Founded in 2006, Atlantis Computing set out to change how VMs consume storage to reduce deployment risks, increase performance and scalability, and significantly lower costs while continuing to provide the high availability and disaster recovery enterprises need in their virtual environments. The first Atlantis ILIO products shipped in 2009, supporting all major server hypervisors running VDI platform solutions from Citrix, Microsoft, and VMware.
Atlantis ILIO In-Memory Storage technology deploys as a dedicated VM in each host, presenting what looks like a standard datastore that all VMs on that host use. A combination of storage optimization technologies process all IO in real time to reduce storage capacity requirements by up to 95% and minimize IO requirements by up to 100x. This makes it feasible to use server RAM as primary storage for VMs at economically compelling densities. The bottom line is that all Atlantis solutions powered by this patent-pending technology handle all VM IO at server RAM speeds, which reduces network and storage infrastructure that lower costs by up to 80%.
We deliver storage optimization solutions for virtual environments to our customers through a variety of channels, including both direct and indirect. Our technology is applicable across all industries that are using virtual computing solutions. We offer reliable, enterprise-class products that deploy transparently into existing virtual environments, preserving existing processes and administrative expertise. And we back those products with comprehensive, 7x24 service worldwide.
Atlantis Computing has met with considerable success in the enterprise space. We have over 300 customers to date, including such bellwether names as JPMorgan Chase, the US Army, the US Navy, Glasshouse Technologies, Colt Technology Services, and many others. One of the largest VDI deployments in the world at JPMorgan Chase has 100,000 desktops and Atlantis Computing In-Memory Storage technology at the core. Our proven VDI expertise has helped small and large customers alike turn their virtual desktop projects into economically compelling solutions, and we will shortly be taking these technologies into the virtual server space.
When integrated into virtual computing solutions, our technology reduces the required networking and storage infrastructure by up to 95%, minimizing power, floor space and secondary storage requirements, simplifying high availability and disaster recovery configurations, and significantly increasing the VM density that data center racks can support - all while providing performance that is up to 10x faster than conventional storage solutions.
We expect this technology and the products based on it to have a major impact on virtual data centers now and in the future.
