Atlantis USX


All-Flash Performance at Half the Cost of SAN

Atlantis USX™ is a software-defined storage solution that delivers the performance of an all-flash storage array at half the cost of traditional SAN or NAS. Pool any SAN, NAS or DAS storage and accelerate its performance by up to ten times, while at the same time consolidating storage to increase storage capacity by up to ten times. With Atlantis USX, enterprises can avoid purchasing additional storage for more than five years, meet the performance needs of any application without buying new or faster storage hardware, and transition seamlessly from costly shared storage systems to lower cost hyper-converged systems and public cloud storage.


Atlantis USX enables enterprises to pool and abstract all storage (SAN, NAS, Flash, RAM, DAS, Hybrid Arrays, and Public Cloud) and instantly deliver virtual storage volumes to any application. By pooling storage, both storage capacity and performance are used more efficiently in the datacenter, lowering cost, increasing performance and making datacenters more agile.

Data Services

Atlantis USX includes integrated HyperDup™ Content-Aware Data Services that leverage Atlantis real-time deduplication technology to provide data reduction, IO acceleration, provisioning, data mobility, security and business continuity for any storage.


Atlantis USX provides policy-based management of virtual storage volumes that allows administrators to define the capacity, performance and availability requirement for individual VMs or applications.


Atlantis USX delivers automation of all storage functions through REST APIs that are leveraged by third-party orchestration systems to provide Quality of Service (QoS), self-healing to provide resiliency, autonomics to create the optimal storage volume configurations, and event-based management to automate self-provisioning of applications.

Storage Consolidation

Atlantis USX enables enterprises to get up to ten times more effective storage capacity out of existing and new storage hardware by consolidating SAN and NAS storage, increasing effective storage capacity through patented deduplication and compression, unlocking direct-attached storage and making it possible to use public cloud storage for applications running in the datacenter. Enterprises that are running out of storage capacity can extend the life of their existing storage by up to 5 years without purchasing any additional hardware, saving millions of dollars per year.

Performance Acceleration

Atlantis USX allows enterprises to achieve all-flash array performance at half the cost of SAN using Atlantis HyperDup™ IO acceleration technology. Atlantis USX uses a small a mount of server resources (RAM, Flash or SSD) to make SAN, NAS or DAS disk-based storage perform like flash arrays. Atlantis USX can scale-out performance to achieve an unlimited number of IOPS at a cost as low as five cents per IOPS.


Atlantis USX allows enterprises to deploy persistent or stateless virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployments that are faster and cheaper than physical PCs. Atlantis USX both significantly decreases the cost and accelerates the performance of VDI deployments. For Stateless VDI, deploy with no storage, using server RAM as primary storage. For Persistent VDI, deploy hyper-converged systems that use pooled server storage (RAM, SAS, SSD, Flash) or shared SAN, NAS and all-flash arrays.


Atlantis USX allows enterprises to deploy server-based computing (SBC) solutions such as Citrix XenApp, Microsoft RDS and VMware Horizon that deliver better performance and eliminate application performance problem with no storage required, significantly lowering SBC deployment costs. Atlantis USX HyperDup inline deduplication and compression reduces the size of SBC images, write-caches and differential disks by up to 20 times, making it possible to deploy SBC in RAM at a lower cost than local SAS, SSD, SAN or NAS.

Cost Reduction

Enterprises that deploy Atlantis USX will reduce storage costs by up to 80% by significantly extending the effective capacity of existing storage. This reduces the amount of physical storage required for any application set; avoiding the purchase of additional storage hardware, enabling the deployment of lower cost DAS and public cloud storage, and eliminating the inefficiencies of existing storage hardware.


Atlantis USX delivers all-flash performance across the entire datacenter to all applications, increasing transactions per second for databases, reducing mailbox response time, accelerating virtual desktop performance, and cutting data processing time.

Data Mobility

Atlantis USX enables virtual workloads to move between storage systems, datacenters and the cloud in seconds. The new found storage agility opens up new opportunities to move workloads closer to users, lower compute costs, leverage storage in the cloud, or migrate from one storage system to another seamlessly.
