In this exclusive VMblog video interview as part of our VMware Explore US 2023 coverage, we speak with Phil Trickovic, SVP, Revenue at Tintri, a DDN subsidiary and a leading provider of VM-aware, AI-powered data management solutions.

Watch as we learn more about Tintri and their technology. The company is delivering purpose-built solutions to store and manage virtual machines in enterprise data centers.
