Mountain View, CA, May 23, 2011 – Atlantis Computing, the leader in Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) storage and performance optimization solutions, today announced it has been recognized by Everything Channel in CRN’s new Virtualization 100 list. Featuring the top 100 vendors in the virtualization space as identified by the editorial staff of CRN, the list serves as the de facto resource by which VARs can begin to evaluate the best virtualization products for their business. Atlantis Computing was named to the Virtualization 100 based on the company’s innovative technology and a strong commitment to the channel. This recognition is a strong validation of the company’s superior VDI optimization solutions and strong channel ecosystem that is delivering superior products in one of the fastest growing segments of the IT market.
According to the CRN Fast Growth Study, virtualization is the number one technology that VARs are investing in over the next year. The CRN Virtualization 100 list highlights the most compelling virtualization vendors and solutions to best meet the growing needs of the channel. These featured vendors were selected based on their ability to help VARs transform themselves into true service providers and help organizations and enterprises take advantage of the ease, flexibility, scalability, elasticity and cost savings that leveraging virtualization has to offer.
The Atlantis ILIO software virtual appliance allows organizations to slash the amount and cost of storage for VDI deployments, boosts desktop performance to ensure user acceptance and allows security to be deployed without impacting server density. The solution is easily deployed by Citrix, VMware, and Quest channel partners into existing Citrix XenDesktop, VMware View, and Quest vWorkspace deployments to either support more users on the same infrastructure, or address current scalability and performance issues.
“From server to storage to desktop virtualization, this technology will become a mainstay for businesses large and small and one of the more profitable technologies for VARs to integrate and sell,” said Kelley Damore, vice president, editorial director, Everything Channel. “The Virtualization 100 list showcases the best virtualization technology solutions to help VARs navigate the virtualization landscape and determine which vendor is best suited to meet their unique needs.”
With Atlantis ILIO, the virtual desktop becomes better than a physical PC, while at the same time making their deployments more affordable to IT organizations. The Atlantis solution cuts VDI CAPEX up to 75 percent by using up to 20 times less storage and enabling more storage options to be used including lower cost SAN, NAS or local disks.
“Our software is an essential companion solution for channel partners already selling virtual desktop solutions from Citrix, VMware or Quest,” said Bernard Harguindeguy, CEO, Atlantis Computing. “Atlantis ILIO transforms lingering POCs into well performing deployments and enables VARs and system integrators to increase the pace of their VDI business with offerings that are cost effective and perform well.”
A sample of the Virtualization 100 will be featured in the May 23rd issue of CRN Magazine and online at www.crn.com.
