Atlantis Computing Inducted into the JPMorgan Chase Hall of Innovation
Atlantis Computing, a leading provider of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) storage and performance optimization solutions, today announced that it was inducted into the JPMorgan Chase Hall of Innovation for its contribution to the successful deployment of VDI at JPMorgan Chase. The award is presented to emerging technology companies selected by a committee of JP Morgan Chase IT executives based on their ability to impact business, innovate, and collaborate effectively.
The award was presented at the 2nd annual J.P. Morgan Technology Innovation Symposium on Tuesday, October 5, 2010. The Symposium brought together influential innovators – leaders in the investment community, CEOs of established and emerging technology companies, JPMorgan Chase IT Senior Executives, and John Chambers, Chairman & CEO, Cisco Systems – to share ideas and collaborate. This year’s event included a breakout session titled ’Achieving Enterprise Productivity: Virtual Desktops & Unified Communications‘.
“The deployment of virtual desktops is strategic to JPMorgan Chase,” said Paul McEwen, Managing Director, JPMorgan Chase. “Virtual desktops increase user productivity, lower costs and will ultimately become a competitive advantage for us.”
To make VDI deployments successful, enterprises must be able to achieve a lower upfront cost per desktop and better performance than a physical PC. With existing VDI storage options, IT organization are forced to either overspend on storage or compromise on the user experience. Atlantis Computing addresses these two barriers to VDI deployments. Atlantis ILIO is a VDI storage and performance optimization solution that integrates with Citrix, VMware, Quest and other VDI offerings to cut storage costs, provide IT teams with more storage options, and boost desktop performance. Atlantis ILIO is a unique and innovative IO virtualization technology that fundamentally changes the economics and performance characteristics of VDI by intelligently optimizing how the Microsoft Windows operating system interacts with VDI storage.
“JPMorgan Chase is at the forefront of VDI deployments and has worked closely with Atlantis to build its next-generation VDI architecture, which is optimized to significantly reduce the cost per desktop and boost performance,” said Bernard Harguindeguy, president & CEO of Atlantis Computing. “We believe that JPMorgan Chase has designed an elegant architecture that pushes the boundaries of VDI performance and scalability to move beyond today’s largest deployments, and we are honored to be recognized for our contribution to this project.”
