MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 4, 2014) - Atlantis Computing®, a leading provider of Software-Defined Storage, today announced that Atlantis USX™ 2.0, the software-defined storage platform that delivers all-flash performance at half the cost of SAN, was awarded the Best of VMworld 2014 Gold Award for the Storage & Backup category. The new release powers the first all-flash hyper-converged storage system, adds a groundbreaking new technology that allows enterprises to Teleport virtual machines between datacenters and the cloud in seconds, and offers VMware VVOL support for any storage system.
The First All-Flash Hyper-Converged Storage System
Atlantis and our hardware partners are teaming up to deliver the industry's first all-flash hyper-converged storage system featuring cutting-edge Flash DIMM memory-channel storage, PCIe Flash, DRAM and optional SAS storage for capacity expansion. Atlantis USX pools local server flash and applies Atlantis HyperDup™ data services, including real-time deduplication and compression to increase effective storage capacity by up to 10 times. With an entry-level, three-server configuration, enterprises can process more than two million OLTP database transactions per minute, deliver up to one million real-world IOPS (80% write, 80% random 4KB blocks) and support four hundred persistent power-user virtual desktops.
Atlantis Teleport - Unprecedented Data Mobility
Teleport, a new capability in the Atlantis USX 2.0 platform, dramatically improves business agility by enabling virtualization administrators to move or migrate VMs between storage systems, datacenters and the cloud in seconds -- compared to hours with traditional Storage vMotion. With Teleport, the speed of data mobility makes it possible to instantly migrate VMs between storage systems, dynamically expand and contract datacenters on a daily basis to save power, and quickly move test and development environments across continents to go into production.
VMware VVOL Support for Any Storage - Past, Present or Future
Atlantis USX provides a strategic storage abstraction layer for VMware environments that completely virtualizes storage, allowing all storage (past, present and future) to instantly become VVOL compliant without the need to purchase or update SAN/NAS infrastructure. With Atlantis USX and VMware VVOL, all storage becomes VM-centric, supporting per VM operations, including snapshots, cloning, replication and acceleration. In addition, Atlantis USX works seamlessly with VMware Virtual SAN and Horizon to reduce the storage required to deploy virtualized workloads by up to 90%, while improving application performance by up to 10 times.
Atlantis USX - Storage Consolidation and Performance Acceleration
Atlantis USX enables businesses to get 10 times more storage capacity out of their existing storage investment, reclaim up to 90% of their SAN and NAS storage capacity and turn under-utilized direct-attached storage (DAS) into enterprise-class storage that delivers all-flash array performance. Instead of being caught in an endless cycle of doubling storage capacity every two years, IT organizations are now empowered to extend the life of existing shared storage by 5 years or more without the need to purchase any new hardware. Storage costs may be lowered by 75% by Atlantis USX, which provides 10 times more effective storage capacity on existing storage, accelerates performance without additional hardware and enables businesses to unlock under-utilized DAS.
"We are thrilled to receive the Best of VMworld 2014 Gold Award for Storage & Backup for Atlantis USX 2.0," said Chetan Venkatesh, CTO & Founder, Atlantis Computing. "With USX 2.0, Atlantis continues to innovate and deliver the most advanced implementation of software-defined storage in the industry. USX 2.0 has all the important features and capabilities that customers need to replace old school storage. It's clear that Storage is Software."
