Through our exclusive relationships with select quarries and suppliers, customers will discover stunning surfaces they won't find anywhere else on Earth.

We received an Atlantis HyperScale (SuperMicro) appliance from Atlantis and within hours were up and running with a fully functional storage, network and compute infrastructure. The whole process is incredibly streamlined compared to the traditional approach of building up dedicated storage, computer, and hypervisor environments and then connecting the separate pieces together. With HyperScale we simply had to power on each node, answer a few questions and before our eyes the whole environment was built. The end result was a fully integrated infrastructure with stellar all-flash performance," said Chris Murray, Director of Information Technology, Arizona Tile. "The Atlantis in-memory data reduction and IO acceleration technology from Atlantis yields incredible I/O speeds and actually reduces the amount of data saved down to the flash. We calculated that we could replace all of our racks of gear with just a few of these systems. It is mind-blowing to be able to bring up such a leading edge environment so quickly and so easily. The IT department is excited about the performance, form factor and ease of use; while the business is intrigued with the possibility of lowering the cost of co-location and IT services while improving the end-user and customer experience.

The Epiphany School of Global Studies, anchored in the Judeo-Christian commandment to Love God and Your Neighbor as Yourself, is a rigorous college-preparatory and globally-focused school where dynamic and innovative learning is stretched beyond the classroom walls, emphasizing the knowledge, skills, creativity, adaptability, curiosity, and international experiences students will need to flourish in an increasingly globalized 21st century—and accessible to students regardless of economic circumstance.

Growth is very rapid and a constant for us. Keeping up with the demand on hardware is tough. We put serious strain on our servers-on average 500 to 600 devices are accessing the servers on a daily basis. The consistent traffic can cause significant delays in the processes of our infrastructure's hardware," said Bobbi Jo Kelly, Director of Technology, The Epiphany School of Global Studies. We are looking forward to the addition of Atlantis HyperScale making dramatic improvements in the efficiency and reliability of our existing hardware and are excited about the cost savings we expect to garner. We anticipate the Atlantis appliance will quickly relieve the burden of processing and server strain so that the relentless access will streamline and result in a quick, reliable experience for our end users.

We are able to run more than 200 desktops on a SAN that without ILIO would only be able to run 50... Even when you take into account the cost of the Atlantis ILIO software, we saved 50% on the capital expense of our SAN.

The cost and operational complexity of maintaining and refreshing thousands of physical PCs drove HMSA to rethink its desktop computing strategy and initiate a switch to virtual desktops. HMSA chose Atlantis ILIO to provide a better-than-PC user experience, while increasing the number of virtual desktops per server from 30 to 200.

The combination of Atlantis ILIO and Fusion-io enables us to guarantee 1000 IOPS per desktop. In some cases, I have seen as much as 20,000 IOPS per desktop.

Mid Coast Hospital, Maine's most modern hospital, has deployed Atlantis ILIO storage optimization software on the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) as part of its VMware View deployment to help streamline IT operations while providing reliable and high performance virtual desktops for physicians, nurses and staff.

The latest version of Atlantis ILIO is incredibly fast. We are able to deploy 70 linked clones per server in 12 minutes, and we can do that on all servers at the same time to scale to an unlimited number of users with no performance impact.

In addition to significantly cutting our operational costs, the improved security and centralized control of our desktop transformation allows us to more easily prove compliance with National Health Service governance directives....the improved performance realized with our new desktop virtualization implementation is allowing our doctors to spend less time waiting to access their devices and more time with their patients, thus improving the care we provide.

Washington Trust Bank, the largest independently owned full-service commercial bank in the Northwest, has deployed Atlantis ILIO as part of its VMware View desktop virtualization deployment to enable employees to access their virtual desktop from anywhere using Wyse thin clients and zero clients, iPads, personal computers or repurposed corporate PCs.

If adding more storage was the only solution, we were going to kill the VDI project... We had a sizable user base that experienced the pre-ILIO virtual desktop performance issues and once we migrated all the users to Atlantis ILIO, it was completely positive and the issues users were having evaporated.

The Colt office of the future program has created a flexible working environment and helped to increase productivity. Using traditional disk-based storage architectures for VDI proved to be costly and complex. We therefore decided to take a new approach, running VMware View desktops with Atlantis ILIO on Cisco UCS servers without storage—Using Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI simplifies our VMware View deployment, reduces operational complexity and delivers both a vastly improved user experience and a much lower cost per desktop.

Atlantis ILIO Solves the Virtual Desktop Storage Challenge for Swiss Bank

Atlantis ILIO is an enabler for VDI. If you don’t solve the storage IO problem, the cost per desktop is extremely high. For Frankfurter Bank, the cost per desktop was 2,000 CHF [$2,223 USD] using our SAN. If you don’t solve this intelligently, management won’t accept the cost of VDI and it will lead to project cancellation. Atlantis ILIO enabled us to implement VDI for a lower cost than a physical PC by reusing our existing SAN more efficiently and reducing our storage costs by 93% in the process.

It’s a pull rather than push effect. Early adopters like the new service because booting up, logging in and launching applications is much faster. Hearing this from colleagues rather than IT makes others ask if they can have it too. People want it as quickly as we can get it out to them. The cost per seat is between 20 and 25 percent lower than before.

Franciscus Hospital is a NIAZ (Netherlands Institute for Accreditation of Hospitals) quality certified hospital that provides all hospital services for the West Brabant region in the Netherlands.

The fact that we did not need to purchase any extra hardware, which comes with extra management and maintenance costs, was the most important factor in deciding to purchase Atlantis ILIO. The ILIO Software works on our standard hardware, so we did not have to make exceptions in our purchasing decisions.

The university is distributed across four main campuses with multiple remote sites. It has 25,000 users, including 2,500 staff.

Atlantis has kept the cost down and is easy to use, but in terms of performance, we can run all the virtual desktops flat out and still get 500 IOPS each, which is better than with physical desktops. We get latency of about 0.8 milliseconds via SVC and 0.3 or 0.4 milliseconds via Atlantis.
