Software-defined storage solution eliminates the need to purchase more storage for up to five years by freeing up 85% of capacity

Atlantis Computing, the leading provider of Software-Defined Storage (SDS), has delivered a 10x desktop performance improvement for over 600 users at Catalyst Housing, one of the UK’s leading housing associations. The Atlantis SDS solution was 20% more cost effective to purchase than any other storage solution evaluated by Catalyst.

Catalyst had serious performance issues with its previous storage hardware that underpinned its desktop environment. The Atlantis solution integrated easily with the storage hardware that Catalyst already had in its network and only required the purchase of some extra RAM to accommodate the anticipated future growth in user numbers. Atlantis was also selected due to its ability to scale out to accommodate growth in user numbers.

Catalyst is one of the UK’s leading housing associations with 21,000 homes across London and the South East of England. The organisation wanted to migrate to Microsoft Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2013 to offer improved IT capabilities for its staff. It carried out a comprehensive evaluation of three potential options from Nimble, Nexsan and software-defined storage from Atlantis. The Atlantis solution was installed in just one day, and currently supports a VDI environment used by 95% of Catalyst’s 650 employees. “Atlantis was absolutely the fastest; the other two products tested simply couldn’t compare,” said Konrad Kowal, Technical Architect, Catalyst.
