Cache Hits: Tintri is on it’s death bed.

As I write this, Tintri (NASDAQ: TNTR) is trading at .28 a share and falling.  It’s speculated that the storage company will declare bankruptcy with no possible acquisition in sight.

Tintri’s claim to fame is how easy it can be integrated into VMware environments and allowing for VM level storage management.  While novel when it first arrived on the scene, since vSphere 6 and the introduction of Virtual Volumes, the company lost what made it unique.

Although it could be possible another company can swoop in and acquire the company for the intellectual property they have at the last moment.  Then again, it may be worth having a serious conversation on alternatives if the inevitable happens and if you’re a customer, you’re left with a major piece of infrastructure with no support.
