Atlantis Computing Partners with VMware to Simplify Infrastructure for VMware View™ 5.1 - Joe Austin - Blog

Atlantis Computing Partners with VMware to Simplify Infrastructure for VMware View™ 5.1

Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI 3.2 to Deliver Amazing Desktop Performance with No Storage

Mountain View, CA – Atlantis Computing™, the leader in Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) storage and performance optimization solutions, today announced the release of Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI 3.2™, a solution that enables VMware View™ customers to deploy virtual desktops with no storage. Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI can help simplify VMware View deployments by enabling customers to deploy virtual desktops using only server CPU and RAM, while at the same time delighting users with a faster than PC experience. Without storage, the infrastructure is easier to manage and the CAPEX including the servers and Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI can drop below $200 per virtual desktop, while removing storage related OPEX.

“The Colt office of the future program has created a flexible working environment and helped to increase productivity. Using traditional disk-based storage architectures for VDI proved to be costly and complex,” said Chris Hewertson, CIO, Colt Technology Services. “We therefore decided to take a new approach, running VMware View desktops with Atlantis ILIO on Cisco UCS servers without storage. All user profiles are kept on highly available EMC shared storage. With our completely stateless virtual desktops, EMC storage is critical for storing user profile data including documents and settings. Using Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI simplifies our VMware View deployment, reduces operational complexity and delivers both a vastly improved user experience and a much lower cost per desktop.”

Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI software works with VMware View 5.1 without using storage for virtual desktop images in stateless deployments, while boosting performance to new levels. Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI is software that performs IO traffic processing and inline deduplication of images to run all desktops from local server memory.

“Customers are seeking ways to reduce their desktop TCO while improving the end-user experience as they accelerate their journey to the cloud with VMware View™,” said Vittorio Viarengo, Vice President, End-User Computing at VMware. “We are pleased to work with Atlantis Computing; their Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI can help lower the cost of virtual desktops and enhance the end-user experience.”

Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI 3.2 includes advanced compression and Fast Cloning technologies for VMware View 5.1. The combination of Atlantis ILIO inline deduplication and compression technology reduces the size of VMware View linked-clones to around 500MB per desktop. Atlantis ILIO Fast Cloning has been integrated with Diskless VDI to clone virtual desktop images in five seconds per desktop, enabling the deployment of 100 VMware View 5.1 virtual desktops per server in eight-and-a-half minutes.

“The combination of VMware View™ 5.1 and Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI can simplify how VDI is deployed,” said Bernard Harguindeguy, President and CEO, Atlantis Computing. “VMware View can be deployed to thousands of desktops in a matter of a few hours without installing or managing storage. We look forward to continuing our integration efforts with VMware View, and also using the new VCAI capabilities to further simply VDI deployments.”

Atlantis ILIO also complements VMware View Storage Accelerator by extending it to provide continuous storage optimization and offload of write IO traffic from storage, which is critical to scaling VDI deployments.

Atlantis ILIO has been tested with VMware View, VMware ThinApp® Linked-Clones and Persona as part of the “VMware View, Atlantis ILIO and Trend Micro Reference Architecture”. To read the document, visit

What’s New in Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI 3.2?

• Advanced Image Compression – Reduces the amount of memory needed per virtual desktop image.

• Fast Cloning for Diskless VDI – Atlantis ILIO Fast Cloning can clone virtual desktop images in 5 seconds, making it possible to deploy 100 VMware View 5.1 virtual desktops in less than 8 1/2 minutes.

Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI Benefits Include:

Unmatched Performance – Dramatically improves all aspects of desktop performance including boot, login, application launches, patching and anti-virus scanning.

• Lower Cost – Atlantis ILIO reduces the cost per desktop from both a CAPEX and OPEX perspective:

o CAPEX – The upfront cost per desktop can be decreased to under $200 per desktop including the server hardware, Atlantis ILIO license and storage.

o OPEX – Diskless VDI architectures mean that IT organizations can lower operating expenses by eliminating rack space for SAN/NAS storage, lower power consumption and cooling costs, and eliminate the operational expenses of maintaining disk-based storage including replacing failed disks.

Increased Lifespan – Memory does not suffer from the lifespan issues SSDs have when dealing with write-intensive VDI workloads. Diskless VDI architectures have lower operational costs as disk failure and replacement have been completely eliminated.
