The Atlantis ILIOTM software virtual machine 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.
"VDI is a strategic initiative for an increasing number of enterprises looking to lower desktop costs, efficiently migrate to Windows 7 and deliver mobile access to corporate data and applications," said Bernard Harguindeguy, CEO, Atlantis Computing. "To make VDI deployments successful, organizations have to address CAPEX and user acceptance obstacles that typically plague 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 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."
