Atlantis Computing and SSC Zwolle win Best of VMworld User Award 2015 for Hyper-Converged Stretched Cluster Solution Project
Hyper-converged solution provides high availability and disaster recovery across multi-site data centers
Atlantis Computing®, the leading provider of Software-Defined Storage (SDS), today announced that following the deployment of its hyper-converged solution at SSC Zwolle, a Netherlands public sector data centre project, it has been awarded a prestigious Best of VMworld 2015 award. The project, which was built around the Atlantis USX 3.1 hyper-converged solution with stretched cluster, beat a number of key industry projects to win the ‘Best Virtualisation and Service Consolidation Project’ category at VMworld 2015 in Barcelona, Spain.
Set up as a joint initiative by the Netherlands province of Overijssel and the cities of Zwolle and Kampen, Shared Service Center (SSC) Zwolle’s objective is to share and lower the costs of providing data center resources to local municipalities. Atlantis and its partner TenICT have created an entirely new IT infrastructure that has the ability to move data, virtual machines and application workloads between sites, enabling zero recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO) between multiple data centers.
“Winning the Best of VMworld award with our partner TenICT and SSC Zwolle reflects how Atlantis is transforming the economics of the data center and making business continuity affordable,” said Bob Davis, chief marketing officer at Atlantis. “We developed and created the Stretch Cluster feature within our USX software to provide organizations like Zwolle with a hyper-converged solution that is extremely efficient whilst remaining cost effective. This award validates and recognizes Zwolle as one of the most innovative users of best of breed hyper-convergence and x86 hardware in the industry.”
