Mit traditionellem Storage kaufen Unternehmen entweder SAN- oder NAS-Arrays und die Server separat. Dieser Ansatz ist kostspielig und Komplex weil die Unternehmens-IT verantwortlich für die Integration, das Management und die Wartung der Systeme für die Erbringung des IT-Services ist. Atlantis Hyperscale integriert die Server, den Storage und die Virtualisierungsschicht in eine Appliance, die in der gleichen Größenordnung Storage zur Verfügung stellt – jedoch bei 50 – 70% geringeren Kosten.
Bei Converged Systemen kaufen Unternehmen eine Kombination aus SAN oder NAS-Storagesystemen, die durch Dienstleister in einem einzelnen Rack zu Ihnen geliefert werden. Somit bieten Converged Systeme, zusammengesetzt aus traditionellem Storage, Netzwerkkomponenten und Servern wenig Wert im Vergleich zu traditionellen Systemen. Dieser Ansatz vereinfacht die Integration der Systeme auf Kundenseite, ist jedoch immer noch Komplex in der Wartung, bietet limitierte Performance bei Dickbasiertem Storage und ist Kostenintensiv. Atlantis Hyperscale integriert die Server, den Storage und die Virtualisierungsschicht in eine Appliance, die in der gleichen Größenordnung Storage zur Verfügung stellt – jedoch bei 50 – 70% geringeren Kosten.
Hyper-Converged Appliances integriert man lokalen Storage, Server und die Virtualisierungsschicht in einer Einheit und vereinfacht somit das Deployment und die Verwaltung. Trotzdem bleiben Hybride Hyper-Converged-Systeme kostenintensiv und bieten im Vergleich zu All-Flash Storage Systemen eine vergleichsweise schlechte Performance. Atlantis Hypersaale ist das erste All-Flash Hyper-Converged System, welches bezahlbar ist und alle Vorteile eines Hyper-Converged-Systems in sich vereint. Atlantis Hyperscale verhindert den Vendor Lock-in, da es unterschiedliche Hypervisor unterstützt, die Abhängigkeit von Propriäteren Hardware-Herstellern unterbindet und vier der größten Hardware-Hersteller unterstützt (Cisco, HP, Lenovo und Supermicro)
Atlantis HyperScale all-flash hyper-converged appliances provide an ideal infrastructure platform for server virtualization that provides servers, storage, networking and virtualization in a single appliance at a cost that is 50-90% lower than traditional datacenters.
According to Gartner, 71% of all servers are now virtualized and 82% will be virtualized by 20181. The rapid growth of virtualized server OS instances and VM sprawl for databases, web servers, application servers and other VMs have outstripped the ability of traditional storage systems to service their storage traffic. Datacenter storage requirements are growing at 40% per year—doubling every two years. Not only is capacity growing out of control, but virtualized servers require high performance storage that delivers the IOPS, throughput and latency required to make applications perform their best. The purchase of traditional SAN and NAS storage to meet this demand is costly and exceeding budgets. All-Flash arrays are costly and create yet another silo in the datacenter. Hybrid hyper-converged systems lack the performance and remain costly.
Atlantis HyperScale hyper-converged appliances deliver all-flash performance at 50-90% lower cost than traditional storage or competitive hyper-converged appliances. Instead of integrating costly and complex SAN, NAS or all-flash array storage with servers, Atlantis HyperScale delivers an all-flash hyper-converged solution that is pre-integrated with compute, enterprise-class all-flash storage and virtualization. Within 60 minutes, organizations can deploy turnkey appliances that provide up to 96 CPU cores, 2TB of RAM and 24TB of all-flash storage that can support hundreds of server VMs.
Performance, cost, and complexity issues have derailed many VDI and XenApp projects, depriving IT and end users of the many benefits of virtual desktops. Traditional deployments which required silos containing separate storage and compute made VDI very expensive to deploy, difficult to scale efficiently and challenging to manage and troubleshoot. To keep costs in check, VDI and XenApp performance was often sacrificed, resulting in desktops that were slower than the PCs they were replacing.
Atlantis HyperScale hyper-converged appliances deliver virtual desktops with the performance of a MacBook Air at up to 75% lower cost when compared with traditional storage or other hyper-converged appliances. Instead of piecing together costly and complex SAN, NAS or all-flash array storage with servers, Atlantis HyperScale is a fully integrated compute and storage solution that comes preconfigured with Citrix or VMware hypervisors. Within 60 minutes, an automated configuration process can set up the required infrastructure to deploy up to 600 virtual desktops per appliance. Atlantis HyperScale is easily scalable and runs on your preferred hardware platform, minimizing data center complexity. Also, the appliances come with a single point of support and maintenance with 3 year, 24x7x365 coverage and 4 hours parts replacement.

Nationstar Mortgage Video Case Study
Atlantis HyperScale all-flash hyper-converged appliances deliver outstanding storage and compute performance for all types of databases at a 50-90% lower cost.
The chart above shows a HammerDB database benchmark (creation phase) doing 3.9 million transactions per minute on an Atlantis HyperScale CX-24 appliance. Databases are the foundation of many mission-critical business functions and rely on storage performance to process stock trades, execute a web search or support ERP applications. For online transaction processing (OLTP) databases, storage systems are measured by the number of transactions that can be achieved per minute and the cost per transaction per minute. Due to the size, performance and reliability requirements of databases, customer are force to purchase expensive all-flash or tier-1 SAN arrays for millions of dollars to support their databases.
Atlantis HyperScale hyper-converged appliances deliver all-flash performance that accelerated databases at 50-90% lower cost per transaction than SAN or All-flash arrays. Instead of integrating costly and complex SAN, NAS or all-flash array storage with servers, Atlantis HyperScale delivers an all-flash hyper-converged solution that is pre-integrated with compute, enterprise-class all-flash storage and virtualization. Within 60 minutes, organizations can deploy turnkey appliances that provide up to 96 CPU cores, 2TB of RAM and 24TB of all-flash storage to support to most intense database workloads.
