SEGA Games Implements Tintri Enterprise Cloud Technology to Maintain Application Performance

Grazed from Tintri and SEGA

SEGA Games Co., Ltd. has significantly improved the stability, availability and manageability of its IT infrastructure by implementing enterprise cloud technology from Tintri, Inc. Tintri has enabled SEGA Games to cure a persistent conventional storage problem that left Sega Games’ IT team unable to monitor and control resources consumed by Virtual Machines (VMs). In addition, the time spent by the SEGA Games infrastructure team on storage operations has been reduced significantly.
 
With more than half of SEGA Games’ physical servers used to host virtualization environments, where 2,000-3,000 VMs are running, Quality of Service (QoS) is vital to infrastructure stability. Previously, VMs consuming lots of storage I/O resources – or ‘Monster VMs’ – were affecting overall performance of other VMs using the same storage.
