Atlantis Computing Debuts In-Memory Storage Platform
The platform reduces inefficiencies of storage silos by unifying all storage types into a pool of storage resources that are available to all apps.Software-defined storage specialist Atlantis Computing announced its Ilio USX platform designed for virtualized server workloads such as databases, mail, collaboration, big data and an array of business applications. The software enables customers to deploy more virtual machines (VMs) on their existing storage, and can pool and optimize a wide variety of storage classes including storage area network (SAN), network area storage (NAS), random access memory (RAM) or any type of direct attached storage (DAS), including solid state storage, Flash and SAS or SATA storage to create hybrid, hyper-converged or all-flash storage from existing data center resources. The platform is designed to help reduce the inefficiencies of storage silos by unifying all storage types into a pool of storage resources that are available to all applications. The company’s approach is to insert transparently existing virtualized data centers through the deployment of VMs, which integrate with the hypervisor layer to present standard file and block based storage to applications.
It integrates with existing provisioning workflows and orchestration systems through representational state transfer (REST) application programing interfaces (APIs) to enable automated policy-based provisioning.
