Atlantis Computing named a strong performer in The Forrester Wave: Hyperconverged Infrastructure Q3 2016 Report

Bob D - Atlantis

The results are in- great news for Atlantis Computing! Today we were named a strong performer in The Forrester Wave Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI), Q3 2016 report. The report evaluated 12 vendors based on a 28-criteria assessment, including current offering, strategy and market presence. 
Atlantis received high ratings throughout, particularly in the current offering category, where we earned exemplary scores (5 out of a possible 5 rating) for availability, manageability/ease of operations, flash-based performance and deduplication. The company also received high scores in hyperconverged functions, advanced RAID, hardware platform support and non-virtualized environment support.

In particular, we’re seeing strong demand for HCI in virtual desktops. Atlantis weaves together SDS, workspace components such as Citrix or VMware-based desktop virtualization technology, and our integrated appliances to provide a fully integrated, agile virtual workspace infrastructure.
Our approach on hyperconvergence is different because we give customers a choice of two options, which can be used together: 
1) Atlantis USX to pool and abstract all storage, from DAS to SAN, to instantly deliver virtual storage volumes to any application and virtual desktops; or 
2) Atlantis HyperScale appliances, which integrate servers, all-flash storage and virtualization into a single appliance at a cost that is 50 to 90 percent lower than traditional datacenters. 
Being named a Strong Performer in the Forrester Wave report is a great validation of how Atlantis is continuing to innovate in the market to bring agility, efficiency and assurance to the data center.  This is especially timely coming off the heels of winning Best of Synergy awards, where Atlantis USX and HyperScale were recognized for enabling virtual desktops that run faster and are more cost effective than physical PCs. 
We’re not resting on our laurels, that’s for sure. ICYMI, we recently helped Fujitsu roll out its VCS appliance based on Atlantis USX. We’ll continue to double down on making hyperconverged solutions more powerful and cost-effective for customers. We’ve got some exciting announcements ahead at Atlantis, stay tuned!
