Tintri on Monday said that it will further integrate with VMware applications to enable software defined storage.The company released the Tintri management pack for VMware's vRealize Operations, which was formerly called vCloud Operations. The aim is to allow joint customers to monitor Tintri's virtual storage systems from VMware's management console.
Tintri is demonstrating its tools at VMware's partner conference in San Francisco this week.
VMware's vRealize Operations software is designed to manage infrastructure and monitor the company's vSphere and vCloud suites. Tintri's management pack provides virtual machine storage stats, trends and analytics to troubleshoot private clouds.
Software defined storage players have rushed to partner with VMware since it is dominant in enterprise data centers. Tintri rival Nutanix is also a VMware partner.
Tintri's Chuck Dubuque, senior director of product and solutions marketing, said the company has been a design partner with VMware for years and the two companies have worked closely to integrate application programming interfaces. However, Tintri is also going to support other hypervisors from Red Hat and Microsoft.
Although VMware has expanded from server virtualization to networking and likely storage at some point, Dubuque didn't see the company as a potential rival.
