back to article Tintri’s funding reaches $260m, but is it ready to take on EMC?

Tintri, the hybrid array start-up, has been give a whopping $125m funding boost to carry on growing the company and (hopefully) take even bigger bites out of EMC, IBM and NetApp customer bases.

    "While this carries on, the HCIA and hybrid newbies can each grow individually without affecting the others. Their VCS are getting more and more excited about the prospects of great golden exits funded by product sales revenue stolen from deaf, dumb and blind stricken storage beasts like EMC, IBM and NetApp."

    I'd suggest it's quite strange that Tintri didn't announce their valuation as part of this latest round of funding... Funnily enough, Tegile did the same on their latest round. Most likely because the dollar valuation after the funding round doesn't make for good reading, and certainly not a 'billion dollar unicorn' start up.

    Supporting quote:

    "Klein would not comment on whether the company is a unicorn or “sub-unicorn,” aka whether it’s valued at $1 billion or just under $1 billion, but he did claim triple revenue growth year over year. He did not provide revenue numbers.”

    Sell out

    Tintri has great tech but missed the boat on marketing and widespread market adoption. So, they should call it a day and sell the company versus prolonging the inevitable..
