Atlantis Computing More Than Triples Customer Base, Surpasses 200 Customer 
Storage Optimization Software Pioneer Has Sold More Than a Quarter of
a Million Licenses to Date 
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA and LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 02/26/13 -- 
Today at VMware Partner Exchange (PEX) 2013, Atlantis Computing(TM),
the award-winning leader in data center storage optimization
solutions, announced that it has surpassed the 200 customer milestone
and sold more than a quarter of a million licenses to date following
a year of record growth. In 2012, Atlantis Computing more than
tripled its customer base and received more than a dozen prestigious
industry awards and accolades including "Best of VMworld" U.S., "Best
of VMworld" Europe, "Best of Citrix Synergy," Storage magazine and's 2012 "Product of the Year" award and CRN's
Virtualization 100 List, while releasing breakthrough product
innovations such as In-Memory Storage(TM) technology to enable the
efficient virtualization of storage-intensive applications. 
Earlier today Atlantis Computing released Atlantis ILIO Persistent
VDI 4.0, a major new release:  
"2012 was a banner year for Atlantis Computing with accelerating
growth of our customer base with some of the largest desktop
virtualization deployments in the world. Our innovations in the area
of In-Memory Storage resulted in Atlantis sweeping the most
prestigious industry awards," said Bernard Harguindeguy, president
and CEO of Atlantis Computing. "The fact that we have been able to
more than quadruple our bookings over the last 2 years and fund our
growth through our customers' business is a testament to the value
that we are delivering to our customers." 
Atlantis Computing was founded in 2006 with the vision of optimizing
the way storage-intensive applications use data center storage when
virtualized -- to reduce the amount of storage consumed, optimize the
use of shared storage, boost performance, and reduce
operationalization risks. Today, Atlantis ILIO is the only solution
on the market that enables the deployment of both Virtual Desktop
Infrastructure (VDI) and virtualized XenApp with no physical storage.
Deployments use server RAM as primary storage leading to
better-than-PC user experience at a lower cost, all while automating
installation, storage sizing and datastore creation to reduce
implementation risks and to deliver working deployments faster.
Atlantis ILIO will soon be available for cloud-scale deployments of
server applications such as databases, mail servers, collaboration
and Big Data. Atlantis ILIO is hypervisor and storage agnostic. 
Atlantis Computing's deployments range from 25 users to 100,000 users
across all verticals, with a significant share in mission-critical
settings such as hospitals, government agencies and investment
banking. Atlantis Computing has more than 200 customers around the
world including JP Morgan Chase & Co., Colt -- a very large EMEA
service provider, CBRE, Mid Coast Hospital, Washington Trust Bank,
Hawaii Medical Services Association (HMSA), AIG and Qualcomm. To see

Memory VDI and In-Memory XenApp Technology
 Unlike traditional storage,
Atlantis ILIO In-Memory technology decouples performance from the
traditional limitations of disk-based storage by running all sessions
directly on server RAM -- as primary storage -- to provide
unparalleled performance, including 12 second boot time, near-instant
application launches and improvements to the user experience such as
allowing the use of Windows Index and Search Service that deliver
desktop and email searches near-instantly. Atlantis ILIO In-Memory
based implementations have very low CAPEX and OPEX since there is
either no physical storage at all or very little to install, manage
and maintain. In addition, because all sessions run on RAM, the
amount of storage traffic sent over the network is drastically
reduced, addressing a key VDI and virtualized XenApp deployment risk.
Further, deployments are streamlined with sophisticated tools for
automated installation, configuration, storage sizing, data store
creation -- and automated HA configuration.
