Atlantis Computing Receives Top Test Marks From Virtualization Review For VDI Storage and Performance Optimization Solution

Mountain View, CA –January 9, 2012 – Atlantis Computing™, the leader in Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) storage and performance optimization solutions, today announced the results of a product test performed by Virtualization Review. The findings of the independent product review validates that the Atlantis ILIO solution delivers a 10x performance improvement on VDI Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS) while giving users a better and more cost effective experience over a physical PC.

According to Logan Harbaugh, freelance reviewer for Virtualization Review, “the biggest bottleneck to implementing a virtual desktop infrastructure is IOPS. Many organizations find themselves buying expensive storage-area network (SAN) systems to get enough IOPS for good performance, and in fact may purchase much more capacity than they need to get enough disks in an array to generate the required performance. Atlantis ILIO addresses this issue by using a large amount of RAM to serve disk requests, creating a 10-fold improvement in performance .”

Atlantis ILIO is a software virtual machine that optimizes how the Microsoft Windows XP and Windows 7 operating systems interact with storage. Atlantis ILIO technologies include highly efficient processing – in the rack – of Windows NTFS storage IO traffic and inline deduplication of Windows images before they reach storage. Atlantis ILIO is designed specifically for VDI workloads and as a result, reduces the amount of traffic going to storage by up to 90 percent and decreases the storage capacity required by up to 99 percent, further reducing the amount of storage needed for a successful VDI deployment. The impact is a dramatic reduction in the cost of the virtual desktop and a large boost in desktop performance.

“We are delighted with the test results published by Virtualization Review that further validates our VDI storage optimization solution enables enterprises to slash storage requirements by up to 90 percent while giving users a 10x boost in desktop performance that is superior to a physical PC,”  said Bernard Harguindeguy, president and CEO, Atlantis Computing. “Atlantis ILIO delivers tremendous value as more and more enterprises implement our solutions to address the two major VDI hurdles they must overcome–high storage costs and poor user acceptance.”
