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.

@ThingsExpo Stories
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...
