The US Army Medical Command (Medcom) has slashed user login times from five minutes to 30 seconds in an 11,000-user virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) project with the help of Atlantis ILIO flash caching software from Atlantis Computing.
Atlantis Computing offloaded in excess of 80% of virtual desktop IOPS… Similarly, the Atlantis ILIO appliance reduced the storage capacity when provisioning virtual desktops by over 85%.
U.S. Army Chess Contract
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.

- Go live before London Olympics 2012
- IO performance with shared storages
- End-user acceptance issues
Within two weeks of contacting Atlantis Computing, we deployed 1,400 virtual desktops using Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI to significantly accelerate desktop performance for our users and ensure the continued success of the project.

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.

The deployment of virtual desktops is strategic to JPMorgan Chase. Virtual desktops increase user productivity, lower costs and will ultimately become a competitive advantage for us.
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.

The idea was that if we attack this intelligently by using Atlantis ILIO, we can offload 80–90% of the storage I/O demand and keep the cost of vLab down for customers.
We have been using Atlantis ILIO in our vLab to reduce storage by up to 90%, offload IOPS on our storage system by up to 80% and instantly provision VDI image components including as VMware View, VMware ThinApp, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft App-V and AppSense for enterprise customer proof of concepts (POCs)

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.

The Kelsey-Seybold Clinic is a large multi-specialty clinic system located in Greater Houston with its administrative headquarters in Shadow Creek Ranch, Pearland. The clinic system is a major provider of healthcare for NASA and a center for healthcare research.
So far our “desktop” speeds have increased and our management capabilities—which are now centralized—have streamlined.

Watchung Hills Regional High School is a regional public high school and school district serving students in portions of Somerset and Morris Counties in New Jersey, United States. As of the 2014-2015 school year, the school had an enrollment of 2,200 students and 150 teachers.
Watchung Hills was one of the few schools to use VDI for PARCC testing and we had the least amount of complaints of all schools.

Nationstar Mortgage, headquartered in Lewisville, Texas, just outside of Dallas, is one of the nation's leading mortgage servicers and lenders offering conforming, Fannie Mae, FHA, FHLMC, VA, Jumbo and USDA products directly to consumers.
By deploying Atlantis, we were able to not only have a cost avoidance of approximately $1,000,000, but we were also to reuse existing resources on the traditional storage solution which had an additional value of $200,000 - $300,000.
