Today, I want to talk a little bit about how to safely provide VM lifecycle management to non-administrators in your environment.
Tintri does an incredible job of making everything available at a VM level, but it's no good to make it simple if we don't provide better access to that simplicity, so using a vSphere plugin, for example, we can provide access to lifecycle management functionality on an individual VM. That could be restoring a file from a snapshot, restoring an individual disk, it can be restoring an entire VM, taking a snapshot on the array, cloning that VM. Any of those activities that a lot of times generate tickets for the administrative team can now be done with permissions that are at the same level as vSphere is using to allow access to, say for example, dev resources. Developers already have access to the VMs. Let them do things to the VMs on a storage level safely and efficiently, and in a way that's really easy for them by using the Tintri plugin.
