Why Atlantis HyperScale is Better
Traditional Storage + Compute
With traditional storage and compute, enterprises buy either SAN or NAS storage arrays and servers separately. This approach is both complex and costly as the IT organization is responsible for integrating, managing and maintaining disparate systems to deliver IT services. Atlantis HyperScale integrates servers, storage and virtualization into a single appliance that delivers orders of magnitude better storage performance at 50-90% lower cost.
With converged systems, enterprises buy SAN or NAS storage arrays and servers that are integrated by a third-party and delivered to the customer in a single rack. Converged systems are simply packaged storage, networking and compute components that add little value over traditional systems. While this approach simplifies integration of the components, it is complex to maintain, provides limited performance with diskbased storage and is costly. Atlantis HyperScale integrates servers, storage and virtualization into a single appliance that delivers orders of magnitude better storage performance at 50–90% lower cost.
With hyperconverged appliances, local storage, servers and virtualzation are integrated into a single system, simplifying deployment and management. However, hybrid hyperconverged appliances remain costly and deliver poor storage performance compared to all-flash storage systems. Atlantis HyperScale is the first economically viable all-flash hyperconverged system that integrates servers, storage and virtualization into a single appliance that delivers order of magnitude better storage performance at 50–90% lower cost. Unlike other hyperconverged appliances, Atlantis HyperScale avoids vendor lock-in by supporting multiple hypervisors, eliminating dependence on proprietary hardware, and supporting four of the leading server platforms (Cisco, HP, Lenovo, SuperMicro).
Atlantis HyperScale all-flash hyperconverged appliances provide an ideal infrastructure platform for server virtualization that provides servers, storage, networking and virtualization in a single appliance at a cost that is 50-90% lower than traditional datacenters.
According to Gartner, 71% of all servers are now virtualized and 82% will be virtualized by 20181. The rapid growth of virtualized server OS instances and VM sprawl for databases, web servers, application servers and other VMs have outstripped the ability of traditional storage systems to service their storage traffic. Datacenter storage requirements are growing at 40% per year—doubling every two years. Not only is capacity growing out of control, but virtualized servers require high performance storage that delivers the IOPS, throughput and latency required to make applications perform their best. The purchase of traditional SAN and NAS storage to meet this demand is costly and exceeding budgets. All-Flash arrays are costly and create yet another silo in the datacenter. Hybrid hyperconverged systems lack the performance and remain costly.
Atlantis HyperScale hyperconverged appliances deliver all-flash performance at 50-90% lower cost than traditional storage or competitive hyperconverged appliances. Instead of integrating costly and complex SAN, NAS or all-flash array storage with servers, Atlantis HyperScale delivers an all-flash hyperconverged solution that is pre-integrated with compute, enterprise-class all-flash storage and virtualization. Within 60 minutes, organizations can deploy turnkey appliances that provide up to 96 CPU cores, 2TB of RAM and 24TB of all-flash storage that can support hundreds of server VMs.

Cheaper and Faster than a PC and Easy to Deploy
Performance, cost, and complexity issues have derailed many VDI and XenApp projects, depriving IT and end users of the many benefits of virtual desktops. Traditional deployments which required silos containing separate storage and compute made VDI very expensive to deploy, difficult to scale efficiently and challenging to manage and troubleshoot. To keep costs in check, VDI and XenApp performance was often sacrificed, resulting in desktops that were slower than the PCs they were replacing.
Atlantis HyperScale hyperconverged appliances deliver virtual desktops with the performance of a MacBook Air at up to 75% lower cost when compared with traditional storage or other hyperconverged appliances. Instead of piecing together costly and complex SAN, NAS or all-flash array storage with servers, Atlantis HyperScale is a fully integrated compute and storage solution that comes preconfigured with Citrix or VMware hypervisors. Within 60 minutes, an automated configuration process can set up the required infrastructure to deploy up to 600 virtual desktops per appliance. Atlantis HyperScale is easily scalable and runs on your preferred hardware platform, minimizing data center complexity. Also, the appliances come with a single point of support and maintenance with 3 year, 24x7x365 coverage and 4 hours parts replacement.

Atlantis HyperScale all-flash hyperconverged appliances deliver outstanding storage and compute performance for all types of databases at a 50-90% lower cost.
The chart above shows a HammerDB database benchmark (creation phase) doing 3.9 million transactions per minute on an Atlantis HyperScale CX-24 appliance. Databases are the foundation of many mission-critical business functions and rely on storage performance to process stock trades, execute a web search or support ERP applications. For online transaction processing (OLTP) databases, storage systems are measured by the number of transactions that can be achieved per minute and the cost per transaction per minute. Due to the size, performance and reliability requirements of databases, customer are force to purchase expensive all-flash or tier-1 SAN arrays for millions of dollars to support their databases.
Atlantis HyperScale hyperconverged appliances deliver all-flash performance that accelerated databases at 50-90% lower cost per transaction than SAN or All-flash arrays. Instead of integrating costly and complex SAN, NAS or all-flash array storage with servers, Atlantis HyperScale delivers an all-flash hyperconverged solution that is pre-integrated with compute, enterprise-class all-flash storage and virtualization. Within 60 minutes, organizations can deploy turnkey appliances that provide up to 96 CPU cores, 2TB of RAM and 24TB of all-flash storage to support to most intense database workloads.
