Today, I want to talk to you about how to provision exactly what you need for storage only when you need it. We've talked in previous videos about how Tintri Analytics can take three years of history in your environment and forecast out to 18 months what's needed, when to buy it, and how much to buy.
One of the other pieces that's really critical is how much you can grow by, so in remote offices or smaller deployments, people don't necessarily need to add an entire shelf every time that there's growth, but they may not be able to stick with what they've purchased initially either, so Tintri affords our customers the ability to grow by a single disk at a time. That means if you're growing more slowly, you can buy one disk. If the next quarter requires more growth, buy four more. We want to be able to say, "This is when we're going to run out of space," and Tintri Analytics addresses that very effectively, but then, we also want to allow you to grow at the rate and at the capacity that's suited for the use case, so that's where drive-by-drive growth comes in really handy.
