Atlantis ILIO is a VDI storage and performance optimization solution that complements Hosted Virtual Desktops (HVD) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) offerings by reducing storage costs, increasing performance and streamlining image management.

“Key to HVD implementations are storage requirements,” writes Mark Margevicius and Dave Russell of Gartner. “These requirements institute a major change in how IT administrators look at storage, acting as a catalyst for change that will be forthcoming with storage management and their associated tools.”[ii]

With Atlantis ILIO, HVD and VDI deployments become affordable with a 20x reduction in storage costs and gain user acceptance with a 10x increase in virtual desktop performance. Atlantis ILIO’s patent-pending IO virtualization technology is delivered as a plug-and-play appliance that transparently consolidates desktop images and offloads IO intensive (disk read/write) Windows operations from VDI storage. 

“The key to performance will be to minimize redundant data being read and written to/from disks,” writes Mark Margevicius and Dave Russell of Gartner. “We believe that advanced caching and synchronization technologies will continue to evolve over time, further minimizing actual storage requirements for transient and temporary data.”[iii]

“We consider our inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner confirmation of our mission to enable customers to transform desktop computing,” said Bernard Harguindeguy, CEO of Atlantis Computing.  “We have created a truly revolutionary technology that addresses the two fundamental VDI challenges of user acceptance and high storage costs.”
