Mountain View, CA, October 12, 2011 – Atlantis Computing™, the leader in Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) storage and performance optimization solutions, today announced it has been recognized on The Leaderboard as one of the Top 100 Up and Coming Innovators, Movers and Shakers. The list serves as an acknowledgement to vendors gaining mind share in Q3 of 2011. Atlantis Computing was named to the Top 100 list based on the company’s innovative technology for virtual desktops.
VDI is the fastest growing approach to allowing IT departments to centrally host and manage user desktops on a virtual machine residing in the data center. Users can access their server-hosted virtual desktops, including their applications and files, from anywhere there is connectivity and from a broad range of end-user devices (including iPads) using one of several remote display protocols. But two obstacles have slowed down adoption: the storage cost and user acceptance due to poor performance.
Atlantis ILIO™ virtual desktop optimization solution complements VMware, Citrix and Quest virtual desktop deployments to overcome the storage, performance and scalability challenges typically associated with VDI deployments. The Atlantis ILIO software allows organizations that are deploying virtual desktops to ensure the success of their project by slashing the amount of storage normally required, boosting performance to ensure user acceptance and enabling security to be deployed without impacting server density.
The Atlantis solution cuts VDI CAPEX up to 75 percent by using up to 90 percent less storage and enables the use of lower cost storage options including SAN, NAS or local disks. It also makes it possible for IT organizations to use anti-virus agents to overcome the performance and security hurdles. As a result end users reap the benefits of a virtual desktop experience that is better and faster than a physical PC.
“Companies like Google, IBM and Amazon are transforming the cloud computing space and to be included with this caliber of cloud providers is a real honor,” said Bernard Harguindeguy, CEO, Atlantis Computing. “With Atlantis ILIO our customers can finally afford to deploy virtual desktops and at the same time win user support for their project.”
