Recognized for Creating New Opportunities in Cloud Computing
Mountain View, CA, March 28, 2011 - Atlantis Computing, a leading provider of VDI performance and storage optimization solutions, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDemand Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnDemand 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Atlantis Computing was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
Atlantis Computing and the OnDemand Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s OnDemand event on March 28th, 2011, at Hewlett-Packard’s Worldwide Headquarters in Palo Alto, CA.
This two-and-a-half-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on how the Internet is disrupting how companies—from small businesses to large enterprises—create, store, distribute, analyze, and take advantage of their mission-critical data.
“As the digital information created by businesses continues to explode at astronomical rates, the need to store, manage, socialize, and share this information is becoming extremely challenging,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “By providing innovative technologies that help enterprises better compete in this new era of information complexity and move their data out into the cloud, the OnDemand 100 represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in the private company marketplace.”
The OnDemand 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2011 list.

“VDI is a strategic initiative for enterprises looking to lower desktop management costs, efficiently migrate to Windows 7 and deliver mobile access to corporate data and applications from thin clients, PCs and tablet devices,” said Bernard Harguindeguy, CEO, Atlantis Computing. “To make VDI deployments successful, organizations have to address the CAPEX and user acceptance obstacles that have plagued large scale initiatives. Atlantis is changing the dynamics of VDI by turning the economics and performance characteristics on its head. Atlantis ILIO accelerates Citrix XenDesktop and VMware View VDI deployments by lowering the cost of virtual desktops to below that of a PC, making virtual desktops perform faster than a PC and making it possible for customers to use anti-virus agents without impacting performance or the number of desktops per server.”
