Atlantis Computing’s ILIO virtual appliance can help organizations take their virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) projects off the backburner by reducing VDI storage requirements and increasing performance. ILIO offloads most of the read and writes between VDI and storage, and uses deduplication to shrink the amount of data that moves across the wire. It works with Citrix XenDesktop and VMware View VDI applications. Atlantis Computing began shipping in 2009 and has $15 million in funding. Although it has little head-to-head competition, major storage vendors are also working to address VDI issues, mostly by adding solid-state drives (SSDs) to their systems.
