back to article Tintri gazes hungrily at Japan after nailing Fujitsu OEM deal

      Tintri is an interim solution

      Tintri very much looks like a short term tactical proposition filling a hole in vSphere.

      I much more see the market developing in a hybrid flash/disk direction all managed by the same storage tools. Fujitsu is known for that with their own ETERNUS DX line of storage systems. So don't count on an announcement for ETERNUS TR, ie. OEM Tintri, outside Japan.
