Atlantis Computing with Citrix Provisioning Services (PVS), better together

Historically the virtual workspace has challenges such as cost, performance, user-experience and complexity and PVS as part of that solution, was seen as difficult to manage. These days are over with developments within Citrix Provisioning Service to lower cost and increase performance benefit from flash, software defined storage and hyper converged infrastructure appliances. Atlantis Computing is leading in the modern virtual workspace with software defined storage (SDS) and hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) solutions.

Atlantis HyperScale testing with Jetstress

If you haven’t already done so, take a look at our latest work with Howard Marks of DeepStorage, LLC. We worked with Howard to test Jetstress against one of our Atlantis HyperScale appliances, namely a CX-12 unit with default configuration. What we wanted to achieve was to see how much storage I/O performance the HyperScale platform could theoretically drive with an Exchange workload.

Sysbench OLTP Performance: Atlantis HyperScale and Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v4 CPUs

As part of our commitment to making available the latest processor models on Atlantis HyperScale hyperconverged appliances, we were able to test Intel’s newly released Xeon® E5-2600 v4 “Broadwell-EP” based processors starting with the Sysbench OLTP MySQL database. We took an existing HyperScale CX-12 that ships with Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 “Haswell” processors and replaced the CPUs with Intel Xeon E5-2697A v4 processor, which are 2.6GHz (16C/32C) processor. With 16 cores of compute power per CPU and 8 CPUs in a 4-node 2 Rack Unit Atlantis HyperScale CX-12, we have 128 CPU cores at our disposal.

Hyperconvergence: Taking your first step

If you are like most IT leaders, you have heard of hyperconvergence but probably haven’t gotten your feet wet. Per a recent end user survey we conducted, only about 20% of respondents are currently actually using hyperconverged appliances.

Three Ways Atlantis HyperScale Transforms Remote Data Center Experience

Remote data centers take many forms such as remote offices, branch offices or micro-data centers. While remote offices or branch offices (ROBO) are small deployments such as bank branches, retail store or medical office, micro-data centers are relatively larger deployments such as factories, oil rigs or ships.  Learn how Atlantis HyperScale now enables these sites.

Kicking in Overdrive: Introducing HyperScale, powered by HP and Atlantis USX

Over the last several years there have been a number of different technology innovations that have truly captivated my attention. Atlantis Computing’s ILIO product evolving into USX Software Defined Storage (SDS) is definitely one of these attention grabbing technologies! When I first learned about ILIO, I personally experienced the value software-based I/O acceleration and data reduction technologies can bring to Server Based Computing (SBC) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environments, for both Citrix and VMware End User Computing. This was definitely game changing in the way I positioned, architected, and built SBC/VDI virtualized environments.

Deduplication – By the Numbers

Atlantis HyperScale appliances come with effective capacities -  the available capacity after in-line de-duplication that occurs when data is stored onto HyperScale Volumes. HyperScale Volumes always de-duplicate data first before writing data down to the local flash drives. This is what is known as in-line deduplication which is very different from post-de-duplication which will de-duplicate data after it is written down to disk.
