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.
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.
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.

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)
