Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI Selected as Product of the Year Finalist by Storage Magazine and SearchStorage.com

Revolutionary Software Product Uses Server RAM as Primary Storage in Virtualized Data Centers

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 -- Atlantis Computing™, the award-winning leader in data center storage optimization solutions, today announced that Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI has been selected as one of eleven 2012 Product of the Year finalists in the Enterprise Storage System Software category by Storage magazine and SearchStorage.com: http://searchvirtualstorage.techtarget.com/feature/Storage-system-software-2012-Products-of-the-Year-finalists.

The Enterprise Storage System Software category covers file systems, volume management, storage virtualization software, security software, storage optimization applications and data reduction. The editors selected the finalists based on their innovation, performance, ease of manageability, functionality and value.

This is the latest in the series of accolades for Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI. In the last six months:

  • Atlantis Computing won the "Best of VMworld 2012" award for Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI in the desktop virtualization category at VMworld 2012 U.S.
  • Colt Technology Services won the "Best of VMworld 2012" Europe award for its Agilisys Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) project deployed with Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI.
  • Atlantis Computing won the "Citrix Ready® Best of Synergy" award in the desktop category at Citrix Synergy 2012.

This marks the first time that a product has won both "Best of VMworld" awards and the "Best of Citrix Synergy" award and been named a "Storage Product of the Year" finalist.

"We are honored for Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI to be named a Product of the Year finalist," said Bernard Harguindeguy, president and CEO of Atlantis Computing. "All the recent awards are the result of our close working collaboration with our enterprise and government customers to solve real-world deployment problems in virtualized data centers."

Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI is the only solution in the industry to enable stateless Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) deployments without the need for virtual desktop storage -- which traditionally represents 40% to 60% of the total cost of a VDI deployment. Atlantis ILIO uses local server RAM as the only storage for virtual desktops, eliminating storage traffic and significantly simplifying deployment architectures. SSDs, SSD arrays and traditional SAS and SATA drives based storage are completely eliminated, greatly reducing CAPEX as well as all storage-related OPEX including power, cooling and the cost of maintaining and repairing failed devices.

Atlantis ILIO automates all deployment phases including the storage sizing which traditionally represents one of the biggest deployment risks -- without storage sizing, deploying stateless desktops has never been so simple. Atlantis ILIO also automates its installation, configuration and data store creation for all virtual desktops -- multiple racks of servers can be deployed in hours. Traditional tools from Citrix and VMware can be used to finalize provisioning.

The “Digital Era” is forcing us to engage with new methods to build, operate and maintain applications. This transformation also implies an evolution to more and more intelligent applications to better engage with the customers, while creating significant market differentiators. In both cases, the cloud has become a key enabler to embrace this digital revolution. So, moving to the cloud is no longer the question; the new questions are HOW and WHEN. To make this equation even more complex, most ...
"This week we're really focusing on scalability, asset preservation and how do you back up to the cloud and in the cloud with object storage, which is really a new way of attacking dealing with your file, your blocked data, where you put it and how you access it," stated Jeff Greenwald, Senior Director of Market Development at HGST, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate. And the management is like herding cats (overseeing capacity, rebuilds, migrations, and degraded performance). In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing for the HGST Cloud Infrastructure Business Unit, discussed how a new approach is neces...

As ridesharing competitors and enhanced services increase, notable changes are occurring in the transportation model. Despite the cost-effective means and flexibility of ridesharing, both drivers and users will need to be aware of the connected environment and how it will impact the ridesharing experience.

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
