Atlantis Partners with VMware To Extend Virtual Volumes to $300 Billion In Existing Datacenter Storage
Today, VMware announced the release of VMware Virtual Volumes as part of vSphere 6. VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes (VVOL) is a critical part of the storage industry revolution of moving from physical storage to software-define storage (SDS), shifting policy control from being locked up in proprietary hardware to being integrated into the Software-Defined Datacenter. As one of the first VVOL partners, Atlantis is excited to start leveraging VVOL as part of our Atlantis USX software-defined storage platform to deliver SDS across entire datacenter.
The most important synergy of Atlantis USX and Virtual Volumes is the ability to accelerate the adoption of SDS by pooling every existing SAN, NAS, VSAN, DAS in the datacenter – whether it is Virtual Volumes enabled or not –instantly manage it through Virtual Volumes and deliver storage as containers that allow customers to realize the cost, performance and agility of Software-Defined Datacenters. Without Atlantis USX, Virtual Volumes will only be able to address new storage arrays that choose to write to the Virtual Volumes APIs, limiting the rate of adoption.
