Lakeside Software and Atlantis Computing
Introduce Integrated Data Reporting
& Optimization of VDI Storage
Deeper insight into virtual storage utilization
enables more efficient and cost-effective storage
Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and Mountain View, California ― August 30, 2011 ―
Lakeside Software®, a leader in business intelligence solutions for IT professionals and Atlantis Computing™, a leader
in VDI storage and performance optimization solutions, today announced the integration of Lakeside SysTrack® and Atlantis
ILIO™ solutions, giving IT professionals deeper insight into VDI storage utilization and the means to more efficiently
reduce storage cost per desktop while delivering faster desktop performance.
Atlantis ILIO enables customers to dramatically cut the amount of storage required for VDI
by up to 90% and deliver a “Better than PC” experience. During the pilot phase of a VDI
deployment, joint customers use Lakeside’s SysTrack Virtual Machine Planner (VMP) to quantify
the storage reduction and performance improvements realized by deploying Atlantis ILIO.
Through this integration, SysTrack VMP tracks, aggregates and reports comprehensive statistics
projecting VDI storage utilization and disk access performance before and after a VDI deployment
with Atlantis ILIO optimization, and provides projected savings realized through this implementation.
Data is provided in both tabular and graphical formats to facilitate actionable interpretation of
VDI storage statistics. SysTrack also monitors and manages the post-VDI deployment environment
to assure continued storage optimization.
“To justify implementation, VDI must deliver cost, performance and scalability
improvements over the existing physical PC-based computing infrastructure,” said Dan
Salinas, Vice President of Business Development for Lakeside Software. “Atlantis
ILIO provides measurable benefits in all three.”
“There is a pervasive problem with VDI projects under sizing the amount of storage
and IOPS needed per desktop to deliver acceptable desktop performance. Ultimately,
this results in users rejecting virtual desktops,” said Rajiv Pimplaskar, VP
of Corporate Development, Atlantis Computing. “Lakeside SysTrack VMP helps
IT teams identify the optimal storage specifications required to deliver the
desired virtual desktop user experience.”
