criteria and Product Certification. And many government agencies trust their virtualized workloads to Tintri:
Tintri partners closely with Carahsoft to help the US government enable virtualization and private cloud. Together we are working to reduce data centers, embrace cloud computing and save money.
Carahsoft is the trusted government IT solutions provider and top-ranked General Services Administration (GSA) schedule contract holder. Carahsoft serves as master GSA schedule holder for all Tintri products.
