Atlantis Computing Expands HyperScale Lineup with Industry’s Most Affordable Hyperconverged Appliances for ROBO and Micro Data Centers
Atlantis Launches HyperScale Appliances on Dell PowerEdge FX2 Platform
Atlantis Computing®, the leading provider of Software-Defined Storage (SDS), today announced the expansion of its hyperconverged appliance product line with the introduction of the Atlantis HyperScale™ CX-4 model and the availability of all models on the Dell PowerEdge FX2 server platform. The CX-4 appliance is a two-node hyperconverged integrated system with compute, all-flash storage, networking and virtualization designed for remote offices, branch offices (ROBO) and micro data centers.
Paul Delory, research director at Gartner Research said, “ROBO infrastructure often takes the form of a micro data center, an architecture that is increasingly common for specific use cases. HCIS can make ideal building blocks for micro data centers. A cluster of HCIS appliances can be paired with a network switch to create a complete infrastructure stack that requires relatively little space, less power, no special cooling system, no nonstandard power outlets and no special mounting hardware. In Gartner’s analysis, the two primary design goals in a micro data center are that it should run autonomously, but be controlled centrally; and that it should be a self-contained solution that is easy to deploy, replace, monitor and control remotely. The HCIS architecture aligns very well with these design objectives.”
With 4 TB of effective storage capacity and 48 compute cores in a compact 2U footprint, Atlantis HyperScale enables IT organizations to meet all the infrastructure requirements of their remote sites, simplify operations, cut costs and ensure that all critical data remains safely backed up to a central site. At a starting price of $43,000 for a two-node configuration (including 3 yrs. of 24×7 support), the Atlantis HyperScale CX-4 is the most affordable hyperconverged appliance on the market and includes data protection, high availability and disaster recovery capabilities at no additional cost.
