The Evolution of Atlantis: USX

Atlantis Computing delivered a great event at Woodbine Racetrack organized by Ross Di Stefano, Canadian Sales Director at Atlantis Computing and Lisa Kramer the Inside Sales Representative.  Attendees had the opportunity to meet and hear Seth Knox the VP of Products at Atlantis talk about Atlantis USX.

Atlantis USX is a Software-Defined Storage (SDS) solution that has been generally available since January of this year.  Interest and adoption have been strong due to the importance of Software-Defined Storage (SDS).  In Seth’s presentation he explained that virtualization has driven both storage capacity and performance requirements.  The challenge with traditional storage vendors is that the level of innovation has been slow due to the dependency on hardware.  By decoupling the value of storage solutions into software, innovation can happen at a much more aggressive rate.  This is necessary as average storage requirements continue to grow at 40% a year, meaning most customers double capacity in 2½ years.  Although SDS is used to describe many things, there are certain common characteristics necessary for true software defined storage.

Storage Consolidation: You can apply Atlantis USX to any storage pool and manage it as a single set of resources.  Atlantis will have the capability to incorporate 3rd party Cloud storage pools with a Cloud gateway feature releasing next year.

Support for Hyper-Convergence: With USX you can take Direct Attach Storage add true data services such as inline dedup and performance acceleration and present it as an enterprise class storage volumes.

Cloud Management: USX fully supports a RESTFul API to enable automation and control of the software.
