Atlantis Computing Extends Reach Across Middle East
Atlantis Computing ® , the leading provider of Software-Defined Storage, today announced details of its first channel partnership in the United Arab Emirates in the form of a distribution agreement with Mindware. Dubai-based Mindware is one of the UAE’s leading virtualisation-focused distributors, and will bring Atlantis’ solutions to organisations across all vertical markets.
“This is a great opportunity for us to expand not only geographically but into new vertical markets spanning government, communications, finance, and oil and gas, as well as the healthcare and transport sectors which are fast-growing industries in the UAE,” said David Cumberworth, VP EMEA at Atlantis Computing. “Our product,Atlantis USX ™, will allow IT administrators to benefit from VDI technology which, until now, has been seen as prohibitively budget-thirsty.”
“Mindware has a strong distribution business unit based on virtualisation and Atlantis, with its unique solutions centred on storage consolidation, desktop virtualisation, performance acceleration and server-based computing, is an ideal fit for us. The Atlantis software is a valuable addition to our portfolio and we look forward to introducing it across the Middle East,” said Vijay Kumar, business unit manager at Mindware.
Atlantis USX enables businesses to get 10 times more storage capacity out of their existing storage investment, reclaim up to 90% of their SAN and NAS storage capacity and turn under-utilized direct-attached storage (DAS) into enterprise-class storage that delivers all-flash array performance. Instead of being caught in an endless cycle of doubling storage capacity every two years, IT organizations are now empowered to extend the life of existing shared storage by 5 years or more without the need to purchase any new hardware. Storage costs may be lowered by 75% by Atlantis USX, which provides 10 times more effective storage capacity on existing storage, accelerates performance without additional hardware and enables businesses to unlock under-utilized DAS.
