DAILYHOSTNEWS, October 13, 2011 – Atlantis Computing, the leader in Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) storage and performance optimization solutions, today announced it has been recognized on The Leaderboard as one of the Top 100 Up and Coming Innovators, Movers and Shakers. The company was named to the Top 100 list based on its innovative technology for virtual desktops. The list serves as an acknowledgement to vendors gaining mind share in Q3 of 2011.
VDI is the fastest growing approach to allowing IT departments to centrally host and manage user desktops on a virtual machine residing in the data center. Users can access their server-hosted virtual desktops, from anywhere there is connectivity and from a broad range of end-user devices using one of several remote display protocols.
End users can enjoy the benefits of a virtual desktop experience that is better and faster than a physical PC through the Atlantis solution which not only cuts VDI CAPEX up to 75 percent, but also enables the use of lower cost storage options including SAN, NAS or local disks. It also makes it possible for IT organizations to use anti-virus agents to overcome the performance and security hurdles.
Atlantis ILIO virtual desktop optimization solution complements VMware, Citrix and Quest virtual desktop deployments to overcome the storage, performance and scalability challenges mostly associated with VDI deployments. The Atlantis ILIO software allows organizations that are deploying virtual desktops to ensure the success of their project by slashing the amount of storage normally required, boosting performance to ensure user acceptance and enabling security to be deployed without impacting server density.
Bernard Harguindeguy, CEO, Atlantis Computing said: “Companies like Google, IBM and Amazon are transforming the cloud computing space and to be included with this caliber of cloud providers is a real honor. With Atlantis ILIO our customers can finally afford to deploy virtual desktops and at the same time win user support for their project.”
