Atlantis Computing Awarded Patent for Industry-Leading Software-Defined Storage Data Service

Content-Aware I/O Processing Innovation Provides Storage Optimization Breakthrough for Virtualized Datacenter Workloads

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- Atlantis Computing™, the leading provider of In-Memory software-defined storage, today announced that it was awarded a key patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for its unique approach to Content-Aware I/O processing. This patent anchors the foundation for Atlantis ILIO's In-Memory storage optimization software, delivering dramatic reductions in storage traffic and capacity as well as a huge boost in performance for any virtual workload.

Validation for content-aware, real-time I/O processing
This new Content-Aware I/O processing patent validates the innovative approach that Atlantis Computing implemented using intelligent software to elegantly solve the very expensive performance and capacity challenges of storage in virtual environments. Generic caching technologies cannot deliver the foundation for real-time intelligent decision making needed to optimize performance and capacity. Atlantis ILIO In-Memory storage optimization delivers a set of highly efficient data services that are automatically and transparently applied to any virtual environment to optimize how storage is consumed by any virtual machine. They include content-aware IO processing, inline de-duplication and real-time compression -- all with microsecond latencies.

Delivers data services to any hypervisor, any server, any storage tier
Atlantis ILIO is available for VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Citrix XenServer. It is transparent to both the virtual machine and the underlying storage. There are no agents required and no modifications needed, and installation and configuration are fully automated. Atlantis ILIO optimizes both the capacity and performance of any class of storage in the virtual datacenter. It can reduce the amount of storage needed by a VM by up to 90% -- placing more VMs on any storage backend -- while boosting the performance of the environment. Enterprises can now achieve more with their existing storage investments and budgets.

A proven platform and approach
Through its highly-scalable software-defined platform, Atlantis Computing has helped over 500 organizations manage and optimize more than 12 Petabytes of In-Memory storage for more than 580,000 VMs globally, including some of the largest successful virtualization deployments in the world. Customers include Blue Cross Blue Shield of Hawaii, Colt Technology Services, Frankfurter Bankgesellschaft, Hammersmith and Fulham Council, JP Morgan Chase, University Hospitals of Leicester, U.S. Army, Washington Trust Bank, and over 500 others. Atlantis ILIO is purpose built to optimize and manage all virtualized server workloads.

Supporting quotes
"This patent award is an important milestone not just for Atlantis Computing but for storage and virtualization as a whole -- we are now clearly in an era where virtual workloads will shift from running on physical SAN & NAS to software defined storage powered by the hypervisor. This patent also raises the bar on smart software techniques as a valid approach to elegantly solving complex storage performance challenges instead of applying brute force approaches in hardware," Chetan Venkatesh, Founder and CTO

"This patent award is an important validation for the unique approach that Atlantis Computing has taken to optimize the use of storage in the virtual datacenter," said Bernard Harguindeguy, President & CEO, Atlantis Computing. "The flexibility, performance gains, and cost reductions that are delivered directly empower any IT team to fully optimize any datacenter."
