BlueHat Cyber, a Silicon Sky Company, Simplifies Storage Management and Improves I/O and Replication across Data Centres with Tintri VMstore

Tintri®, a DDN® subsidiary and the leading provider of VM-aware AI-powered data management solutions, today announced BlueHat Cyber, an innovative and forward-thinking IT infrastructure and managed security services provider, implemented Tintri VMstore™ solutions as the backbone of its Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) business. Tintri technology allows BlueHat Cyber to offload time-consuming administrative storage tasks and replicate across data centres so it can focus on providing its clients with premium service.

BlueHat Cyber, a Silicon Sky company, offers a comprehensive cyber security portfolio and assists in planning, design, integration, operation, and optimisation of organisations’ IT security requirements. With a broad range of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) offerings specialising in compute, network, storage, security, backup and disaster recovery, BlueHat Cyber has enterprise-grade Managed Cloud Platforms co-located in multiple carrier neutral data centres across the US.

BlueHat Cyber needed a solution to simplify storage management, improve I/O and replicate workloads across multiple data centres, and chose Tintri VMstore as the solution for its proven benefits with fast asynchronous replication, increased uptime and performance, and ‘set it and forget it’ operations. Today, BlueHat Cyber’s US Virtual Data Centre is running on 100% Tintri VM-aware technology because it is a proven purpose-built solution to store and manage virtualised workloads in enterprise data centres.

“We went from spending eight to 10 hours a week managing storage to maybe taking a glance at it once in a blue moon. We basically set it and forget it. When looking at a new client proposal, we consider if we have the capacity to take it on, but we never have to think about I/O performance, regardless of how intense the workload,” says Tim Averill, CTO, BlueHat Cyber.

Averill notes, “With Tintri’s replication technology, I was able to failover an entire data centre in less than six hours by myself. In fact, I liked the technology so much that we became a reseller partner for both on-premise and cloud services. We dropped all our other storage vendors and started selling Tintri exclusively.”

“The key to a simple and successful hybrid cloud deployment is the use of best-of-breed technologies and industry best practices along with the support from an experienced MSP partner who can make the most cost-effective and future-proof recommendations, allowing your infrastructure to grow with your business,” said Brock Mowry, CTO, Tintri. “We are proud to see Tintri VMstore deliver on simplified and worry-free data management as it has proven to do for BlueHat Cyber.”
