Atlantis ILIO Solves the Virtual Desktop Storage Challenge for Swiss Bank – Frankfurter Bank Case Study

Frankfurter Bank cuts VDI storage costs 93% from $2,223 per desktop to $150 per desktop

Frankfurter Bankgesellschaft wanted to implement a virtual desktop client environment to provide secure, reliable, remote access for employees and contract developers that could easily be managed by their IT staff. IT management was committed to the virtualization strategy, but the pilot VDI deployment suffered from severe IO bottlenecks and users complained about poor performance. The bank considered several options to improve storage performance, but costs were staggering, particularly given the scale of the bank’s deployment and limited resources available.

Atlantis ILIOTM was recommended by the bank’s IT partners Axept AG (a Swisscom Company) and brought in for testing. The Atlantis ILIO VDI optimization software dramatically reduced IOPS required from the storage system, cut the storage capacity consumed and improved application response time for a fraction of the cost of buying additional SAN or SSD storage.
