DAILYHOSTNEWS, October 5, 2011 – Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) storage and performance optimizations leader Atlantis Computing has today announced the expansion of its VDI solution partner program with Dell and 46 new authorized partners in North America, EMEA and APAC. VMware, Citrix and Quest partners are presented with a great opportunity through the Atlantis Computing VDI solution partner program to complement their existing VDI offerings with a solution directed towards the growth of their VDI business.
Organizations deploying virtual desktops ensure success of their projects by reducing the amount of space that is normally required. This is achieved by the Atlantis ILIO software virtual appliance. The software also boosts performance and enables security to be deployed without impacting server density. Integration of the solution is done by channel partners into the existing VMware view, Citrix XenDesktop or Quest vWorkspace deployments to either support more users on the same storage or address ongoing scalability and performance issues.
Bernard Harguindeguy, president and CEO of Atlantis Computing indicated in his remarks that Atlantis ILIO was designed specifically with channel partners in mind. “It’s easy to install and complements VMware, Citrix, and Quest VDI solutions to deliver a lower cost per desktop while enriching the user experience. The continued expansion of our partner program underscores the value of our products as more and more solutions providers use Atlantis ILIO to address the two major VDI obstacles: high storage costs and poor user acceptance.” He added.
Vice president of sales for North America Atlantis Computing, Joel Davis said: “The top VMware and Citrix desktop virtualization solution providers in North America have joined our program not only because of our game changing technology, but also because of our unique, best in class channel program.” He continued by saying that the partner program is one of the richest in the industry with margins between 20 to 30 percent and that it enabled their partners to protect their house accounts by offering a unique “Opportunity registration”.
The new solution providers include: ePlus Inc., GreenPages technology solution, INX Inc., Long view, Onx Enterprise Solution Ltd and Varrow.
The Atlantis VDI solution partner program supports its certified technology and solution partners with sales tools, training and marketing materials to accelerate their success. Atlantis Computing embraces partners that have built a virtualization practice and works in partnership to enable them attain long-term growth and success.
