Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and Mountain View, California ― August 30, 2011 ― Lakeside Software®, a leader in business intelligence solutions for IT professionals and Atlantis Computing™, a leader in VDI storage and performance optimization solutions, today announced the integration of Lakeside SysTrack® and Atlantis ILIO™ solutions, giving IT professionals deeper insight into VDI storage utilization and the means to more efficiently reduce storage cost per desktop while delivering faster desktop performance.
Atlantis ILIO enables customers to dramatically cut the amount of storage required for VDI by up to 90% and deliver a “Better than PC” experience. During the pilot phase of a VDI deployment, joint customers use Lakeside’s SysTrack Virtual Machine Planner (VMP) to quantify the storage reduction and performance improvements realized by deploying Atlantis ILIO.
Through this integration, SysTrack VMP tracks, aggregates and reports comprehensive statistics projecting VDI storage utilization and disk access performance before and after a VDI deployment with Atlantis ILIO optimization, and provides projected savings realized through this implementation. Data is provided in both tabular and graphical formats to facilitate actionable interpretation of VDI storage statistics. SysTrack also monitors and manages the post-VDI deployment environment to assure continued storage optimization.
“To justify implementation, VDI must deliver cost, performance and scalability improvements over the existing physical PC-based computing infrastructure,” said Dan Salinas, Vice President of Business Development for Lakeside Software. “Atlantis ILIO provides measurable benefits in all three.”
“There is a pervasive problem with VDI projects under sizing the amount of storage and IOPS needed per desktop to deliver acceptable desktop performance. Ultimately, this results in users rejecting virtual desktops,” said Rajiv Pimplaskar, VP of Corporate Development, Atlantis Computing. “Lakeside SysTrack VMP helps IT teams identify the optimal storage specifications required to deliver the desired virtual desktop user experience.”
