Atlantis Computing Launches Groundbreaking New Storage …
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Jun 20, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) — Today Atlantis Computing(TM), a number one provider of storage optimization software for virtual servers and desktops, will unveil Atlantis ILIO FlexCloud 1.0 onstage at GigaOM Structure, one of the vital influential cloud computing conferences. The brand new software product allows enterprises and repair providers to fundamentally change the performance and economics of storage-intensive virtualized server and cloud applications like databases, big data and custom enterprise applications.
“With our success within the desktop virtualization market, we’re constantly asked by customers to bring to market solutions for virtual servers that optimize storage utilization like we do for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI),” said Bernard Harguindeguy, CEO of Atlantis Computing. “With the introduction of Atlantis ILIO FlexCloud 1.0, we’re demonstrating how our technology has the ability to deliver similar performance, cost and scalability benefits to server virtualization and the cloud.”
Atlantis ILIO was the primary storage optimization software solution delivered for VDI in 2009 and is a key enabler of the most important and most successful VDI deployments on the planet including JPMorgan Chase, Colt, CBRE and Washington Trust Bank.
“After we first tried to deploy desktop virtualization, we suddenly met performance problems and weren’t in a position to scale until we deployed Atlantis ILIO software to optimize how the virtual desktops use storage,” said Chris Green, VP of IT Infrastructure at Washington Trust Bank. “Today each time we add virtualized servers, we need to purchase much more storage to make sure that we’ve enough capacity and function available for the appliance. We glance forward to extending our use of Atlantis ILIO technology to virtualized servers.”
Atlantis ILIO FlexCloud 1.0 is application-aware storage optimization software that enhances virtualization solutions from Citrix, Microsoft and VMware. The answer intelligently processes all storage IO traffic throughout the hypervisor to diminish the quantity of IO sent to storage and boosts application performance. Because of this, storage is used more efficiently as less is required for a given application, and more applications may also be supported by the storage fabric.
Atlantis ILIO FlexCloud 1.0 could be configured to apply server memory (RAM) as tiered storage enabling clustered applications that require processing massive amounts of information to function very efficiently in scale out shared storage environments.
Atlantis ILIO FlexCloud 1.0 Features
-- Application Characterization - Identifies and maps storage IO traffic characteristics of application and responds intelligently according to patterns. -- Inline IO Deduplication - Eliminates duplicate Write and browse IO traffic to minimize the quantity of storage traffic. -- IO Processing - Processes IO requests from the hypervisor in order that processing occurs in memory rather than being serviced by storage leading to improved performance. -- Scatter/Gather Coalescing - Reverses the IO blender effect introduced with virtualization by transforming smaller randomized IO traffic into easier to consume larger sequential blocks to further boost network and storage efficiency. -- Fast Clone - Creates new virtual machine clones on demand using Atlantis ILIO without copying data from storage or introducing performance overhead.
Atlantis ILIO FlexCloud 1.0 is in private beta and is anticipated to be generally available this summer.
