Atlantis ILIO lets you deploy faster and more cost effective virtual desktops (VDI) and applications.

Atlantis ILIO is a 100% software solution that changes the way Citrix XenDesktop /XenApp and VMWare Horizon (with View) consume storage, reducing storage requirements by up to 90% and delivering virtual desktops and applications that are faster and more cost effective.  Atlantis HyperDup Content-Aware Data Services processes all IO on server RAM before it hits primary storage to minimize IO by up to 95% and reduce run time storage footprint by up to 90%.

"This is absolutely the fastest desktop I've ever used in my life."Brian Madden, Independent Industry VDI Guru

Atlantis ILIO Persistent VDI lets you deploy persistent virtual desktops that are cheaper and faster then a physical PC.

  • Common desktop operations like boot, log-on, application launch, anti-virus scans, Windows desktop and email searches, and log-off literally take just a few seconds.  Atlantis ILIO enables these environments to be scaled linearly and predictably, while maintaining blazing desktop performance-without requiring additional disk spindles or SSD.
  • Atlantis ILIO Persistent VDI In-Memory mode is a great fit for new virtual desktop installations that may not have already purchased infrastructure.  Server RAM is used as primary storage to deliver an incredible and optimized backup and ensure complete data protection and availability.
  • Atlantis ILIO Persistent VDI Disk-Backed is a great option to use traditional storage technologies optimized by Atlantis ILIO along with server RAM. In this scenario, Atlantis ILIO employs memory as a tier, using a small amount of server RAM all IO processing while using the existing SAN/NAS storage or all-flash arrays as primary storage.  Its storage optimization increase the number of desktops that storage can support by up to 10 times while, at the same time, improving performance.  Disk-Backed configurations can use a variety of different storage types including SAN, NAS, all flash and hybrid storage array.

"Atlantis ILIO seems within reach of the Holy Grail of VDI: the elimination of all storage-related CAPEX and OPEX, and a further decrease in desktop boot time to 12 seconds." - Bruce Hoard, VDI's Holy Grail, Virtualization Review.

Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI lets enterprises deploy stateless virtual desktops with no storage or SSD's.

  • Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI software can eliminate storage from stateless VDI deployments by leveraging local server RAM and Atlantis HyperDup Content-Aware Data Services. The solution delivers a user experience that is cheaper and faster then a PC-with a near instant app launches and searches and fast boot times-at a cost below that of a PC. Atlantis ILIO simplifies and automates the deployment of infrastructure to support thousands of virtual desktops in a matter of few hours without the cost, complexity and risks of sizing, installing and managing storage. At the same time, it delivers 6 times faster disk performance than MacBook Air for a cost per desktop under $200.
  • Using a combination of storage optimization technologies that deploy transparently, Atlantis HyperDup technology processes all IO, by passing traditional storage to minimize IO by up to 95% and reduce the run time storage footprint of desktops by up to 90%. This allows server RAM to be used as primary storage for pooled virtual desktops, ensuring that read and write IO happen at memory speeds and eliminating network traffic.
  • Common desktop operations like boot log-on, application launch, anti-virus scans, Windows desktop and email searches, and log-off literally take just a few seconds.  Atlantis ILIO enables these environments to be scaled linearly and predictably, while maintaining blazing desktop performance-without requiring additional disk spindles or SSD.

"The deployment of virtual desktops is strategic to JDMorgan Chase.  Virtual desktops increase user productivity, lower costs and will ultimately become a competitive advantage for us." -Paul McEwen, Managing Director, JPMorgan Chase

Atantis ILIO for XenApp lets enterprises virtualize XenApp with no storage or SSD's.

  • Atlantis ILIO for XenApp Disk-Backed mode is a great option for XenApp deployments that do not leverage single image management techniques (PVS, MCS).  In this scenario, Atlantis ILIO employs memory as a tier, using a  small amount of server RAM for all IO processing while using the existing SAN/NAS storage or all-flash arrays as primary storage.  It creases the user density that the existing storage can support by up to 10 times, significantly lowering the cost per user.  It also reduces the amount of IO that storage must handle by up to 95%, effectively increasing the amount of IOS available to drive application performance.  Disk-Backed configurations can use a variety of different storage types including SAN, NAS, all-flash and hybrid storage arrays.
  • Atlantis ILIO for XenApp In-Memory mode is a great fit for XenApp installation that leverage single image management techniques (PVS, MCS). Server RAM is used as primary storage to deliver an incredible end user experience.  It is fully compatible with desktop provisioning services based around Citrix PVS, integrating transparently with automated deployment services and other processes that may already be in place.

"After deploying Atlantis ILIO in our virtualized XenApp environment, we reduced our log-on times by 40% relative to well performing SSD's, decreased application launch times by 30-40%, increased our user density per instance by 20%, and reduced our help desk call volume by 70%." - Jonathan Eyton-Williams, Practice Lead, End User Computing, Kelway International
