Atlantis USX enables local servers with RAM, SAS, Flash, or memory-channel storage to create highly scalable, hyperconverged platform using existing servers. Atlantis USX provides the flexibility to pool commodity local storage with RAM and/or flash across multiple server farms. By doing so, customers can seamlessly scale out their architecture to create a hyperconverged infrastructure and manage their applications without having to rip out their existing infrastructure. Get up to 300TB of effective storage capacity in a 3 server configuration.

Key Benefits

Cost Reduction

  • 80% lower cost per GB than all-flash arrays. Lower costs by pooling local server disk, flash, SSD and flash on DIMM
  • 90% lower cost per IOPS than SAN
  • No OPEX for datacenter storage
  • Get up to 5 times more virtual machines per VSAN cluster

Scalability

  • Scale out linearly to an unlimited number of servers and petabytes of integrated storage
  • Scales using high density blades or using rack servers
  • Add storage capacity or performance dynamically through software

Storage Performance

  • Achieve up to 3.3 million IOPS in a 3 blade cluster
  • Boost performance of any VSAN cluster by up to 5 times
  • Latency: 1.15 ms
  • OLTP Database: 2 million tpm
  • VDI: 5x Disk Performance of MacBook Air

Management

  • Automated deployment with push-button installation, configuration and datastore creation across the datacenter
  • Flexible policy-based controls that deliver optimal storage capacity, performance and availability to each VM using any class of storage; local and shared, file and block
  • Simple and instant provisioning by creating any type of storage and cloned virtual machine in seconds
