Ready Informatica Signs Distribution Agreement with Atlantis Computing to Accelerate VDI Adoption in Italy

Casatenovo, Italy - September 4, 2013 -Atlantis ILIO Storage Optimization Software Expands VDI Market Opportunity by Making Virtual Desktops Cheaper and Faster than PCs

Ready Informatica is pleased to announce that it has signed a distribution agreement with Atlantis Computing Inc., the award-winning leader in data center storage optimization solutions. Atlantis ILIO storage optimization software enables Ready Informatica and its channel partners to deliver VDI solutions that are cheaper and faster than PCs using any server brand and any type of storage expanding the VDI market to more customers.

Channel partners that integrate Atlantis ILIO software into their desktop virtualization offering will increase hardware and services revenues, and grow profit margins, while delivering solution to their VDI customer to address existing issues or selling new VDI implementations that are high performance, low cost and manageable at scale.

Desktop virtualization hides several pitfalls mainly because the client operating systems are not designed to be run in virtualized environments. Storage is definitely the largest component impacted both in terms of capacity and I / O requests, often these 2 elements restricting the adoption of VDI solution or involve investment such as to make the virtual desktop uneconomical.

Atlantis ILIO is unique in that:  

  • Allows you to provide users with a virtual PC, quick and cost-effectively
  • Storage-based solution is not to make efficient VDI environments
  • Possibility of making more dense VDI environments already in production, up to quadruple the number of VM
  • Significant reduction of human errors made in the design phase
  • Migration from VM persistent to stateless without infrastructure changes
  • High availability and Disaster Recovery to recover thousands of desktops within a datacenter or across datacenters.

"Atlantis Computing is a natural choice for us and a perfect fit to complement our Citrix VDI offering. Atlantis Computing is behind the largest and most successful desktop virtualization deployments in the world and has more than tripled its customer base over the past year. Our channel partners can leverage Atlantis Computing's unique storage optimization software to improve the quality of their VDI offerings, increase their profit margins and grow the number of installations by breaking down the typical barriers for VDI adoption: performance, user experience and storage cost," says Marco Lorefice, Ready Informatica Marketing Director.

Atlantis ILIO, which won Best of VMworld in Europe and the United States, and Best of Synergy Citrix optimizes how virtual desktops use data center storage. The software reduces the amount of storage needed for each user, boosts desktop performance and reduces deployment risks. Today, Atlantis ILIO is the only solution on the market that enables the deployment of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) with no physical storage. Deployments use server RAM as primary storage leading to a better-than-PC user experience at a lower cost, all while fully automating installation, storage sizing and datastore creation to reduce implementation risks and deliver working deployments faster.

Alex De Berti, Director of Sales for Italy, Atlantis Computing says: "I am delighted to announce the partnership with Ready Informatica , who has been instrumental in bringing Citrix products to the Italian market. The desktop virtualization trend is as strong as ever and rapidly expanding in Italy. Atlantis ILIO allows partners to offer desktop virtualization projects at a significantly lower cost with better performance than a traditional PC, which increases customer demand for VDI. We are looking forward to our continued growth and expansion in the Italian market and leveraging the expertise and partner network of Ready Informatica to be able to accelerate the adoption of VDI in Italy."
