Atlantis Releases USX(TM) 2.0 -- All-Flash Performance at Half the Cost of SAN Storage

Introducing the First All-Flash Hyper-Converged Storage System, Teleport(TM), and VMware VVOL for Any Storage

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/20/14 -- Atlantis Computing®, a leading provider of Software-Defined Storage, today announced the release of Atlantis USX™ 2.0, a software-defined storage platform that delivers all-flash performance at half the cost of SAN. 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.

Atlantis USX HyperDup Content-Aware Data Services
At the heart of the Atlantis USX platform are patented HyperDup™ Content-Aware Data Services that leverage Atlantis real-time deduplication technology to provide data reduction, IO acceleration, provisioning, data mobility, security and business continuity for any storage.

Supporting Quotes:
"With USX 2.0, Atlantis has delivered on the promise of software-defined storage: storage consolidation of existing enterprise capacity to support 10 times more data and VMs, performance acceleration to drive 10 times better performance, and a unique Teleport functionality that gives our customers increased flexibility to move VMs between datacenters and the cloud," said Jason Donahue, President & CEO, Atlantis. "Atlantis USX makes it possible for our customers to transform their datacenters and redefine the way they purchase, use and manage storage."

"By providing a wide range of data services in a hypervisor-based software layer, the Atlantis USX platform allows system architects to boost both the performance and manageability of any existing storage solution they may have," said Howard Marks, Chief Scientist at DeepStorage, LLC." Even when used with a state-of-the art hybrid array in DeepStorage Labs, Atlantis USX provided a significant boost in performance at a very reasonable cost for server-side SSDs. USX 2.0 adds more than just acceleration, bringing data services like snapshots and data deduplication to even local storage or shared storage from a solution like VMware Virtual SAN."

"The modern data center is changing so rapidly that our ability to control critical resources is becoming a serious challenge. Technologies like Atlantis USX 2.0 help abstract the storage component into the logical layer to allow for storage optimization, better data control, and true infrastructure agility," said Bill Kleyman, Director of Strategy and Innovation, MTM technologies. "The coupling of OpenStack and VMware vCAC automation technologies with USX 2.0 allows entire storage platforms to span a variety of cloud environments. This is the architecture for the next-generation data center. This is where organizations can align their business plans with the capabilities of IT. By allowing the data control layer to directly interact with both the hypervisor and the organization's cloud environment -- you create a platform capable of elasticity, dynamic resource control, and direct business alignment."

Availability: Atlantis USX 2.0 will be generally available through certified Atlantis solution partners on September 2nd, 2014.
